These courses require a minimum number of students. Other courses can be organized in order to satisfy a particular individual need. Such courses require the approval of Ecole Doctorale.
At least 8 hours of courses must be chosen from outwith the theme of the thesis.

Overview and Career Opportunities
Studies on the employment status of doctors have shown that former students of the Ecole Doctorale have great career success (less than 2% unemployed according to the last study).
Amongst them 16% are foreigners who have returned to their country after finishing the thesis to take up a University post. For doctors working in France, they occupy positions in the private and public sector in equal measure, either in R&D positions or as researchers or lecturers in the fields covered by the Ecole Doctorale.
