Ph.D Programs


Each year almost 900 PhD students come to the University of Rouen for high quality training in a most favorable environment. Roughly 150 students obtain a PhD each year, of which 60 recieve an international dual PhD. Be aware that doctorate program enrollement must be renewed each year and all doctorate programs should be approved by the Research Center. Pre-enrollement is necessary for all first year doctorate students and is known in French as OPI (l'Opération de Préincription). To enroll, students will need  a research proposal, a copy of a Masters diploma (or equivalent), a resume, and proof of adequate research funds which should include recieved scholarships and grants.
