Individual Monitoring Committee

Individual Monitoring Committee

An Individual Monitoring Committee oversees the proper pursuit of each PhD student’s doctoral training, by relying notably upon the Doctoral Charter and the student’s doctoral training agreement. The Individual Monitoring Committee is made up of two persons not involved in the student’s thesis, including at least one person holding HDR accreditation to direct research and one person from outside the BS Doctoral School; these two supervisors are named at the time of registration by the Doctoral School Director, upon the recommendation of the research team head/directorate. The two committee members cannot also serve as the student’s thesis reviewers (rapporteurs). Upon the recommendation of the research team, a committee member could also be named as a tutor, to assist and guide the PhD student outside the Monitoring Committee meetings.

In the event of a committee member resigning, he/she will be replaced according to the same procedure.
This meeting must take place at least 1 month prior to the anniversary of the PhD student’s first registration. Each meeting must include an interview of the PhD student without his/her supervisors being present; however, part of the meeting can be held in the presence of the supervisors. The meeting will furnish recommendations and a detailed opinion regarding the student’s reregistration (transmitted to the Doctoral School Director).
 
These provisions are also specified by the doctoral school's Internal Rules and Procedures.
