Doctoral training programs

Throughout their PhD, students at the Université de Lyon can benefit from a wide range of training programs

  • Disciplinary training offered by their doctoral school,
  • Scientific training provided by their institution or their laboratory,
  • Cross-training for professional purposes offered by the Université de Lyon.

Interdisciplinary vocational training

These programs aim to provide useful skills required to work as a young researcher and pursue your career, both in the academic and outside world.

How to enroll

  • You must be a PhD student at the Université de Lyon and have an account on the SIGED management site for doctoral studies.
  • View the training programs on this page or directly on SIGED in the "Catalogue of training programs".
  • Enrollment must be carried out on SIGED and is only possible whilst there are still spaces available.
  • As a general rule, enrollment opens 2 months before the start of the training program and closes 2 weeks before.
  • For selective training programs, enrollments will only be accepted after the application files have been examined (CV, cover letter, etc.)
Interdisciplinary training programs are funded by the Région Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes.

Good to know

  • Do not wait until your final year to undertake a training program.
  • You may take more modules than the amount requested by your doctoral school, but they must not exceed 50 hours per year.
  • For each training program you undertake, you will receive a certificate detailing the number of hours spent on the program, provided that you have attended at least 2/3 of the training program.
  • The certificate is available from your SIGED account, under the "Mes formations" ("My training programs") tab. To access it, you must first answer a short evaluation questionnaire.
  • To find out more please read our SIGED user's guide (FR).
