An ethics center guarantees and safeguards the conditions under which research and dissertations are prepared at the University.

Generally, admission to the doctoral cycle, or third cycle, is conditioned by obtaining a Graduate Degree (i.e., a Master’s) in the same chosen discipline. This requirement is combined with the choice of a dissertation* subject, the presence of a supervisor, and the payment of the tuition fees. Should the Graduate Studies degree vary from the discipline targeted for Post-Graduate Studies, the candidate’s file is submitted to the Equivalency Committee of the University for Evaluation.

* The dissertation can be written in English, French or Arabic.
