Consortium d’Etablissements Français d’Enseignement Supérieur et de Recherche pour le développement de l’USTH


The Consortium plays an active part in the USTH project : it hosts Vietnamese PhD students in its research laboratories. The students who are granted a three-year scholarship by the Vietnamese authorities have the opportunity to write a thesis in one of the six subject areas offered by USTH. They will then become researchers-lecturers at USTH.


More than an hundred PhD students have been hosted in French research centres and laboratories since 2009. The target is to train 400 PhD students over a ten- year period.

2009 : 24 PhD students.
2010 : 22 PhD students.
2011 : 21 PhD students.
2012 : 31 PhD students
2013-2014 : PhD students.
2015 : 10 PhD students
2016 : 10 PhD students

Total : 137
By 2020 the goal is 400 PhD graduates.

32 PhD students at the USTH doctoral shchool since 2013.
