INFORMATION for new foreign doctoral researchers:  Please contact GATE (Guichet Accueil des Talents Etrangers) of Paris Saclay for help with administration

First years students must sign up via ADUM platform where you can choose the french or english option. Many of you already have a personal account from your application procedure. If not, please create your personal account in ADUM.

Important for all registering a 4th time or more:

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: The “Check Liste” that you can find by clicking “Liste des pieces à fournir” in ADUM asks for a number of things that we do not require.  We require only the following, for you to upload in a single .PDF in the section "Documents to be attached", together with your photo:  

 For first time registrations: 

  • A photocopy of your diploma or an attestation of having obtained a French or European Masters Degree 
  • For non-European diplomas: a detailed CV, grade transcripts with a list of courses taken and a copy of the last diploma obtained 
 For all, including the first year’s: 
  •  A copy (scan) of your national identity card or passport (and residence permit for non-European citizens) 
  • Your last student card 
  • Proof of financial support for your thesis (doctoral contract, other work contract, fellowship…): First years financed on a doctoral contract have no contract as yet. This is not a problem. The administration knows that you are financed.
  • In the case of a Cotutelle with joint degree programme: the cotutelle agreement and proof of registration in the other University if you have already registered there 

 Afterwards when you have finalised your procedure (only after having uploaded your pdf) and clicked "Transmission des données pour acceptation" you can print out the following necessary administrative documents from your personal account space in ADUM:

  • the “Autorisation d’inscription en doctorat”
  • the "Dérogation" (only for 4th year's and more)
  • the doctoral training agreement
  • the "fiche Apogée" (for the 1st year's)
Please note that the 1st year's must provide the page with the signatures of the “Charte du doctorat”

The director(s) of the doctoral school should sign these papers last, so please do not come until you have all the other signatures. Please make an appointment with the director <> or the vice director <> to make sure they are there. 
 We will scan the "Autorisation inscription and the page of "Charte du doctorat" with all the signatures.

After getting one of their signatures you will make an appointment with the administrative services for doctoral studies in building 301 of the Orsay Campus. There they will help you complete the administrative registration, for which you will need the documents listed including the proof of payment of the CVEC, a means of payment (380€ by credit card or cheque) and, for the 1st registration only, the page of the "Charte du doctorat" with the signatures.
