How to submit my documents?

You must submit your supporting documents by the deadline to which you are applying. Documents should be submitted as part of your application.

To find out which documents you need to provide in your application, see: Uchwała nr 22/2023 Senatu Uniwersytetu Jana Kochanowskiego w Kielcach z dnia 30 marca 2023 roku w sprawie zasad rekrutacji kandydatów do Szkoły Doktorskiej Uniwersytetu Jana Kochanowskiego w Kielcach w roku akademickim 2023/2024.

You are responsible for making sure that all required documents, including references, are submitted in time for the deadline and meet the University’s requirements. If your application is submitted late, and/or it is incomplete, it will not be assessed by the university admissions committee.

Check the documents you submit carefully. You cannot add revised versions once your application is ready for assessment.
