The postgraduate study is completed by passing all the examinations, composing the final paper and/or passing the appropriate final examination according to the study program. Persons who complete the specialized studies acquire a title according to the Law on Academic and Professional Titles and Academic Degrees and the List of academic titles and degrees and their abbreviations of the Rectors’ Conference.
