The École des Docteurs is strongly committed to developping cooperation with Colombia. In 2015 a cooperation agreement was signed between the Université Fédérale Toulouse Midi-Pyrénées and Colfuturo, allowing Colombian students to get funding to do their PhD in Toulouse, and that same year a cooperation agreement was signed with the Distrital University. Since 2014 we participate in Europosgrados student fairs to meet and guide Master students wishing to do a PhD in France.
In 2016, 35 Colombian PhD students are doing their PhD in Toulouse, of which 12 are doing a joint PhD.
COLFUTURO is a Colombian non-profit foundation that was established in 1991 with the support of the National Government and some of the most important companies of the private sector in the country at that time. Its main objective is to provide financial support and increase the possibilities of Colombian citizens to access high-quality postgraduate study programs abroad. Throughout 20 years, COLFUTURO has financed postgraduate education programs for nearly 6,000 students in 28 countries.
To participate in COLFUTURO’s yearly application process, students shall follow the regular admission process to the program in the educational institution in the country of their choice. COLFUTURO does not get involved in the different universities’ or in their study programs’ application and selection processes. Additionally, applicants shall demonstrate advanced proficiency in a foreign language and hold an undergraduate degree, except for those students applying to double degree programs.
