University of Ljubljana Call for enrolment into Doctoral degree programmes 2018/2019

Call for enrolment into doctoral programmes of the University of Ljubljana for the 2018/2019 academic year

The University of Ljubljana calls for 21 doctoral programmes - www.uni-lj.si/study/doctoral. In addition to the general part of the Call, published in the introduction there is an indication next to each doctoral programme of the members carrying out the programme and of the deadline for applying to the study programme. Please note that the deadline set also applies to candidates who intend to enrol in doctoral programmes under criteria for transfers.

Pursuant to Article 13 of the Rules on PhD studies at the University of Ljubljana, a candidate is obliged to “make arrangements with a professor or research fellow for mentorship/co-mentorship until the expiry of the deadline for application to the Call for enrolment and submit their consent on mentorship/co-mentorship, along with a brief concept of research work.”

 

GENERAL PART OF THE CALL

 

a) Application for enrolment

Candidates are required to submit their application for enrolment in a doctoral programme at the University of Ljubljana electronically via the eVŠ web portal, where they can also find detailed instructions for completing the application form.

Candidates submit their application for enrolment using an electronic application form on the eVŠ web portal. Each candidate may submit several applications for different study programmes, i.e.:

1) with a qualified digital certificate , the printed application form for enrolment is not sent by mail, but is submitted to eVŠ before the expiry of the application deadline. During that period, a candidate is required to send the attachments to the enrolment application required in the Call (an attachment must contain a reference to the number of the application for enrolment in the chosen study programme) by registered mail to the address of the member faculty providing the study programme. The address for the attachments is published below, next to individual doctoral programmes;

2) without a qualified digital certificate (with a user name and password), the application form for enrolment is to be sent electronically to eVŠ. It should be printed, signed and sent by registered mail together with the attachments required in the Call. It should be sent to the member faculty providing the study programme, or to the address published in the continuation of the Call next to each doctoral programme, before the application deadline.

An application is considered timely if:

1) it is completed and submitted with an electronic signature to eVŠ before the expiry of the application deadline and

2) it is completed in eVŠ, printed in the same wording as in the last form submitted to eVŠ, signed and sent by registered mail to the member faculty providing the study programme before the expiry of the application deadline.

For any content-related questions in respect of the Call for enrolment, candidates may contact the competent student offices at the addresses published next to each doctoral programme.

Eligible to apply are all candidates seeking to study at a doctoral study programme of the University of Ljubljana, regardless of whether they have already graduated or not at the time of application submission. Graduation is not a requirement for application, but is a requirement for enrolment in a study programme. In such case, candidates send documents supporting their completion of studies and a certificate of average grade within the period set by the relevant member faculty.

Irrespective of the method of application, a candidate is required to send attachments to the enrolment application on time by registered mail or deliver them in person pursuant to the Call, i.e. to the member faculty carrying out the study programme to which the candidate has applied. The address for the attachments is published below next to individual doctoral programmes.

WARNING:

Only applications for the recognition of foreign education that arrive in due time and in the prescribed form (electronic application form submitted using a digital certificate, while electronic application form without a digital signature is considered only if it has been submitted in paper form with the applicant’s signature in manuscript) will be taken into account in procedures.

Detailed explanations on enrolment terms (compliance of prior education and other terms) and any further information are available to candidates at the University of Ljubljana higher education institutions holding the doctoral programmes.

Candidates are to take special note of the requirement to complete any necessary additional obligations before enrolment in a study programme (pursuant to the terms and conditions of enrolment as laid down next to the published doctoral programme).

d) Applications for enrolment in second and third study years

Students can apply for enrolment in the second and third study year of a doctoral programme at the University of Ljubljana as per the Criteria for transfers between programmes. The option is also open to candidates who failed to compete their studies in previous postgraduate or doctoral programmes.

Candidates may receive further information on the terms and procedures for enrolment as per the Transfer Criteria at an individual member faculty holding the doctoral programme. Contact addresses are indicated under each study programme in the Call. Information on the terms for transfer between programmes is part of study programmes, which are published on the websites of UL members and the UL website in full or as a yearbook.
