Knowledge to conquer the sky

Postgraduate and doctorate center

Postgraduate and doctorate center

     Postgraduate center of the university was opened in 1930 and doctorate - in 1962. During that time postgraduate center has trained more than 1,100 candidates and 105 doctors of science, including well-known scholars in the field of physics, mathematics, technical, historical and philosophical sciences.
     Postgraduate centre trains science and educational professionals with full-time and part-time study, whereas doctorate center trains with full-time education.
    
     Training in the postgraduate and doctorate center is supported by:
     1) the state budget of Ukraine - on the state contract for work in the public sector of the national economy;
    2) the funds of legal entities and individuals - in terms of the contract - for work in the public and non-governmental sectors of the national economy;
    3) foreigners and stateless persons on the basis of:
         - International agreements of Ukraine;
         - International programs;
         - Contracts concluded by the University and legal entities and individuals.
 

List of documents for admission to postgraduate and doctorate center

     Students who enter the postgraduate center (from 01.02 to 01.04) or doctorate (within a year) apply the following documents to the Rector’s office:

    - application;
    - personal profile;
    - list of published scientific works and inventions. Candidates for postgraduate studies, who didn’t  publish scientific papers and inventions, apply research abstracts in their major;
    - medical certificate 086-y form;
    - copy of the Specialist or Master degree or its equivalent (individuals who have received appropriate training abroad should have a copy of the nostrificated diploma);
    - a certificate about the candidate examinations (if  Ph.D. exams are passed).
 

Those who join the doctorate program in addition should apply:

    - detailed plan of the dissertation;
    - copies of  Ph.D., associate professor or senior researcher diplomas (in case of a appropriate education abroad - copies of nostrificated diplomas).
 
      The term of training in the postgraduate centre with full time study is no more than three years, part-time - four years; doctoral studies - three years.
     In some cases, the Academic Council of the university may establish a period of study in postgraduate or doctoral course differentially - one to three years depending on the level of scientific developments and the readiness of the thesis.
     Independent work on  dissertation for Candidate of PhD degree is carried out  by applicants who are working on dissertations beyond graduate school and have specialist or master qualification.
 
     Foreigners and stateless persons may be applicants on the basis of:
       - international agreements of Ukraine;
       - national programs;
       - contracts concluded by the University and legal entities and individuals.

For applying to the university with the aim of writing dissertation applicant submits (during a year) the following documents:

     -  an application  entiteled to the Rector;
     - a copy of the diploma in specialist or master degree
     - a list of published scientific works and inventions;
     - an excerpt from the decision of the Academic Council of the university, research organization which runs the thesis.
 
The study period of applicants should not exceed five years.

         PhDs who have completed at least two-thirds of their dissertation can work as part of research staff to complete the paper for up to two years. They apply to the Rector during a year:
         - application indicating the required period of time as researcher;
         - a detailed plan of PhD thesis;
         - schedule for its implementation;
         - the list of published scientific works and inventions.
