To register for one of the upcoming modules below, click on the registration icon on the right and log into your myCUSO account. It is helpful if organizers of an activity register for their own activity in this way too.

If you are not yet a member of the Doctoral Programme in English Language and Literature but would like to join, choose the second option "CUSO doctoral students not yet registered" after clicking on the registration icon.

It is also possible to register for an event of the Doctoral Programme in English Language and Literature if you belong to another CUSO doctoral programme--simply use your normal myCUSO login.

MA students in general and (post-)doctoral researchers who are not eligible to become CUSO members are also allowed to register for events of the Doctoral Programme in English Language and Literature if extra spaces remain available near the registration deadline (priority is given to CUSO doctoral students). However, their expenses for travel, meals and accommodation cannot be funded by CUSO. If you are in this case, choose the third option "Not a CUSO doctoral student" after clicking on the registration icon.

Certificate of Study

Doctoral students may obtain a certificate of study (attestation d'études doctorales), which will give details of their participation in workshop modules.  Doctoral students who would like to receive such a certificate (for example when finishing their thesis/becoming an alumni) should contact the programme coordinator.
