PHD TRACK in computer science
From the start of the 2024 academic year, PSL University will offer a new Phd track in computer science. Highly selective and entirely taught in English, PSL PhD tracks are 5-year fully funded programs intended for high-potential students hoping to become top level researchers, in France or abroad. Through its PhD Track Grants, PSL will support outstanding students for the entire duration of their graduate studies, from their Master’s to the completion of their PhD.
- Application procedure based on an application package (to be submitted online from 17 October to 11 December, 2023 on PSL portal) and interview. 
Given the very high selectivity of the PhD Tracks, it is strongly recommended that you apply for the Master’s degree in parallel if you are interested in both programs. 

Teaching location

The courses are given in the heart of Paris on the campuses of the PSL schools involved in the Master's program. The students may also spend part of their education abroad, taking advantage of the various international agreements of PSL and the schools involved.
School for registration: ENS - PSL or Dauphine - PSL, depending on tracks.
Degree delivered: National Master’s degree conferred by Université PSL and prepared at Dauphine–PSL or ENS - PSL.


Heads of the Master's program: Hassan AISSI
