      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.
      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 admission interview includes a brief (max. 5 minutes) presentation in English. During this presentation, the applicant discusses their future doctoral project or at least the general ideas about their doctoral activities and specialization. The applicant may also talk about their master studies or other professional experience. The presentation is done without a PowerPoint or other material prepared in advance. The committee then asks follow-up questions.

      The examination is graded with a maximum of 100 points, of which 10 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 6th January 2023, 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.
