The programme consists of two main groups of courses:
- basic courses (T),
- optional courses (I).
Basic courses comprise 10 ECTS; optional courses comprise 5 or 10 ECTS.
Basic and optional courses are divided into two subgroups, i.e. general courses (S), which are related by content to all three research fields of the doctoral study Textile Engineering, Graphic Communication and Textile Design, and discipline-specific courses (P), which include the content specific courses for a particular research field.
In cooperation with the mentor and research field coordinator, the student selects courses from the set of basic courses (20 ECTS) and optional courses (25 ECTS). In order to secure the research field, the student shall accumulate a minimum of 20 ECTS from discipline specific courses, of which a minimum of 10 ECTS from basic discipline-specific courses and 10 ECTS from optional discipline-specific courses. The selection can be made from among the set of courses of all scientific areas.
In cooperation with the mentor and research field coordinator, the student is able to accumulate 10 ECTS from the curriculum of other comparable programmes of Slovenian and foreign universities that have programmes that are evaluated by the ECTS system or other systems that enable the comparison of evaluation (generic skills).
Course Work organisation and procedures in science (UL, Faculty of Architecture) is obligatory for students in the field of textile design.
