Third-cycle doctoral study programmes (SQF level 10)

-

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).

Admission requirements Enrolment in the second-cycle Nuclear Engineering programme is open to candidates who have completed:

  • a first-cycle (Bologna, undergraduate) programme in physics, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, computing, building and civil engineering, mathematics or chemistry.
  • a first-cycle (Bologna) programme in another field, where depending on the field of the completed programme candidates must pass differential examinations totalling up to 60 credits. These units are determined with regard to the difference or similarity of the field and candidates complete them during the first-cycle programme, during supplementary study programmes or by passing examinations before enrolment in the master's programme. The decision on the content and quantity of differential examinations is taken by the Studies Committee of the Physics Department at the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics (OF FMF).
  • a professional higher education programme under the former system in physics, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, computing, building and civil engineering, mathematics or chemistry.
  • a professional higher education programme under the former system in another field, if prior to enrolment the candidate has completed course units essential for further studies, totalling up to 60 credits. Candidates may take differential examinations during the first-cycle programme, during supplementary study programmes or by passing examinations before enrolment in the master's programme. The decision on the content and quantity of differential examinations is taken by the Studies Committee of the OF FMF.

Conditions for enrolment are also met by candidates who have completed education equivalent to the qualifications listed in point 1 to 4 at a foreign university, and who enrol under the same conditions as those that apply to candidates who have completed their education in Slovenia.

In order to complete their studies, students must complete all course units, consisting of 60 ECTS credits per year (a total of 120 ECTS credits). Students complete the programme when they obtain a passing grade for their master's thesis defence
