Colloquia (MMEE)

According to the PhD Student Standard, the obligations are as follows:

  • At the end of the first year a successful presentation of the dissertation research at the department colloquium,
  • At the end of the second year a successful presentation of the dissertation research at the faculty (FBA) colloquium.

For ANNOUNCED COLLOQUIA, SEE HERE

For the department colloquium (for Template, see below) the student should have a completed research for bibliography (approx. 80 most relevant sources and books, predominantly journals published in the last five years). Research means a completed literature review, which gives rise to research questions. The research questions are formulated on the basis of an overview of the existing state of knowledge in the field of dissertation, defining the added value that the dissertation should bring, both for scientific knowledge in the world context and for practice and a concept of your empirical research – research data groups design, data acquisition methods, data evaluation methods. The colloquium will provide recommendations for further processing of the dissertation.

For the faculty colloquium (for Template, see below) you present a complete theoretical part of your thesis, finalised method design (with piloted data sample) and schedule of data collection and completion of your dissertation. The colloquium will provide recommendations for further processing of the dissertation.
