Aim of studies
Studies in the Doctoral Study programme (DSP) are intended for university graduates who completed their studies with a required state examination in a field ensued by the DSP or in a field closely related. The basic aim of the DSP is to obtain and demonstrate the ability of independent research work in a particular scientific field by carrying out and defending candidate’s doctoral dissertation, publications and other forms of presenting own scientific-research activities, including completing all required exams and the State Doctoral Exam. The DSP graduates receive an academic- scientific title “Doctor” (abbreviated as Ph.D. behind the name). Students are enrolled into the studies on the basis of a positive result of entrance examination.
Length of studies
The standard length of the studies for currently accredited doctoral study programmes at the FEM CULS in Prague is 4 years.
Forms of studies
The studies are organised in two forms – present-day and distance. The present-day study form is the main form of the doctoral studies and also main employment of the Ph.D. candidate. Students in the present-day form have the status of university students and in the course of their studies they are monthly paid a doctoral scholarship. The distance form is the form of studies intended for working graduates or the members of faculty staff who during the studies remain in their occupations.
