With its dynamic, diversified world-class training environment, Québec-Océan is a hub for graduate students (Master’s and Doctorate). Students receive technical, logistical, and financial support, and at the same time are involved in state-of-the-art research, often as part of national or international networks. This added value provides them with valuable networking and job opportunities.

Doctoral students must do coursework and conduct research to complete the total number of credits necessary for the diploma. Research results are presented in the form of a dissertation.

Before beginning the doctoral program, the student must choose a research supervisor (and possibly a co-supervisor), the program of study, and the university. The table below summarizes the choices possible among the professors, members of Québec-Océan. The student must contact the potential supervisor, find out about the details of the program of study, and apply for admission to the chosen program. The student should also immediately inquire about any financial support that may be available, for example, scholarships from FRQNT or NSERC (competitive), institutional scholarships, support from the research supervisor, from Québec-Ocean or other ones (see the menu at left under “Financial support for students”).
