The doctoral Charter, common to the 12 doctoral schools of the AMU’s doctoral college, specifies the conditions under which the doctoral training is carried out. It sets out the conditions for monitoring and supervising the doctoral candidate's thesis. It specifies also the deadlines, the necessary coordination between the doctoral candidate, his/her thesis supervisor(s), the head of the research unit and the director of the doctoral school, as well as the objectives to be achieved and the means to be implemented in terms of training and preparation for the future career of the doctoral degree holders.
