Admission requirements

Description of verification and evaluation criteria

The entrance exam is one round and the interview will deal mainly with the dissertation plan and candidate’s knowledge in the given field of study. During the entrance examination the candidate must demonstrate the technical and linguistic skills to study the given field, along with abilities necessary for independent scientific work.

The applicant provides the committee with a dissertation project (topic and content) both in written and electronic form. It is recommended that the project is signed by a potential supervisor. The project shall include scientific contribution, realisation plan, funding possibilities and links to the existing research of current research teams. The project is usually 1 to 3 pages long.

For the entrance exam, the applicant prepares a presentation of the project for approx. 10 minutes. The committee assesses, apart from scientific skills, mainly this presentation, importance and relevance of the topic (also in relation to existing research in the field) and the clarity of the presentation.

The examination is graded with a maximum of 100 points, of which 30 points may be awarded as a bonus for giving a more specific idea of the study content and planned dissertation in the voluntary application appendix, including the dissertation topic, a brief annotation, an anticipated supervising department and the consent of a specific supervisor to supervise such doctoral project.

Based on a written request submitted electronically together with the application, but no later than by 12th May 2022, the dean may permit that the entrance exam will take place via information and communication technology, but only for serious and documented reasons such as health or study abroad.
