Annual registration

​All doctoral candidates must register each academic year.

Academic year begins August 1 and it is divided into two semesters: autumn (begins on 1st August and ends on 31st December) and spring (begins on 1st January and ends on 31 July). Candidates can register as attending or non-attending.

As an attending doctoral candidate, you have the right to take part in examinations, have the credits entered to the Study Register, or receive the examination certificate from the faculty.

As a non-attending doctoral candidate, you may not pursue studies or have credits, but you remain as a registered doctoral candidate.
