Requirements for enrolment into the 1st year of a master study programme are the following:

  • completed 1st-cycle study programme in natural sciences, technical disciplines, or computer science equivalent to at least 180 ECTS,
  • completed higher education study in these fields comprising at least three years of lectures.

Candidates must also be proficient in English, which they can prove by language proficiency certificates.

Other requirements:


Eligible for enrolment in the first academic year of second-level study programmes are candidates who have graduated in the first-level study programmes in natural sciences, technical disciplines or computer science earning at least 180 credit points, or have completed higher education studies in these fields comprising at least three years of lectures. Candidates must also be proficient in English, which they can prove by language proficiency certificates.

Graduates from first-level study programmes in other disciplines, totalling 180 credit points, should address their applications to the IPS Study Commission, which defines study obligations to be met by candidates before enrolment in the first academic year. These obligations are defined from the teaching modules of the first-level study programme depending on the dissimilarity of the disciplines concerned, and total between 10 and 60 credit points. Candidates can fulfil these obligations either during their first-level degree studies, through advanced training programmes or by passing the relevant exams before enrolment in the master’s degree study programme.

Candidates who have completed first-level undergraduate study programmes, totalling 240 KT, in natural sciences, technical disciplines or computer science may enrol in the second academic year of the second-level studies and will be given recognition for 60 credit points worth of study obligations. On enrolment, their compulsory exams earning 18 to 21 credit points will be individually determined so that they can obtain knowledge and skills complementary to their previous studies.

Anticipated number of available places for each year of studies:

  • Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies: 15
  • Information and Communication Technologies: 15
  • Ecotechnology: 15

In the case of limited admission the Study Commission shall prepare the list of accepted candidates on the basis of the following criteria:

  • achievement in undergraduate studies,
  • achievement in optional exam, including the evaluation of eventual prizes and awards, for employed candidates: work experience and recommendations of employers, bibliography of published and accomplished works.

We will inform the candidates of the results of enrolment via e-mail within 8 days after each enrolment deadline.
