Doctoral Regulations

The Doctoral Program of Political Science is regulated by CEU's Doctoral Regulation, and the Doctoral Regulations of the Doctoral School of Political Science, Public Policy and International Relations.

You can download the latest, updated versions of these documents by clicking on the links below. Information published on the Doctoral School's website serves informative purposes only. In case of any conflict in the published information, the Doctoral Regulation is the authorative document.

The Doctoral School also compiles a Handbook 2023/24* for first year PhD students every September, which contains the most important information about the program, including important dates and deadlines, people, and also regulations. Information about the comprehensive exam and the discretionary fund (stipend supplement) can also be found there.
