Joint PhD

The VUB can award so-called joint PhDs. Aย joint PhD, orย โ€˜cotutelle de thรจse' in French,ย is a doctorate thatโ€™s prepared in collaboration with two universities. The research is done under supervision of a supervisor in each institution and at the end of the successful project you will be awarded a PhD degree by both universities.
