      The entrance exam is one round and the interview will deal mainly with the dissertation plan and candidate’s knowledge in the given field of study. To facilitate and accelerate the admissions process for doctoral study, it is desirable that the candidate prepares a short summary of their previous professional activities and possibly presents their master thesis, publications, research results or abstracts from conferences they have attended.
      In the second part of the interview the candidate presents the scientific aim of their doctoral project.
      The committee assesses the candidate's motivation, current study and research results, along with the quality and feasibility of the project.
      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.
