Mobility of Doctoral Students
The PhD Program Manager directs the process of transferring students from various academic institutions.
Stage One – Getting Permission to be transferred to UG:
A doctoral student writes an application to The PhD Program Manager, where there is indicated, from which university the student is wishing to be transferred to a UG doctoral program.
The PhD Program Manager addresses the Rector and introduces the student’s application. Then there shall be appointed the day of discussion of this topic, on which the doctoral student ought to present a formal application of the doctoral work to the Dissertation Cuncil of the corresponding school and to acquaint the audience with the volume of the work, already performed by him/her. If the Dissertation Council believes that the doctoral student’s formal application, presentation and credits (which he/she has accumulated in the university where one’s doctoral program began) are satisfactory, the doctoral student shall be given the right to get transferred to the appropriate program. The following information should be envisaged: To be transferred to the UG doctoral program, the candidate must have 60 credits out of the overall 180 doctoral credits left to be done. This means that at most 120 credits accumulated while studying on the PhD program at another academic institution will be considered to have been obtained by the PhD candidate.
Depending on the amount of work to be still performed, the committee shall determine the terms of studying: half a year, one year, two years.
Stage Two – registering for the Program and Concluding an Agreement:
After getting the permission, the applicant registers for the program and concludes an agreement with the university.
Stage Three – Preparatory Period:
Selection of the consultant-supervisor, adjustment of the dissertation title, etc. When the preparatory period is over (in two months) the program shall start.
