interdisciplinary doctoral study program

The programme consists of two types of elective subjects:

- theoretical subjects (5 or 10 ECTS)

- individual research subjects (5 or 10 ECTS)

A doctoral student, together with the supervisor, chooses subjects from the selection of all the subject included in the programme. The study plan is approved by the coordinator of the scientific field of study the doctoral student is enrolled into.The choice of other subjects is possible from among all other elective subjects and from the syllabuses of other comparable programmes of domestic and foreign universities that have programmes evaluated by the ECTS or other systems that enable assessment of comparability. In the 1st and the 2nd year, the students can select courses from other programmes amounting to up to 15 ECTS. A doctoral student chooses subjects in relation to the research field of the doctoral dissertation.

The contents of subjects are chosen on the basis of the research work of the persons responsible and providers of the subjects, who, for individual teaching plans, are represented by six scientific articles in the field covered by the subject.

Individual research subjects are carried out in the laboratories of departments and institutes, clinics and other research units of course lecturers.

STUDENT CAN CHOOSE AMONG ALL THEORETICAL AND INDIVIDUAL RESEARCH SUBJECTS, IRRESPECTIVE OF SCIENTIFIC AREA INTO WHICH IS HE/SHE ENROLLED:
