Third-cycle doctoral study programmes (SQF level 10)

-

  • A completed first-cycle (Bologna) study programme in mathematics or financial mathematics; or
  • a completed first-cycle (three-year) academic study programme in an engineering, natural science or social science field, where the programme included at least 10 mathematics credits; such fields include physics, computer science, information science, civil engineering and mechanical engineering; or
  • a completed three-year academic study programme in any field; prior to enrolment candidates must also complete course units essential for further study; these requirements are determined with reference to the candidate's field of study and consist of between 10 and a maximum of 20 credits; or
  • a completed old (pre-Bologna) or new (Bologna) professional higher education programme in practical mathematics; prior to enrolment, students must also complete course units essential for further study, consisting of 45 credits from a first-cycle academic programme in mathematics or a first-cycle academic higher education programme in financial mathematics, where these credits must include examinations in the following subjects: Algebra 2, Algebra 3, Analysis 3, Analysis 4 and Seminar 2 in a first-cycle mathematics programme; or
  • a completed old (pre-Bologna) or new (Bologna) professional higher education programme in any field; prior to enrolment, students must also complete course units essential for further study, consisting of 60 credits from a first-cycle academic programme in mathematics or a first-cycle academic higher education programme in financial mathematics; these course units are determined with regard to the candidate's field of study.

-

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).
