Thank you again for your interest in our group and Laval University.?Both are focused on cutting edge research and are very keen to invite students from around the world to participate in our success. In your situation you are seeking a joint phd, I believe, which would require an inter-university agreement and more specific?agreements between supervisors. I believe achieving these goals would be somewhat challenging and, frankly, something that I would not favour spending my time coordinating. If I am wrong about your intentions, then please let me know. Otherwise, please accept?my apologies for declining such an arrangement. I have included CSC program representatives for Laval University in this email in case you or they would like to provide or receive more clarity on the situation.
