Didactic activities

The PhD course includes three types of course:
a. genaral courses (specific background not needed - the aim is to give the student a general understanding of the topic)
b. specialist courses (intended for a specific job title operating in one of the Phd areas)
c. blended courses (both general and specific part)

Considering that students must follow courses for a minimum of 150 hours over 3 years, it is possible to follow all the types of courses.
Here is some information:

  • during the first year of the doctorate program, students are invited to follow all the generalist courses;
  • at the end of each module, the student will take an exam in a short time, in the manner agreed at the beginning of the course;
  • for those who attend the mixed courses, it's possible to take the exam for the general part only - or for both general and specialistic part (it's not possible to take the exam only for the specialistic part);
  • students must include a study plan in the progress report (including possible external courses);
  • the study plan must be approved by the Academic Board, on a proposal of student's tutor.
