Third-cycle doctoral study programmes (SQF level 10)

-

In order to complete the programme, students must complete all course units prescribed by the study programme and subject syllabuses, for a total of 120 credits. Students must write and defend a master's thesis.

-

Examination performance is graded 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).

-

  • A completed first-cycle programme in wood technology at the Faculty of Bioengineering or a comparable first-cycle wood technology programme either in Slovenia or abroad; or
  • a completed first-cycle study programme in another field, either in Slovenia or abroad, consisting of at least 180 credits if the candidate additionally completes up to 45 credits in subjects from the first-cycle academic study programme in Wood Technology; these credits are determined with reference to how different the field is and are defined for each candidate separately by the competent studies committee; or
  • a completed professional higher education programme in Wood Technology under the former system, or any comparable professional higher education programme in the field of wood technology either in Slovenia or abroad; or
  • a completed professional higher education programme in another field under the former system, either in Slovenia or abroad, if the candidate additionally completes up to 45 credits in subjects from the first-cycle study programme in Wood Technology; these credits are determined with reference to how different the field is and are defined for each candidate separately by the competent studies committee.
