Training in IUDI based on the Bachelor’s - Master – Doctorate system and the professionalization of teaching. It combines theory and practice and is based both on faith and reason. Based on self-learning, mentoring and collaboration, lessons are hybrid, combining a component "distance learning" which represents 90% of training activities, and a "classroom training" component that accounts for 10% of training activities . The "distance learning" component is via an integrated training system in the Moodle platform. As for the "classroom training" section, it is organized annually as a cohort. In this cohort, students and teachers gather to deepen the skills acquired online, organize evaluation, defenses of dissertations and theses, seminars, conferences as well as cultural and sports activities. The following countries are potential places for holding cohorts: Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon (main campus), France, Madagascar, Senegal, Chad, Tunisia, CAR, DRC, USA (International Headquarters).
Academic supervision of students
Upon registration, the applicant is assigned a tutor, monitor or supervisor. An orientation service and tutoring is available to accompany the new students in their training. Those of Master and PhD may propose a Director for their research. IUDI will examine the proposal taking into account the academic qualifications of the person concerned and his perception of the institution's vision. In addition to the Director, two other professors will form the thesis committee of the PhD candidate, who will accompany him until the defense of his/her thesis.
