Doctoral School (ED) 509 “Sociétés méditerranéennes et sciences humaines” guides doctoral students throughout the preparation of their thesis and ensures that it proceeds smoothly.
Since 2012, individual monitoring committees (CSI) have been effective at the University of Toulon (UTLN) and help provide support and an outsider’s perspective on the path of doctoral students.
Individual monitoring committee
The CSI monitors the work of doctoral students and advises them, as defined in the ED 509 Rules and Regulations.
The CSI meets at the end of each academic year and, at the latest, before the re-registration deadline. Beyond this frequency, it may also be convened at the request of the doctoral student or supervisor.
The individual monitoring committee’s role is essential in determining whether an exemption from the three-year thesis preparation rule is justified.

In the event of a major conflict between the doctoral student and the thesis director (co-director or co-supervisor) or the unit director, a mediation process is offered. It is implemented by the director of the doctoral school in accordance with the general mediation provisions defined in the UTLN thesis charter and the doctoral school statutes.
