It means that we accept not just History (MA) and Ethnology (MA) degree, but all kind of degrees which orientated or connected to the chosen research filed. We grant the opportunity to the applicant to ask an external supervisor.

Entrance exam description:
The professional evaluation of the educational materials (degree, transcripts, results) is the task of the relevant Doctoral School. This evaluation is followed by a Skype interview with one of the professors of the Doctoral School, 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.)
