The UBFC Doctoral College has set up a unique cross-disciplinary training offer dedicated to all doctoral students in the Bourgogne Franche-Comté region throughout their doctorate.

This interdisciplinary training offer will enable doctoral students to acquire knowledge and skills that are complementary to those acquired during their research and a broader scientific culture to strengthen their background for their future career.

The UBFC cross-disciplinary training catalogue is organised around 10 themes:

  • Communication
  • Knowledge and teaching tools
  • International scientific culture and valorization
  • Ethics in research and scientific integrity
  • Documentary training courses
  • Computer science and scientific modelling
  • Languages
  • Management and entrepreneurship
  • Furthering your career
  • Open science

The amount of compulsory training to be followed during the PhD is defined by the doctoral school
> Please contact the secretariat of your doctoral school to determine the number of hours required, depending on your situation.

All UBFC doctoral students must follow a minimum of 9 hours of training in research ethics during their doctorate (decree of 25 May 2016 setting the national framework for training and the conditions leading to the award of the national doctoral diploma).

Each UBFC doctoral student is limited to 7 transversal training courses per academic year and, beyond that, they can follow the specific training courses offered by their doctoral school.

All Doctoral College courses are free of charge.

All doctoral students registered for a training course undertake to follow the course in its entirety.
We tolerate 20% of absences over the total duration of the course, beyond which the course will not be validated.
Any unjustified absence will be reported to the doctoral school.
