    Foreign students are enrolled in the program without admission examination, above the set number of Romanian students approved. Generally, foreign students are enrolled in university and post-academic programs after completing the preparatory year of Romanian language study.

After completion of the preparatory year you will hold a test which confers a Certificate of Graduation of the Preparatory Year. For registration in faculties where teaching is held in a foreign language, you will have to pass a test in that specific language. Persons who are from a country having the official language the language of study and have taken courses previously in the same language, are exempted from the test. Applicants who studied in their country for a period of 4 years in Romanian language, are exempt from the language test and the preparatory year. Also, applicants who speak Romanian and are able to hold the language test without the preparatory year may do so.

    Foreign citizens who intend to study architecture, arts or sports must hold an aptitude test specific to their specialization, prior to enrollment.

    For Ph.D. programs, applicants must hold a pre-examination to determine their level of knowledge in the field. The exam can be held at the higher education institution chosen by the applicant. Foreign citizens can cover study expenses through Romanian Government scholarships or through their own financing.

    Faculty of Theology

    General Presentation

    The Faculty of Orthodox Theology as part of the University of Oradea was instituted in March 1991 and carries on the activity of the former theological Academy in Oradea, founded on May 29, 1923. The appearance, soon after the 1989 events, of this faculty within a lay University meant not only the insurance of diversity that was to define such an institution of higher education but also a comeback of Christian spirituality in the general framework of the University. The priority of the educational curriculum is to mould the future congregations and teachers of religion for the public educational system.

    In accordance with the stipulations of the protocol between the Romanian Patriarchy and the Ministry of Education, concerning the double subordination of the faculty to both the above mentioned institutions one seeks for a proper balance in consistently observing the lawful stipulations referring to the statute of the institutions of higher education as well as maintaining and assimilating in Orthodox doctrine, the Christian moral principles and norms of the Orthodox canon.
