Doctoral School UO

Doctoral School is a new tool of the UO which represents innovative supportive educational system for students of doctoral study programmes accredited at the UO. The aim is to develop mostly general skills and competencies required from doctoral students using networking and sharing of good practice.

During the academic year, students may sign up for many interesting courses. The following pilot courses are taking place:

Academic English
Academic Writing
Scientrometrics: Publication strategies and supportive IT tools in science
Increasing of Pedagogical Skills
Methodology of Qualitative Research
Methodology of Quantitative Research

The courses are led by experienced academics from the UO, from other universities and scientific institutes. The language of instruction is either Czech or English and students may gain credits in case of their successful completion.

There is a wide range of support services to the courses: Centre for International Cooperation, Couseling and Career Centre and Pyramida Centre - for students with needs, University Library and University Bookstore, etc.

Within the Doctoral School UO an annual event “Welcome Day for Doctoral Students” is organized, always at the beginning of a new academic year.

All necessary information about the study subjects including a list of possibilities for doctoral students to be involved in research at the UO, information about scholarship and grant programmes, can be found in MOODLE in a course called Doktorská škola / Doctoral School.
