PhD Code of Practice

Code of Practice for the Doctorate

The "Commission de la relève académique" of the University of Lausanne developed a code of practice for the doctorate, approved by the Direction in November 2013. This code highlights the active roles and shared responsibilities of doctoral candidates and their supervisors. It aims to create a fruitful working climate for the advancement of the thesis.

For all information about the Code of Practice, please contact: Dr Mélanie Bosson and Dr Pauline Fritsch,


Individual counselling


Throughout your thesis, do not hesitate to contact the Graduate Campus to request an appointment to discuss the supervision of your thesis. You will be able to discuss topics such as the PhD code of practice, your role, your rights and duties, and those of your supervisor.
