Basic information

The duration of the Interdisciplinary Doctoral Programme in Statistics is four years (240 ECTS credits), and according to the Bologna educational scheme this represents the third cycle of education. The programme consists of organised classes (60 credits) and individual research work for the doctoral dissertation (180 credits).

Interdisciplinary Doctoral Programme in Statistics is evaluated according to the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS), thus allowing students and lecturers to participate in international exchange schemes in the countries where ECTS or some other comparable system is implemented.

The doctoral programme results in the degree of doktor/doktorica znanosti (level of qualification: SQF level 10, EQF level 8, EQ-EHEA level Third cycle) and consists of seven programme modules:

  • Biostatistics
  • Statistics for Social Sciences
  • Mathematical Statistics
  • Economic and Official Statistics
  • Business Statistics
  • Psychological Statistics
  • Technical Statistics

The Interdisciplinary Doctoral Programme in Statistics is the only doctoral programme in Slovenia that educates highly qualified experts and researchers in the field of statistics. Statistics is used in practically all scientific fields. Statistical experts are an indispensable part of interdisciplinary research groups and are especially needed in institutions dealing with strategic and developmental issues of official statistics.

The programme is comparable with other similar programmes of foreign universities.
