STUDENT DISSERTATION

The procedure for submitting a dissertation depends both on the type of paper and also on the sponsor and the type of patients included (patients or not from Cliniques universitaires Saint-Luc).

N.B.: The promoter in the legal sense of the term is in this case related to the university, college or institution to which the student belongs, and not to the professor following them (academic promoter in charge). Any dissertation taking place at the Cliniques Saint-Luc must also be followed by a permanent member of the department concerned.

To find out the type of study of the dissertation, follow the link DIFFERENT TYPES OF STUDIES .

Dissertations that are part of a study carried out independently of the student in a medical service must be submitted as a study managed by a permanent member of staff and not as a student dissertation.
