Admission information for doctoral studies - students from EU, EEA and Swiss Confederation Citizens
Language of studies
Candidates who do not speak Romanian can apply for studies in Romanian provided they take a preparatory language course one year before enrolment. At the end of the preparatory year, the candidates will acquire a Romanian language certificate. In case the candidate already has knowledge of Romanian language, they can take the Romanian language test at the Faculty of Letters and get a language certificate. Romanian language certificates will be accepted only from the Romanian Language Institute or Romanian universities accredited to issue such certificates.
The Romanian language test fee is 250 RON (about 45 EUR), subject to alterations.
Candidates choosing specialisations taught in English will have to pass an interview before the entrance exam depending on the faculty chosen by the candidate.
Dates for the language exams for the July session will be settled and announced on time.
Every year, the Senate of the university with the approval of the Ministry of National Education decides on the number of available places. The number of available places is published on the doctoral school webpage.
The University of Oradea has implemented the Bologna system since 2005. Usually, there are two admission sessions: in July and in September.
