About PhD at University of New York in Prague

The University of New York in Prague cooperates with the University of Bolton to offer doctorate degrees in the form of a Ph.D. by publication.

What is a Ph.D. by publication?

A Ph.D. by publication is similar to a conventional Ph.D., but recognizes research work carried out by entrepreneurial companies and academic organizations that lead to novel and publishable results.

A UNYP Ph.D. by publication usually requires a minimum of three years, during which time there should be three publications, in literature approved by the University of Bolton. These publications should be in relation to the student's thesis and area of expertise, and should develop the student’s knowledge of the subject. The award of this Ph.D. is based purely on these three published works, and as such rewards on-going activities rather than additional work.

The Ph.D. by publication is different from any other Ph.D. variation because it is based on works to be published. Publications can include papers in high impact factor journals or full international patents, and as a result this type of doctorate is extremely versatile, and can be applied to all aspects of enterprise, from business and science, through to the arts.

Students in the UNYP Ph.D. program must submit a thesis in English, and provide an oral defense of the new knowledge (philosophy) that has been generated.

Entry requirements

Please note that international students from outside the EU, EEA and Switzerland will need a visa or residence permit to study in the Czech Republic.

Students of programs accredited by the Czech Ministry of Education can apply for either for a long-term study visa or a long term residence permit for study.

Both types of visa are issued with the validity of up to 1 year.

The supporting documentation must show that you have funds in your bank account, accommodation and health insurance secured for the entire period (12 months)

The waiting period for the visa or permit is usually 2-3 months. Either document can be extended in the Czech Republic shortly before expiration.

Study abroad students and exchange students who are coming for a single semester should apply for the long term visa.

Students of programs that are not accredited by the Czech Ministry of Education are required to apply for a long term visa for other purposes (with “Education” specified in the long term visa application form). This is not a study visa, but an “educational” visa granted for up to 12 months with the possibility to be extended in the Czech Republic.
