Self-instruction as a form of training scientific workers of higher qualification for the first stage of postgraduate education stipulates that those who don't have a Master's degree, read for and take their doctoral examinations and oral tests in general sciences. The period of education, needed to be prepared to pass doctoral exams and oral tests and then do a postgraduate doctoral course either full-time or by correspondence, must not exceed 2 years.
