Bridging studies are paid studies for persons intending to enter a master’s degree, during which those first cycle (bachelor’s) study subjects are studied, which are necessary for the student to have sufficient knowledge and skills necessary for successful master’s studies. Bridging studies are intended for graduates of:
1. College studies in the same field of study;
2. University studies in another field of study.
Studies usually last up to 1 year. Graduates are issued a certificate of completion of these studies. Upon admission to master’s studies, the assessments of study subjects listed in the certificate of completion of Bridging studies are included in the competitive score for both state-funded and non-state-funded study places.
