Entrance examinations

 
 
I.                  Organisation of, and requirements for the entrance examination
The entrance examination is held in one round and is taken orally. The examination is essentially taken in the Czech or Slovak language; where an applicant intends to be admitted to the English programme of study the entrance examination is taken in English. The purpose of the entrance examination is to assess primarily the relevant academic knowledge of an applicant, as well as his or her initial capability of carrying out autonomous scientific activities and research within the selected programme of study.
·                   The maximum total score to reach at the entrance examination is 60 points. The overall number of points achieved by an applicant is composed of the number of points reached within individual parts of the entrance examination. The range of points in individual parts of the entrance examination is as follows: 
a.       Debate over the presented project of a dissertation (0 -20 points);
b.      Bonus points awarded for an applicant´s understanding of the content of study regarding (a) his or her plan to be involved in scientific projects and research of the expected training unit (e.g. academic department), and in international research cooperation; (b) linking his or her dissertation topic and outline with the research profile of his or her doctoral student training unit; (c) consent of a selected  supervisor to supervise the applicant´s project of the intended dissertation (0-10 points).
c.       Assessment of the recent academic and research activities of an applicant (0-10 points).
d.      Proving the knowledge resulting from studying relevant scientific literature and the academic knowledge within the scope of the final state examination in the respective subject field taken during the master´s programme of study; in case of a subject not included in the final state examination, proving the knowledge within the scope set for regular advancement examinations during the master´s programme. An applicant for study in the English language should show his or her knowledge of the respective literature and the knowledge relevant for a wider context of his or her dissertation project (0-20 points).
·                     The minimum overall number of points for an applicant to attain at the entrance examination in order to be admitted to study is 40 points.
Not later than within 30 days from the entrance examination, the Dean will issue a decision regarding admission or non-admission of the applicant to the doctoral programme of study. The Faculty will deliver the decision by restricted delivery (to the applicant´s own hands) via a licensed operator of postal services. The decision to admit an applicant to the doctoral program of study may be sent to the applicant via the electronic Student Information System if the applicant had expressed consent with such delivery in the electronic application for admission.
 
II.                  Dates of examination
Regular date:                    5 June 2019
Alternative date:             18 June 2019
 
The Dean may grant an opportunity to sit for an examination on the alternative date to an applicant who has so applied no later than three days after the regular date of examination, provided that the applicant was not able to take part in the regular examination for serious and substantiated reasons, mainly health reasons. Regular study abroad as preparation for study at a higher education institution is considered a justified reason for granting an alternative date. No further alternative date is permissible. The applications for the alternative date are filed and disposed of through the electronic Student Information System of the University (Article 14 (6) of the Code of Admissions Procedure of Charles University.
