e.) a study program designed to provide specialization, having previously completed a professional college study program in an appropriate field. These candidates will have to complete additional study requirements in specific fields, worth 30-60 ECTS credits.
All candidates who meet the criteria under a-d and have previously obtained education in the fields of social sciences or humanities, must have work experience in public health issues, must work in healthcare teams or be part of teams working in the field of health of the society.
All candidates must provide proof of having published relevant papers in their professional field and must be able to use study materials in the English language.
Foreigners (candidates who are not citizens of a member state of the European Union) or Slovenian nationals without Slovenian citizenship can enrol, on the condition that they meet the general requirements, in accordance with the provisions of the Rules on the call for enrolment and enrolment in higher education and Rules on studies pursued by aliens and Slovenian nationals without Slovenian citizenship in the Republic of Slovenia. Foreigners can apply into doctoral programs under the same conditions that apply to Slovenian citizens, provided they had obtained equivalent education abroad.
The equivalence of education previously obtained in countries other than Slovenia will be determined in the education recognition procedure for the purpose of continuing education in the Republic of Slovenia.
Before enrolling, a candidate must select a supervisor and, no later than at the time of enrolment, submit their written consent to being a supervisor and a list of their three scientific publications in the field covering the topic of the candidate’s proposed doctoral dissertation. The supervisor or co-supervisor of the doctoral dissertation must be a higher education teacher (assistant professor, professor or associate professor) or a research faculty member (research fellow, senior research fellow or research counsellor), with evidence of research activity and adequate scientific bibliography from the area of the topic of the proposed doctoral dissertation. A minimum requirement to meet the research activity conditions for the supervisor is, over the past five years, 100 points according to the Slovenian Current Research Information System (SICRIS) for basic research with bibliography and 40 points for applied research, with evidence of having successfully transferred project results into practice. The supervisor will be definitively appointed in the process of submitting and obtaining consent for the topic of the doctoral dissertation.
A supervisor can also be a specialist from an international institution holding a title comparable to the teaching and research titles at ABFHC. In this case, the ABFHC appoints a co-supervisor.
In case the program is oversubscribed (there are more candidates than available places), the candidates will be selected according to:
a) mean grade obtained during the last study program completed
b) candidates will also be selected according to achievements such as:
• published or forthcoming scientific article in a review journal
• awards and recognitions
In case the program is oversubscribed, candidates with higher total points will be selected.
Candidates must submit proof of meeting enrolment requirements or filled out enrolment form together with all attachments by registered mail or deliver them personally to ABFHC, Ob železnici 30a, 1000 Ljubljana, Slovenia during open rounds of applications.
