The 20 Doctoral Schools of UPS, that cover all scientific domains, form a Doctoral College whose goal is to define a common doctoral policy and implement high standards and effective governance.

It provides training on scientific and complementary skills as well (open days, etc.). UPS is signatory of the European charter for researchers and code of conduct for the recruitment of researchers.
