Programme of the Doctoral School at the University of Wrocław

The Doctoral College of Security Sciences

 

The curriculum at the Doctoral College of Security Sciences considers recommendations of the Bologna Seminar “Doctoral Programmes for the European Knowledge Society”, which was held in 2005 in Salzburg at the initiative of the Austrian Federal Ministry of  Education,  Science  and  Research,  the  German  Federal Ministry of Education and Research and the European University Association. The recommendations and conclusions from the seminar are continuously promoted by the European University Association.

By launching a new programme at the Doctoral College of Security Sciences, we place particular emphasis on three of the recommendations we intend to implement:

 

Assumptions of the Doctoral College of Security Sciences programme

  1. Education at the Doctoral College of Security Sciences will be provided in Polish or English language.
  2. The curriculum of the Doctoral College of Security Sciences consists of three groups of subjects: 

The courses will be selected by the doctoral student and his/her doctoral thesis supervisor before the beginning of the semester in which the course is carried out with the exception of elective courses carried out in the first semester when the courses will be selected by the doctoral student and his/her proposed research supervisor.

  1. Doctoral students learn and study both within the scope of the organised classes and operating within the scientific community.
  2. For the purpose of achieving the education objectives, other obligations of a doctoral student are envisaged as well, which will be included in the individual research plan prepared in agreement with supervisors and considering specifically the doctoral thesis preparation schedule and such elements as: 
  1. Individual research plan will be presented by the doctoral student within 12 months from the date of starting the education to a three member Committee appointed by the head of the Doctoral College of Security Sciences from the members of the Council of Discipline competent for the security sciences.
  2. The doctoral student is required to participate in scientific events such as faculty seminars, institute seminars, scientific conferences, symposia, conventions and guest lectures, after agreeing to participate with the had of the Doctoral College and promoter.
  3. The achievement of the education effects can be also confirmed based on classes completed at other colleges of the Doctoral School of the University of Wrocław and at other universities both in Poland (e.g. within the scope of the MOST program) and abroad (e.g. within the scope of ERASMUS+ program).
  4. The doctoral student is required to complete a professional internship in the form of conducting didactical classes or participating in the classes conducted by a university teacher. 
  1. The doctoral student is required to be on consultation duty. The detailed rules of performance and level of the consultation duty is defined in separate regulations.
  2. The doctoral student is required to actively participate in the organisational work of the university and unit in which he received education within the scope of the Doctoral School.
  3. The doctoral student may in particular be required to participate in the preparation of organized conferences, symposia, convention and guest lectures and assistance in the performance of exams. Such an obligation should be imposed in consultation withe a doctoral student. 
  4. The education of the doctoral student is completed by the submission of his/her doctoral thesis.
