What are PSE students becoming once they’ve graduated from M2 ?
- Download the synthesis “PSE Graduate Placement” (sept. 2020).
Half of PPD students go on into a PhD program, mostly at PSE. You are encouraged to do so if you are interested by a career in academia or if you plan to get a non-academic positions for which PhD is a prerequisite. At PSE, there is no direct admission into the Doctoral training. This is the same system as in most US universities, where the first two years of PhD program are devoted to course work (and the admission into the third year is conditional on successful performance on the first two years). Thus, one can think of admissions to PSE master’s in the same way as admissions to the course-work years of a standard US-university-based PhD program.
