Selection Process

First Phase: Screening Process

Applicants are asked to submit two letters of recommendation from former instructors or employers, current CV or resume, and English test results (TOEFL, IELTS or BU English test). The Admissions Committee reviews academic record, English scores, letters of recommendation and work experience to assess each applicant’s candidacy compared to the overall pool of applicants. Selected candidates will pass through to the interview process.

Second Phase: Interview Process

Members of the admission committee will interview the candidates based on their research interest, work experience, and their willingness to pursue the PhD degree. Research interest/proposal forms will be provided for the candidates to fill out.

A separate selection process will be conducted by the University of Grenoble Alpes (UGA) for students interested in joining the dual degree. This sectionnelle will take place after the first year once students have a concrete research proposal ready. Obtaining a dual degree with the UGA will require students to spend one year in France.
