Students who commenced their studies in 2012 must complete all the courses related to the program of their studies and pass a final Bachelor’s examination.

The Bachelor’s examination is a written examination consisting of open questions. It covers the following general topics:

The material on which this exam will be based will consist of the various problematic aspects discussed in different classes of their studies.

During their studies each undergraduate student must attend 90 hours of foreign language classes (students who started their studies before 2010 must complete a 60-hour-long foreign language course) as well as complete a 100-hour-long student internship (60 hours in the case of students who started their studies before 2010).

Postgraduate students will be awarded a Master’s degree in library and information science on the basis of their Masters’ theses and a final Master’s examination.

The studies consist of mandatory and elective courses. During their postgraduate studies students also choose their specialisation (which may vary from year to year and which may be one of the following: public and school libraries, editing, press in the system of social communication) and must attend courses related to it.
