Dates and time of particular courses


Doctoral training at the Doctoral School:

  • is based on the doctoral training programme and individual research proposals,
  • is interdisciplinary,
  • is conducted in modules,
  • is held on English.

Implementation of the doctoral training programme 
  • in the case of elective courses, the doctoral student presents a list of courses from the didactic offer of the Doctoral School or other entities, approved by the supervisor. In the case of choosing courses which have not been included in the educational offer of the Doctoral School, a consent of the School Director or an authorized Coordinator is required.
  • in the case when the number of doctoral students enrolled for the course is less than 3, or in the case of classes financed from external funds - less than the number specified in the relevant regulations, the course may not be implemented. If this course is obligatory, it is guaranteed to be launched in the next academic year.
  • if, in accordance with the doctoral training programme, a doctoral student has to complete courses to make up the curricular differences, he/she is obliged to complete them within the time limit. 

Completion of doctoral training elements

The Doctoral School does not use the system of ECTS credits, and settlement of the doctoral training programme implementation takes place on an hourly basis. The conditions for passing the course are determined by the teacher in consultation with doctoral students at the beginning of the course. 

In order to pass the current training period (year of study), the doctoral student has to:

  • obtain positive credits for the courses he was obliged to complete during this period, 
  • conduct classes (teaching practice – as a teaching fellow or a teaching assistant), appointed by the head of the organizational unit conducting the discipline, with first and / or second degree students, in accordance with the requirements set out in the curriculum of the Doctoral School - the way they are conducted is assessed (positively or negatively) by another teacher,
  • complete courses in due teaching load,
  • prepare and update an individual research proposal, according to the model defined by the School Director, 
  • submit a report on the progress of scientific work (once a semester for first-year doctoral students, and once a year for doctoral students above first year) to the School Director, according to the model defined by the School Director, 
  • get a positive supervisor’s assessment,
  • take active participation in the department / faculty / institute seminars as well as in the annual doctoral seminar, in the manner specified by the School Director or the Coordinator,
  • conduct active publication activity, 
  • after the second year of doctoral training take part in the mid-term evaluation resulting in positive assessment.
