State Rigorous Exam
You can take a state rigorous exam if you have completed a Master’s degree study programme. Part of the exam is the defence of the rigorous thesis work. This work must contain original processing of the field of study or original research results in the given field, at a level corresponding to the publishing standard in that field. After the rigorous thesis defence, you will receive a diploma and an academic title of PhDr., RNDr., JUDr., or other. The title is written before the name and reflects the field of study in which the thesis was defended. The system of preparation and the conditions for rigorous examinations are determined by the faculties.
Applications are accepted throughout the year. For the rigorous proceedings held in the spring semester, the applications must be submitted by 31 January at the latest; for the autumn semester, by 31 August.
