      113. A graduate of a specialized doctoral program shall be engaged in scientific and pedagogical activities only in cases of mastering the cycle of pedagogical disciplines and teaching practice. This cycle shall be mastered during the additional academic period (if it is not provided for by the educational program of the doctoral program), after which it shall be issued a corresponding certificate to the basic diploma.

      114. A doctoral candidate who has completed the full course of theoretical studies of the doctoral program, but has not completed the RW (ERW), shall be given an opportunity to master the academic credits of the RW (ERW) once more and defend a thesis in subsequent years on a paid basis.
