Entrance exam description:
The professional evaluation of the educational materials (degree, transcripts, results) and the research topic is the task of the relevant Doctoral School. This evaluation is followed by a Skype interview with one of the professors of the Faculty, which aims to check the applicant’s level of motivation, language skills and professional knowledge. (In case of a missing certificate about the English language proficiency we conduct a Skype interview in order to check the applicant’s English language skills.)

Programme structure

Doctoral students shall complete 30±3 credits per semester, and a total of at least 240 credits from the doctoral school’s list of courses during the entire programme. The number of academic credits required to be earned in the first 4 semesters is 16. The number of research credits is 224. Students shall undergo a mandatory qualification at the end of the first and the third years. At the end of the fourth semester doctoral students shall take a complex examination. Upon the successful completion of the eight semesters of coursework, the doctoral student is given a pre-degree certificate (absolutorium). Obtaining the absolutorium is a precondition of the submission of the doctoral dissertation. The doctoral student is required to submit the final version of the doctoral dissertation (as revised after the preliminary defence) within three years after the complex examination.
