II. THREE MASTER DEGREE STUDY PROGRAMMES :

1.    NANOSCIENCES AND NANOTECHNOLOGIES

2.    INFORMATION AND COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGIES

3.    ECOTECHNOLOGY



Enrolment Requirements:


Eligible for enrolment in the first academic year of second-level study programmes are candidates who have graduated in the first-level study programmes in natural sciences, technical disciplines or computer science earning at least 180 credit points, or have completed higher education studies in these fields comprising at least three years of lectures. Candidates must also be proficient in English, which they can prove by language proficiency certificates.

Graduates from first-level study programmes in other disciplines, totalling 180 credit points, should address their applications to the IPS Study Commission, which defines study obligations to be met by candidates before enrolment in the first academic year. These obligations are defined from the teaching modules of the first-level study programme depending on the dissimilarity of the disciplines concerned, and total between 10 and 60 credit points. Candidates can fulfil these obligations either during their first-level degree studies, through advanced training programmes or by passing the relevant exams before enrolment in the master’s degree study programme.

Candidates who have completed first-level undergraduate study programmes, totalling 240 KT, in natural sciences, technical disciplines or computer science may enrol in the second academic year of the second-level studies and will be given recognition for 60 credit points worth of study obligations. On enrolment, their compulsory exams earning 18 to 21 credit points will be individually determined so that they can obtain knowledge and skills complementary to their previous studies.
Other candidates that acquired more than 180 credit points during their undergraduate studies, specialist studies or in some other forms of education can address a request to the IPS Study Commission, which will discuss each case separately and determine the number of recognized second level study obligations  (60 credit points to the maximum).
In the case of limited admission the Study Commission shall prepare the list of accepted candidates on the basis of the following criteria: Achievements in first-level undergraduate studies, eventual work experience and other study or research achievements, prizes and awards stated in the CV and letter of motivation for studies.
