Doctoral students of the Faculty of Natural Sciences of Comenius University are integral members of the university elite who carry with them prestige and considerable responsibilities. During their studies they develop scientific thinking, enhance their scientific overview, gain the ability to pass on their acquired knowledge to all generations.
PhD programmes generally last four years of full-time study and students are expected to submit a thesis within this period. In the first year, students normally devote themselves to identifying a topic and surveying as much pertinent literature as possible to prove the originality of their research. Here, they will have guidance from their academic supervisor. The second and third years are spent on the work required to test their hypotheses and to formulate specific conclusions. Most of the final year of the Ph.D study is spent on writing up the thesis.
