Thesis under joint international supervision

If you wish to do your thesis in "cotutelle", you must first make sure that there is an agreement in the field of physics or astrophysics between the foreign host university and the University of Lyon 1 or the Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon. If this is not the case, it will be difficult to do the "cotutelle".
In any case, an agreement signed between the two parties (host university and Lyon 1 University or ENSL) stipulating the terms of the thesis (total duration of the thesis, duration of stays in each country, place and language of defence, etc.) will be established. It is important to note that you will need to provide proof of an allowance equal to the amount of an establishment allowance during your stay in France. In addition, you must meet the requirements the French and the foreign doctoral schools. A compromise is always sought in order to facilitate the doctoral student's research work: for example, the training hours required by ED PHAST can be reduced by half.
