  • All applicants, whose application will not be excluded by the admission committee due to formal deficiencies, will be invited for the admission interview. The admission interview can take place in justified cases with the use of electronic communication technologies. In that case, however, the applicant bears the risks associated with the evaluation due to the poor quality of the connection. The applications of candidates who don´t appear for the interview without excuse will be excluded from the admission procedure. Applicants, who are unable to attend the interview, apologize in time and the excuse is accepted by the Dean, will be assessed by the admission committee in their absence based on the supplied materials.
  • The applicant must demonstrate a sufficiently wide base of general knowledge in animal biology, fisheries, and water ecology during the admission interview. Knowledge of basic fishery literature with a clear idea of the topic of his/her PhD thesis and the ways of dealing with the given issues, plus a strong interest in scientific work are expected. An integral part of the admission interview is verification of the ability to communicate in the English language.
  • The admission committee assigns 0-10 points to the applicant on the basis of the oral interview. Another 0-20 points will be assigned to the applicant on the basis of information about previous education, experience, publication and pedagogical activity etc. In this evaluation, the committee of the admission procedure will also take into account the position of the head of the relevant organizational unit of the faculty, where the student is going to work. The evaluation itself will be created by the average of the points proposed by the present members of the committee, rounded to two decimal places. Applicants, who do not receive more than 15 points, cannot be admitted to study.
  • If more than one applicant is assigned to the topic of the dissertation, the candidate who receives the highest score will be accepted. In the case of the same number of points, the lot decides about the selected applicant. If one candidate is assigned to a given topic and he/she obtains at least 15 points from the admission committee, he/she will be accepted for study after the other conditions are fulfilled. Applicants who gain more than 15 points, but the topic of the PhD thesis they have applied for will be filled by an applicant with a higher number of points, will be offered the opportunity to accept free topics of the PhD thesis if their supervisors are interested. Offering topics of vacant dissertations will be done according to the instructions of supervisors who issue them.
