Aspiring candidates must hold a degree equivalent to a European Master (5 years of Higher Education). Applicants should contact a Doctoral Department to inquire about the procedure for submitting a research or consulting department’s research proposals. The Doctoral Department will refer the candidate to a thesis supervisor and review with the candidate the options for financing the candidate’s doctoral studies. Once the candidate is accepted by the Doctoral Department and thesis supervisor, he or she signs a thesis contract.
Students who have finished their Bachelors can apply for a Masters degree in France. Learning French is not a mandatory requirement as many programmes are taught in English. Each University will have its own application process but in general here are the documents that you will need:
