An international dual PhD degree is a programme that enables a PhD student to carry out his/her research work under the joint supervision of two thesis directors in different countries and to be awarded a PhD degree in the respective institutions. The programme encourages international attractiveness, doctoral mobility, cooperation and fosters the internationalisation of academic courses at Université Paris Cité.

The programme provides several benefits, including the opportunity to be awarded a PhD degree from a French university and one or several foreign institutions based on the standard duration of a thesis, expertise from 2 PhD directors within 2 different research teams, a single defense, acquisition of at least 2 degrees with worldwide recognition, more career opportunities, additional skills as well as an international experience contributing to your personal and academic backgrounds. Lastly, it offers access to a research environment, equipment, documentary ressources and shared knowledge in two institutions.
It is also an opportunity for the laboratories involved to create as well as strengthen bonds with a foreign laboratory, participate in a common project with one or several other laboratories and develop multidisciplinary and multicultural research.
An international dual PhD degree takes 3 years (full time). However, it is possible to include a 4th year when signing the dual PhD degree agreement under the approval of the College of the doctoral school. The PhD degree cannot exceed 6 years.
