      The entrance exam is one round and the interview will deal mainly with the dissertation plane and candidate’s knowledge in the given field of study.
      Since the interview includes an assessment of the candidate’s ability to communicate in English, the candidate prepares a roughly 3-minute presentation in English (no more than 5 minutes) in which they tell the committee about the results of their master thesis, potentially with an abstract of their publication. There is no access to a projector. The committee asks questions in English too.
      During the entrance examination the candidate must demonstrate the technical and linguistic skills to study the given field, along with abilities necessary for independent scientific work.

      The examination is graded with a maximum of 100 points, of which 30 points may be awarded as a bonus for giving a more specific idea of the study content and planned dissertation in the voluntary application appendix, including the dissertation topic, a brief annotation, an anticipated supervising department and the consent of a specific supervisor to supervise such doctoral project.

      Based on a written request submitted electronically together with the application, but no later than by 12th May 2020, the dean may permit that the entrance exam will take place via information and communication technology, but only for serious and documented reasons such as health or study abroad.
