Final state doctoral examination and defence of the doctoral thesis

The state doctoral exam is oral and consists of the discourse on thematic clusters settled by the doctoral student with the members of the appointed commission (each member can assign 1-2 thematic clusters) on the basis of the consultations and with the consent of the student’s supervisor and the chairman of the programme council. The themes are selected in the framework of the study programme and should verify the doctoral student’s knowledge and his/her abilities to discuss and present his/her own views and conceptions. The commission comes to the final decision on the basis of secret vote evaluating the results as “passed” or “failed” and completing them by the marks A, B, C, D, E, F.

Requirements of the study

The obligatory doctoral student's activities are being formulated in the individual study scheme and besides the general, special and theoretical courses comprise the research and creative student's activity and its presentation itself (in the form of publication and conference activities) , educational practice and a study stay abroad. The triad of obligatory subjects focuses on the special preparation of a student and is immediately connected with the preparation of the dissertation: General methodology, Doctoral seminar (enrolment repeatedly in the 1st, 3rd and 5/7th semesters of the study).

The general and theoretical courses among the obligatory parts of the study are represented by the subjects Philosophy for doctoral study a Theory and history of Slavonic literatures.
The compulsory part of the study (the subject Study stay abroad) is the study stay at a foreign university or other research institution (selected due to the subject of the dissertation) in the total extent od one semester (it may be realised one-time or in smaller sections).
