Prepare your future


The PhD degree demonstrates your very high level of expertise and signifies that you possess qualities and skills greatly appreciated by the professional world.

During your training, you will have the opportunity to meet with researchers, teachers and occasionally entrepreneurs, all those who may be interested in your research subject and who are liable to facilitate your future integration into the professional world, whether at a university, a private firm, a public entity or an association.

Do not await your thesis defence to begin seriously considering and questioning your future career path! In this manner, you will be able to adjust your initial research experiences to the demands of your professional projects. (PhD student Guide)

► Don’t hesitate to download & read carefully The Phd Student Guide of the University of Lyon [PDF - 3 Mo]. It has been compiled to help you understand your PhD programme, anticipate its various stages, enrich your professional experience as a young researcher and prepare your future career.
