- For institutions that handle their own registration (Chimie ParisTech, Ecole Nationale des Chartes, Ecole normale supérieure, Ecole Pratique des Hautes Etudes, MINES ParisTech, Observatoire de Paris, Université Paris-Dauphine), the procedures for enrollment are specific to each dissertation preparation establishment. Doctoral candidates should directly contact the academic/doctoral department of their institution.
