Double PhD Degree Is Available for Students Enrolled to the University of Nova Gorica

In cooperation with the University of Iuav (Università Iuav di Venezia, Venice), the Slovenian university plans to open a PhD programme, which will make it possible to obtain a double degree.

The programme on Economics and Technology of Architectural and Landscape Heritage Preservation will be opened in the new 2017/2018 academic year based on the signed agreement. The programme will be implemented in the premises of the Faculty of Postgraduate Education of the University of Nova Gorica and the School of Doctoral Studies of the University of Iuav in Venice (Università Iuav di Venezia).

Both educational institutions have long been closely cooperating. Since 2005, they have jointly implemented a one-year training programme for specialists in the protection, planning and management of cultural heritage. Besides, universities cooperate in exchanging PhD students, researchers and teachers.

The prospect of obtaining a double degree will improve the scientific, engineering and pedagogical proposal. Moreover, this opportunity will increase the prestige of studying on PhD programmes through the exchange of specialists and young researchers.

In order to obtain a double degree, it is necessary to fulfil the academic obligations in your primary university and pass qualifying exams in the university-partner. Defense of the thesis will take place in front of a joint commission of two universities.

Upon admission to PhD studies, students must document their knowledge of English and provide a motivation letter.
