Parallel enrollment

Slovenian citizens, EU citizens, and Slovenians without Slovenian citizenship can apply for parallel enrollment after successfully finishing their first year of studies at their home faculty. Application is also possible after finishing the upper years, but no later than when enrolling in the last year of studies at their home faculty. Application is not possible in the additional year.

The Call for enrolment into undergraduate degree programmes at the University of Ljubljana is published here and here.

Candidates apply for enrollment through the eVŠ web portal.

For enrolment in the first year of parallel studies, no tuition fee is required if the candidates have not yet achieved education corresponding to at least the level of education obtained in the study programme in which they are enrolled. When a student graduates and acquires the same level of education in their current studies, payment of the tuition fee for their parallel studies is required for the next academic year.

Candidates must send to our Faculty:

  • documents confirming that they meet the conditions for enrollment in a study program,
  • recognition of foreign education,
  • a certificate confirming that they have completed the obligations for enrolment in a higher year at the higher education institution where they are already enrolled and
  • consent of the current faculty.
Year plus

During their first year at the University of Ljubljana, international students may attend Year Plus, in which the Slovenian language courses are mandatory. Year Plus is designed to help international students to adapt to the Slovenian system and culture in their first year of study in Slovenia:

  • for international students in their 1st year at the University of Ljubljana;
  • learning Slovene for free;
  • up to 3 ECTS;
  • three lessons per week + some additional activities;
  • extension of student status is possible when meeting specific requirements.

You can apply for the Year Plus module 24 hours after finishing the application process at the faculty. You will need your digital certificate to use. Students will receive further information via email. The number of places is limited, so we recommend candidates apply as soon as possible!
