Graduate and Doctoral studies programs are the key programs for training researchers and teachers for the universities, Academy of Sciences, and industrial R&D institutes. About 150--160 best graduates of the Faculty of Physics and other candidates from Russia and Belarus who have the diploma of "specialist" or "master" join annually the PhD studies program at the faculty. A few people who hold the PhD degree join annually the Dr. Sc. studies program.

PhD and Dr.Sc. students work on their theisis under individual programs composed together with their scientific advisors.

Under the PhD studies program, the students have to pass exams on Philosophy, foreign language, and their specialization. They have to prepare and submit to one of the Faculty's councils for defence their PhD thesis.

Up to 65--70% of our PhD studies program graduates defend their PhD thesis within one year after the graduation.
