Before enrolling, the following conditions must be met:

  1. You must have a French master's degree or a degree equivalent to the master's degree, obtained after completing coursework that confirms your aptitude for research. If you do not have a French master's degree, you must request a degree equivalency from the doctoral school you wish to join.
  2. You must contact a thesis supervisor accredited to supervise research (HDR) and a host laboratory and receive their approval to enroll in a doctoral program.
  3. You must choose a doctoral research project (thesis topic). Most laboratories, graduate schools and doctoral schools post a non-exhaustive list of potential thesis topics on their website.
  4. Depending on the doctoral school, you must obtain funding for the entire doctoral program.

The first step is to apply on ADUM (Accès Doctorat Unique et Mutualisé - Single and shared access to doctoral programs). After receiving approval from the doctoral school to enroll in the first year of the doctoral program, you must register on the UniCA website under the heading "s'inscrire".
If you have any problems, please contact your doctoral school or the department of studies (service scolarité) of your campus.

For foreign doctoral students, the Welcome Center provides information, advice and individual assistance before and during their stay on the Côte d'Azur.
