The doctoral process alternates between doctoral training, research work, including publications and communication, and drafting of the thesis, leading to the ultimate stage: the thesis defence.
n practice, the doctorate is a long-term test, a source of great satisfaction and of big and small difficulties, where one learns to excel and assert oneself. International openness is undoubtedly one of the major characteristics of the doctoral programme. An international mobility experience opens new scientific, professional and personal horizons, constituting attractive assets to put forward on the CV!
The mastery of a foreign language is already a good example, as is the expansion of one's network for future collaborations, or even a post-doctorate.
