Doctoral studies do not necessarily demand previous education in social or government studies. While education in the subject field does make it easier, the main criteria for acceptance are the applicant’s explicit interest and the idea for the thesis. It is advisable to consult with the potential supervisor(s) when formulating the subject for the thesis.
Prospective applicants are advised to pass the masters studies programme first, when preparation in the studies of government and politics is inadequate. This is an individual choice, based on the idea for the doctoral thesis, the motivation of the applicant, time constraints and advice from the supervisor.
Internationally accredited PhD diploma allows you to work on positions requiring a PhD degree as managers and senior experts in Estonian, European Union and international institutions.
Admission exam (interview) is based on the plan for the doctoral thesis that is agreed with the prospective supervisor.
