Defence a the half way point (end of the second year)
60h hours of scientific coursework and 60 hours of professional training (please see details below).
The PhD student is asked to make an oral presentation of his/her work at an international conference, as well as a laboratory seminar.
Each year you must enrol in your school/department. In order to obtain the signature of the director of the school/department you must include, along with your application form, a summary of your past coursework in addition to the classes you plan on taking.
It is very important to take into account the possibility of not completing your work in 3 years. Extension of the 3-year deadline are exceptional and must be justified. If you anticipate that you will not be able to complete your work in the allotted time you must notifify your director before the end of March of the 3rd year. The objective is to establish a calendar with your director to complete the thesis. This is preliminary tot the approval of being granted a 4th year. The ED director reserves the right to not sign the approval of an erolment in 4th year.

If you follow other courses (as mentioned below) that you think may be part of the training validated by the ED, please contact the management of ED.
