Students' knowledge is assessed by means of practical exercises and seminar papers, and also via products, projects, performances, services, etc. and by examinations. Examination performance is scored as follows: 10 (excellent); 9 (very good: above-average knowledge but with some mistakes); 8 (very good: solid results); 7 (good); 6 (adequate: knowledge satisfies minimum criteria); 5–1 (inadequate). In order to pass an examination, a candidate must achieve a grade between adequate (6) and excellent (10).

-

Enrolment in the doctoral study programme is open to candidates who have completed:

  • a second-cycle study programme,
  • an integrated master's programme consisting of 300 credits,
  • a previous (pre-Bologna) programme leading to an academic higher education qualification.
  • Graduates of former study programmes leading to a specialisation who have previously completed a professional higher education programme may enrol in third-cycle study programmes after completing an individual research component consisting of 30 credits.
  • Course units totalling 60 credits are recognised in the third-cycle doctoral programme for graduates of former study programmes leading to a pre-Bologna research master's degree or a specialisation following completion of an academic higher education programme. On enrolment, compulsory supplementary examinations consisting of up to 24 credits are defined on an individual basis, so that candidates can acquire the complete knowledge base necessary to enter the programme. These examinations are defined from the range of subjects covered by the doctoral programme. The sum of all credits from compulsory supplementary examinations, the individual research component, second- and third-year seminars and any elective subjects of the candidates' own choice is 120, meaning that together with the 60 recognised credits, candidates accumulate a total of 180 credits.
