How to enrol in a dissertation

Update : 07/16/2018

Admission is accorded by the Director General of Montpellier SupAgro on the basis of a proposal by the PhD school’s director after consultations with the thesis supervisor and the director of the research unit.

Montpellier SupAgro can only enrol or re-enrol you after consulting your PhD school. If you are defending your dissertation between September 1 and December 20, you must re-enrol, be up-to-date with your social security contributions and provide proof of civil liability coverage during your presence in the laboratory.
