Doctoral training

Principles and aims

Each year the FSA organises at least two doctoral training sessions, alone or in conjunction with other institutions working in the Mediterranean area and the Balkans. These sessions are intended for students with a good knowledge of French, who are enrolled in a doctoral programme (at DEA [Diplôme d'Études Approfondies]/'Master 2' level and above).

These seminars are intended to bring together, from a thematic point of view, the study of an archaeological site or region and the approach of a discipline. They are equivalent to a theoretical amount of 50 hours of teaching, spread out over about twelve days, including visits to remains and museums, theoretical classes, and practical exercises. For students who wish to validate this training as part of their university studies, an assessment is possible. In the month after the training sessions, participants must send the FSA's director a brief report.

Practical arrangements

Transport costs are to be borne by the relevant doctoral school (or the participant).
Internal trips are organised and funded by the FSA, which also provides accommodation on the sites in twin rooms and in the FSA's guesthouse in the event of transit via Athens (in all cases, bed linen and towels are provided).
Participants are responsible for subsistence costs (c. 10 euros per day).


Applications are submitted online via the 'Missions de l'EFA' platform:

Successful candidates must immediately confirm their participation by email and send a deposit cheque for 100 euros, which will be banked in the event of late withdrawal without good reason.
