Doctoral School

Doctoral studies are third-cycle university studies, the main goal of which is to prepare future researchers, who could further delve into the desired field of science, be able to carry out research and projects of various scales and solve emerging scientific problems. After defending a doctoral dissertation and obtaining a doctoral degree, a person acquires the most advanced research work and professional knowledge, is ready to apply them and use them to develop new ideas or processes in academic and non-academic environments.

One of the main goals of Mykolas Romeris University is to ensure that doctoral studies are of high quality, follow the latest scientific trends and knowledge, and meet the international level. The University organizes various conferences on topical issues, provides opportunities to take part in internships at foreign universities and participate in joint research projects. MRU doctoral students are also actively involved in submitting project applications and implementing projects. Currently, 12 doctoral students are working on projects.

MRU, ensuring mobility of doctoral students, as well as internationality, and cooperation in the European Research Area, was the first in Lithuania to join European (Germany‘s, Italy‘s, Spain‘s, Portugal‘s, France‘s,) universities, issuing European doctoral certificates. From the end of 2019 MRU doctoral students can obtain a European Doctor (Doctor Europaeus) certificate. It is a document attesting to the internationality of doctoral studies, which is issued together with a doctoral diploma.

At Mykolas Romeris University it is possible to choose doctoral studies in 6 disciplines: law, management, economics, psychology, educational sciences or philology. The length of doctoral studies depends on the selected doctoral studies form. It is possible to select full-time studies – 4 years or part-time studies – 6 years and receive a doctoral degree externally.
