PhD of Pharmacovigilance and pharmacoepidemiology
after third year completion and thesis oral defence (180 ECTS credits)
The whole Eu2P PhD curriculum covers 3 consecutive years, for a total of 180 ECTS credits, including 120 credits gained progressively researching and writing a thesis (3 years x 40 ECTS credits) and 60 credits for secondary PhD portfolio activities carried out at any given moment during the research period.
PhD students will be driven by several professors belonging to the Eu2P partner Universities for their multiple "co-tutelle" thesis, but also to carry out their advanced project research, Portfolio Activities or simply to meet them and benefit from their knowledge. All these activities will be detailed in their personal Doctoral Study Plan.

|Advanced research training||30|
|Portfolio activities||Eu2P Summer school||4||20|

The PhD thesis does not carry any credits associated with it. It is only after 3 years of active and successful research activities (as validated by the supervisors in the different institutions) that the student is envisaging the thesis defence, after approval by the Doctoral Board. After a successful oral defence, the student is declared eligible for the award of the joint PhD degree.
Full-time doctoral study
PhD curriculum should be carried out on a full-time basis for 3 consecutive years with a sufficient funding.
One to two additional years of study may be granted to the full-time PhD student upon his/her formal and justified request presented to the Eu2P Doctoral Board.
Half-time doctoral study
PhD curriculum may be carried out in parallel to a professional occupation with a sufficient funding: in such case, the PhD curriculum may be followed and research carried out on a half-time basis.
Trainees must ensure that they shall be able to complete their research work and defend their PhD thesis within an absolute maximum of 5 years beginning with the date of initial registration in the doctoral programme. No further extension period can be accepted except for justified parental/maternity or sick leave.
