Duration of the unit: 4 semesters, during which at least 120 credits have to be collected.

 

Distribution of credits:

1) educational credits (min. 60 credits): a minimum of 12 courses to be accomplished: 6 compulsory, 4 specialization, 2 elective.

2) research credits (min. 40 credits):

a) consultation: max. 5 credits/semester, awarded by the supervisor at the end of each semester

After collecting 120 credits, the unit ends with the complex exam.

 

The complex exam has 2 parts:

  • Academic/theoretical part (based on the accomplished courses)
  • Dissertation part: the PhD student reports on his/her research results, gives a literature review and presents his/her research plan for the thesis writing unit of the Doctoral Program. This part of the exam is based on a 20-30 pages essay submitted by the PhD student in advance.

 

2. Individual research and thesis writing

 

During this unit, the PhD student carries on with his/her research, publishes the research results, prepares and defends his/her thesis-proposal and dissertation.

 

Duration of the unit: 4 semesters, but it can be postponed for two more semesters. The dissertation has to be submitted within 6 semesters.
