Mission and objectives

The Doctoral School represents an academic institutional structure, invested with responsibility in the administrative organization of carrying out doctoral studies at ”1 Decembrie 1918” University of Alba Iulia, including tasks in the management of the activity of PhD students and in the promotion of research activity specific to this academic study cycle.

 The Doctoral School aims to promote and achieve excellence in fundamental and applied research, aimed at increasing the quality of university training, as well as concluding partnerships in interdisciplinary research activities, at national and international level.

 Given that a doctorate imposes the rigor, often ascetic, of research work, and the doctorate is itself a rigorous initiation, which does not suit everyone and to which not all resist, the members of the Doctoral School, the professors, and doctoral students, understand that the doctorate represents the supreme institutional form of professional consecration. Consequently, the only evaluation criteria will be the scientific value of the approach, the originality of the thesis, as well as the seriousness, scientific and academic integrity of the doctoral student.
