The Institute of Economic Studies at the Faculty of Social Sciences offers two Ph.D. programmes in Economics, with and without a tuition fee. Applicants for both programmes need to have completed master degree, interest in economic research and advanced knowledge of English and mathematics.
There is no mandatory entrance exam as a part of the admission process to the Program with a tuition. The admission committee will decide on the basis of obtained documents and can ask for supplying more of them if necessary.
However, the entrance exams are required for those applying for the option without a tuition fee. The entrance exams consist of two parts (a written test and an interview with an examination committee) completed in one day.
