Course objectives
The specific content and objectives of the course and the resulting requirements for its completion are always based on the individual study plan and its semester content. They are determined according to the principles set by the doctoral board of the relevant program. Unless otherwise stated by this procedure, the course is usually aimed at continuing the study of relevant resources (and searching for other sources), completing the definition of methodological approach that will be used to solve the defined issues, creating a proposal for the work structure and solution concept. The aim is to elaborate in writing the basic theses and ideas on which the next procedure will be based, as a rule to create a part of the working text as well as a timetable for the next procedure, and to obtain feedback on these partial outputs and for developing corresponding skills.

Syllabus
  • The syllabus is prepared individually after agreement with the supervisor within the framework of the individual study plan. It usually involves continuing to study relevant sources (and searching for other sources). Consultations with the supervisor and other persons are underway, the student actively seeks opportunities for obtaining further information as well as feedback on already processed outputs. Definition of the methodological approach that will be used in solving the defined issues is completely completed; Essential theses and ideas from which the next procedure will be based are elaborated in writing, usually a part of the working text is also presented. For example, these outputs can be formalized in the individual study plan as "theses of dissertation". Discussion of these outcomes at a discussion meeting (whose format and composition will be determined by the supervisor) is usually a milestone of study, the fulfillment of which is an obligation stipulated in the individual study plan.
