Third-cycle doctoral study programmes (SQF level 10)

-

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 bachelor's degree in geography or a related field,
  • active proficiency in at least one world language,
  • six months' work experience. Active participation in significant scientific work (research camps, research projects, etc.) during undergraduate studies can also be counted as work experience, provided this work was not part of the compulsory higher education programme. Work experience of this kind is recognised in the case of students who have completed a higher education programme with the above-average results (an average grade higher than 8) or have won a student prize for undergraduate work (Student Prešeren Prize, Krka Prize, etc.).

If candidates hold a degree in a related field, they must demonstrate by means of an oral examination during the first year that they are familiar with the basic problems of physical, social and regional geography and of the study field in which they intend to develop their specialist knowledge during their studies.
