Third-cycle doctoral study programmes (SQF level 10)

-

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).

In order to complete the programme, students must pass all examinations, including a final examination, and write and defend a master's thesis.

-

  • A completed first-cycle (Bologna) study programme in mathematics or mathematics for education; or
  • a completed old (pre-Bologna) professional higher education programme in practical mathematics; or
  • a completed first-cycle programme in an engineering or natural science field, where the candidate has already mastered the basics of mathematical analysis and linear algebra; such fields include, for example, financial mathematics, physics, computer science and information science; prior to enrolment candidates must also complete course units essential for further study; these requirements are determined with reference to the field in question and consist of between 10 and a maximum of 60 credits.
