- For institutions that handle their own registration (Chimie ParisTech, Ecole Nationale des Chartes, Ecole normale supérieure*, Ecole Pratique des Hautes Etudes, Ecole Supérieure de Physique et de Chimie Industrielles de la ville de Paris, 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.
* ENS handle the registration of the 5 art schools too.
- As of the start of the 2016 academic year, a single dissertation service responsible for all institutions that do not handle their own registration (Institut Curie, Collège de France) is in charge of the administrative procedures and follow-up for all PSL doctoral candidates (enrollment, defenses, awarding of diplomas, etc.).
Doctoral candidates should contact their doctoral school for information.
