• Bibliography (appending an extract from COBISS; foreign candidates must submit an edited list of the candidate's published scientific and professional works if the bibliographic database is not available)
• Certificate of knowledge of the Slovenian language
• B2 Level English Language Proficiency Certificate
• Notarized certificate of graduation at the undergraduate level, which shows the field of the undergraduate study
Aliens (candidates who are not citizens of an EU country) or Slovenians without Slovenian citizenship must enroll in compliance with the Rules on the call for enrolment and enrolment in higher education and the Rules on studies pursued by aliens and Slovenian nationals without Slovenian citizenship in the Republic of Slovenia. For the enrolment in doctoral study programs, the same rules apply to aliens as well as Slovenian citizens, as long as aliens completed an equivalent education abroad.
The equivalence of prior education is determined in the process of the recognition of foreign education for continuing education in the Republic of Slovenia.
Before enrolling, the candidate selects a supervisor and submits their written consent to mentorship and a list of three scientific publications from the area of the candidate's doctoral dissertation topic. The supervisor must have a valid higher education title (Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, Professor) or a scientific title (Research Fellow, Senior Research Fellow or Research Counsellor) and has demonstrated research activity with relevant academic bibliography in the field of the doctoral dissertation topic (at least three scientific references of the 1.01, 1.02, 2.01 types over the past five years). A minimum requirement to meet the research activity conditions for the supervisor is that the supervisor meets the conditions for a project leader on basic or applied projects under the Slovenian Research Agency policy, which means having obtained 100 points according to the Slovenian Current Research Information System (SICRIS) over the past five years and evidence of having successfully transferred project results into practice. The supervisor must have teaching experience with the concluding works, i.e. at least as supervisor, co-supervisor, reviewer of master's theses at the second-cycle Bologna level or as supervisor, co-supervisor, or reviewer of a scientific master's degree in the education system before the Bologna reform. The supervisor is finally nominated during the process of registration and acquiring consent for the doctoral dissertation topic.
In the event of limited enrolment, the candidates will be selected based on:
a) Performance in the last completed study
b) Achievements such as:
• Published scientific article or an article accepted for publishing in a peer-reviewed journal
• Awards and recognitions
In the event of limited enrolment, we will select the candidates that achieve the best score.
