  2. Applicants' professional competence for master's studies is assessed on the basis of the content and results of previous studies at the first stage of higher education, which are supported by relevant documents and on the results of the entrance examination if not done on the basis of submitted documents of the applicant's previous studies.

Additional conditions for admission to master's studies carried out at FIIT STU were approved by the Academic Senate of the Faculty on March 30, 2021.
