Third-cycle doctoral study programmes (SQF level 10)

-

Jožef Stefan International Postgraduate School, University of Ljubljana

-

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).

-

Enrolment in the first year of the second-cycle programme is open to candidates who have completed:

  • a first-cycle study programme consisting of at least 180 credits in a science, engineering or computing field, or a higher education programme in one of these fields comprising at least three years of lectures. Candidates must also be actively proficient in English, which they may prove by means of language certificates.
  • Graduates of first-cycle study programmes consisting of 180 credits in other fields may submit an application to the MPŠ studies committee, which defines the course units candidate must complete before enrolling in the first year. These course units – determined with reference to how different the field is and taken from the contents of the first-cycle programme – consist of between 10 and 60 credits. Candidates may complete them during the first-cycle programme, during supplementary study programmes or by passing examinations before enrolment in the master's programme.
  • Candidates who have completed a first-cycle (undergraduate) programme consisting of 240 credits in the natural science, technology or engineering fields may enrol in the second year of the second-cycle programme; 60 credits are recognised for such candidates. On enrolment, compulsory examinations consisting of between 18 and 21 credits are defined on an individual basis, so that candidates can acquire knowledge that complements their previous studies.

-

In order to complete the programme, students must complete all course units prescribed by the programme for a total of at least 120 ECTS credits.
