Co-advisorship Agreement Signature
Students wishing to register in a Ph.D. program under the conditions of a co-advisorship must first obtain the approval of the partner institution and of Université de Montréal. An agreement is then signed by the doctoral candidate, the two research supervisors and the authorities in charge of each of the institutions.
The co-advisorship only becomes official when the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies (FESP) has received all the signatures from UdeM and those of the partner university. At Université de Montréal, the Dean of the FESP holds the authority to involve Université de Montréal in a specific co-advisorship.
This agreement stipulates and confirms the admission of the candidate in the two institutions and specifies the academic requirements of the program of study as well as a certain number of guaranteed points for the smooth running of the co-advisorship, particularly regarding the social welfare protection.
