The curriculum of the Political and Administrative Sciences course at University of Wroclaw takes into account the recommendations of the Bologna Seminar “Doctoral Programmes for the European Knowledge Society”.


By launching a new programme at the Doctoral College of Political and Administrative Sciences, we place particular emphasis on three of the recommendations we intend to implement:

  • the main component of curriculum involves the doctoral students in carrying out their own research,
  • the doctoral students are perceived as professionals who have a significant contribution to make in broadening knowledge,
  • the curriculum of doctoral studies assumes the promotion of mobility—in the international dimension, between the university and other entities and within the university between various disciplines.

Assumptions of the Political and Administrative Sciences course at University of Wroclaw 

  • Education at the Doctoral College of Political and Administrative Sciences will be provided in Polish or English.
  • The curriculum of the Doctoral College of Political and Administrative Sciences consists of three groups of subjects: OU – general university subjects (including classes in law, the ethics of scientific research and didactical methods at academic institutions; ZW – subjects provided within the scope of colleges at the Faculty of Social Sciences; NS – subjects offered to doctoral students under the auspices of the Doctoral College of Political and Administrative Sciences 
  • Doctoral students learn and study both within the scope of the organised classes and within the broader scientific community.
  • For the purpose of achieving the educational objectives, other obligations of a doctoral student are also envisaged, which will be included in the individual research plan prepared in agreement with supervisors and will specifically take into account the doctoral thesis preparation schedule and such elements as:  conducting scientific research and submitting reports on this research,
