Third-cycle doctoral study programmes (SQF level 10)

-

Students must complete all requirements defined by the study programme in order to complete their studies.

-

  • A completed first-cycle study programme consisting of at least 180 credits in the field of chemistry for education; or
  • a completed first-cycle study programme consisting of at least 180 ECTS credits in the field of chemistry, if prior to enrolment the candidate has completed course units essential for further study, totalling 14 ECTS credits, and a corresponding number in the other part of the two-subject study programme; or
  • a completed first-cycle study programme consisting of at least 180 credits in the field of chemical and natural sciences. Candidates must complete the course units essential for further study prior to enrolment. These course units consist of 5 to 30 ECTS credits and a corresponding number in the other part of the two-subject study programme; or
  • a completed professional higher education programme adopted before 11 June 2004 in a chemistry or natural science field, if prior to enrolment the candidate has completed course units essential for further study, totalling 5–30 ECTS credits, and a corresponding number in the other part of the two-subject study programme; or
  • a diploma from an academic higher education programme in a relevant field, adopted before 11 June 2004, and a diploma from a professional higher education programme in a relevant field, adopted before 11 June 2004; course units totalling up to 30 ECTS, along with a corresponding number in the other part of the two-subject study programme, will be recognised for candidates who have also completed a specialisation programme.

-

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).
