A jointly supervised PhD (known as cotutelle) offers PhD students the opportunity to be jointly enrolled at the University of Lisbon and a foreign University.
The PhD student is jointly supervised by academic staff at each institution and upon successful completion of the PhD, the student is graduated from both universities with a PhD and receives a diploma from both universities with the information that the thesis was elaborated in cotuttelle.
The PhD student:
- must have an approved PhD research proposal at both universities;
- must have a supervisor in each university and respective acceptance letter;
- must be formally enrolled at each university and therefore pay the tuition fees.
