Candidates should contact the relevant academic school as early as possible and identify a supervisor at Kent and discuss your cotutelle plans with them, whether that is an advertised staff project or an original research project.
Once the academic school has confirmed it would be willing to admit and supervise you as a cotutelle candidate, you will need to apply for a place at the University of Kent through a standard PhD application, indicating that you wish to be considered for the cotutelle award by Friday 17 April 2020.
Applicants will need to complete a ‘Cotutelle Statement’ which explains why a cotutelle arrangement is necessary for their project (150 words).
Applications will be considered by a panel comprising the Dean of the Graduate School (Chair); Dean for Europe and the Faculty Associate Deans (Graduate Studies). The panel will review applications based on student quality and the appropriateness of the project as a cotutelle between Kent and Lille.
Questions should be directed to:
