Individual Contracts (Cotutelles)
Individual Contracts govern the cooperation between two institutions and the particular student. Masaryk University divides this cooperation to:
- Jointly Supervised Studies (also called cotutelle), where the Cooperation Agreement compromises joint academic supervision at the doctorate level, governing the responsibilities of the collaborating institutions with regard to thesis evaluation and defence
- European Doctorate, where upon fulfilment of conditions laid down by the European University Associations a title Doctor Europaeus is awarded.
Cooperation based on a signed Individual Contract takes place under the terms of accredited degree programmes running at one of the MU Faculties and at the cooperating institution.
