Students are required to take courses and examinations, present seminars, annual progress reports, pursue research and publish their data in scientific journals according to their individual study plans governed by respective supervisors. Results of the research are compiled in Ph.D. thesis. Students prepare for the State Doctoral Examination, which tests the range and quality of the student’s abilities in respective field of study and the potential to acquire and creatively implement the knowledge.
