Enrollment requirements differ between various institutions, but it is necessary to have a secondary school diploma.

Some universities also require motivation letters, personal essays and letters of recommendation. Professional schools may also organize additional tests or require a portfolio. Master degree (Magister) could be obtained after 2-2,5 years of studies.

PhD programs are intended for those who already have a Master (or equivalent) degree and plan to pursue a career in academia. In order to get a PhD, students have to pass an exam and defend a dissertation in front of academic commission in the university.
