Doctoral student status

Depending on his / her situation, the status of the doctoral student may vary.

The different types  of doctoral student status :

  • student: the doctoral student does not receive any funding for his/her thesis
  • scholarship student: the doctoral student receives specific, one-off financial support (e.g. scholarship from a foreign government, a foundation, etc.)
  • the public-law employed student: the doctoral student receives funding and holds a doctoral contract for his/her thesis
  • the privately employed student: the doctoral student receives funding from a French or foreign company


The type of thesis funding (scholarship, with or without a French employment contract) gives the doctoral student access to certain services but also requires him/her to comply with certain obligations
