The seminar aims at emphasizing and discussing the importance of the third cycle studies and quality assurance in new-style doctoral studies, since the high quality doctoral education is a key to strengthening research capacity and competitiveness of each country.


WUS Austria considers that there is a great need for more intensive promotion of the doctoral education among BiH academic community, having in mind that:

  1. the main aim of development of the third cycle education in line with the Bologna principles is the building of a knowledge/innovation-driven economy based on the need for a knowledge-based society in the broadest sense,
  2. the doctoral education has been part of the Bologna process from the 2003 Berlin Communiqué and it has been considered as an increasing priority ever since,
  3. BiH higher education institutions are still highly lagging behind their European counterparts when it comes to the development of the third cycle education, etc.


Seminar topics:

  • Introduction to the Latest Trends in the Third Cycle Studies in Europe
