Objective: to regulate doctoral studies at the University of Tartu centrally with one single legislative act and to better distinguish doctoral studies from the organisation of the first and second level of higher education.
Current state: the act was prepared in parallel with general Study Regulations. The Study Regulations will henceforth mainly regulate studies at the first and second level of higher education.
