Prior to enrolment, prospective PhD students may learn about the doctoral study programmes offered at the University of Zagreb through the University of Zagreb Guide to Doctoral Studies.
Candidates for enrolment in the doctoral study programme are selected from amongst applicants who meet the requirements prescribed by the Regulations on Doctoral Studies at the University of Zagreb and who satisfy the criteria set in the public call for the enrolment of PhD students.
Enrolment quotas are determined on the basis of the available research, teaching and supervision capacities.
Public calls for the enrolment of PhD students are announced at least one month prior to the beginning of classes, and the criteria of evaluation of applicants include their grade point average earned during their graduate study programme, interest expressed in scientific research, published papers, teacher and potential supervisor recommendations, and a proposed field of research.
Applicant interviews are an integral part of the enrolment process.
