Admission without competition (funding obtained) / Academic year 2024/2025

Admissions outside of competition can be made all year long, when a thesis director, a team or a laboratory associated with the ED obtains a financing corresponding to the salary of a PhD student (minimum about 1687 euros per month for 3 years), CIFRE financing, ANR, CNRS, etc...

The number of supervisors is limited to 4 per director. Directors with more than 4 supervisors are very special cases and are recognized as such (e.g. thesis in near completion).

Admission is not "automatic" but subject to examination of the file and a hearing before a jury made up of members of the ED council.
For the school, the aim is to verify the adequacy of the candidate-subject-team-financing.
