The proposed panel should include three members and two substitutes, all of whom must have a doctorate and accredited research experience.

The international joint supervision of doctoral thesis procedure between French and foreign higher education institutions, regardless of the fields of study, is governed by the Order of 25 May 2016.
The student enrols in both universities, in France and abroad, one of which exempts the student from tuition. There are two thesis directors, one in France, one abroad, and the student is required to stay alternatively in France and abroad.

Joint supervision allows students to get a double degree, the French doctorate and the equivalent degree in another country.
As a third-cycle student you surely have a lot of practical questions ahead of your disputation. At this website you can find a time schedule that covers the deadlines from making an application for disputation up until the day of your disputation.
Please note that the thesis is to be published electronically as well as printed three weeks before the day of the public defence, at the latest.
