GENERAL INCOMING STUDENTS OFFICE
Accordingly to the French system of Doctorate, students have to start looking for a Phd programme from their 2nd year of Master's degree. Carrying out a doctorate programme in France requires either to have a preliminary contact with a potential supervisor that already has ties with your home institution, or to be willing to work on a specific subject.
In France, the admission procedure is the same for any students willing to enroll a Doctorate programme, whatever his nationality is. The fees are also always the same, that is to say €391, which are the same fees as for French students.
