The candidates may participate in the admission procedure even before they formally finish their studies and obtain a master’s degree or an equivalent degree. However, they will not be admitted to the Doctoral School until they deliver (upload into IRK system) a document confirming obtaining the appropriate title.

The candidates can register, provide all the data and upload the necessary documents for the assessment. They will be evaluated and may be interviewed (after a positive evaluation of a project of a research plan) before the defense of the master’s thesis.

At the registration stage, which is until June 21, 15:00, the candidates only need to enter the field of study they are graduating, the type of diploma and the year of obtaining it. Of course, a candidate who has already obtain the diploma may and should provide all the information and scans regarding the diploma upon registration.

Until July 15, 12:00 – before the results of the admission – the candidate must upload a scanned copy of the diploma, or a certificate from the institution awarding a master’s degree on the term of finishing education or a declaration that they will deliver (upload into IRK) a diploma, specifying the date of delivery of the document. In the last case, the scanned copy of the diploma must be submitted by September 10 at the latest – if not, the candidate will receive a decision not to be admitted to the Doctoral School, regardless of prior qualification.

Certificate from the institution awarding a master’s degree

A candidate who has obtained a master’s degree or an equivalent degree, but whose university has not yet issued a diploma, may upload to the system a certificate issued by that university, confirming that the relevant qualifications have been obtained. The diploma must be delivered immediately upon receipt.
