Postgraduate studies (DEA) and PhD (Doctorate)


Postgraduate studies (DEA) in Biology

The academic year 2006-2007 is the last year we may enrol a student in a Postgraduate degree (DEA) in Biology.  With some exceptions, third-year postgraduate cycles will not be organised anymore as from the next academic year.

As from the academic year 2007-2008, the postgraduate degree (DEA) in Biology will not be offered anymore.

Third-cycle postgraduate-level studies will only comprise:

  • PhD formation

  • Papers and training related to the preparation of a Phd thesis (doctoral dissertation)

Doctoral dissertation (PhD thesis) in Biology

Doctoral training (60 credits) will lead to a certificate in “research training”. It is organised by doctoral schools which meet the needs of the doctoral student and its scientific expertise. The papers and works to be submitted in preparation for the doctoral thesis correspond to at least 120 credits acquired after a basic degree (Bachelor’s plus Master’s) of at least 300 credits.

Students allowed to do a doctorate and currently enrolled in a postgraduate degree will subsequently be split up into thematic doctoral training modules. The activities carried out in the framework of their postgraduate degree (DEA) will be credited in the framework of the doctoral training they will be enrolled for later.
