If you are a graduate of a master degree program (master level of studies) and have a master's degree, you can participate in the admissions to our school. If you are finishing your master's degree (you are in the last semester), but have not yet defended your thesis, you can also apply. However, you will have to defend your thesis by the end of September at the latest.

According to the Doctoral School Admission Rules at Gdańsk University of Technology:

"The Doctoral School may admit persons holding the title of a Master of Science, Master of Science in Engineering or an equivalent, or a diploma entitling to apply for a doctoral degree. If the diploma has not been issued yet, the candidate should present a certificate from the university confirming the defense of the thesis. 

If the diploma has not been issued due to waiting for the thesis defense date, the candidate should submit an appropriate declaration. In such case, the candidate may join the recruitment only conditionally, and their admission to the School will be possible provided that the diploma is delivered by the time of matriculation."

Since training at the Doctoral School is conducted entirely in English, candidates are required to have an English language proficiency level B2 or higher on the global scale of language proficiency according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). A list of certificates accepted by the Doctoral School is included in Annex No. 4 of the current Admissions Rules. A certificate is not required from candidates for whom English is the mother tongue and from people for whom English was the language of instruction at higher education studies.

Please note that on the list of accepted certificates (Annex No. 4 to the Admissions Rules), you will find the TOEFL iBT Home Edition exam. Obtaining a min. 100 points entitles candidates to register for admission to the Doctoral School. The exams are offered almost daily (excluding Thursdays and Fridays) with multiple dates throughout the day, making it an easily accessible alternative to the ACERT certificate and other certificates recognised by the School.

The Doctoral School does not organize English language examinations that lead to the issuance of a certificate. If you do not have any certificate from the list and are interested in obtaining an ACERT certificate at Gdańsk University of Technology that is accepted by the school, please contact directly the Language Center (CJO) of Gdańsk Tech, which is part of SERMO, and/or contact other exam centers that organize exams leading to the issuance of a certificate from the above list of certificates accepted by the school.

The Doctoral School does not guarantee that the examination organized by the Language Center (CJO) or another examination center will be conducted in time to participate in the current recruitment.
