International opportunities and services
Strasbourg supports close scientific cooperation between French and foreign research teams through promoting the mobility of doctoral students and young researchers. The doctoral college has over 47% of international doctoral students.
Joint supervision agreement
Strasbourg’s international policy gives doctoral students the possibility to work under the guidance of two PhD supervisors (one in France and one abroad) within the framework of a joint supervision agreement. A convention is signed between the two institutions to allow the recognition of the PhD in both countries. As an alternative to a joint supervision agreement, doctoral students can prepare their thesis within the framework of an international co-supervision and obtain a European label.

International Doctoral Programme
Doctoral students can be selected for the International Doctoral Programme, which provides trainings as well as specific financial support.
International researchers office
The international researchers office provides international doctoral students with practical information and helps them with formalities upon their arrival in France. However, we advise incoming doctoral students to enquire about administrative procedures before they come to France.
