General competences

Upon completion of a degree programme, students should have gained the following transferable skills:

The ability to analyse causes of natural phenomena
A familiarity with the methods used in science
The ability to present results in a form accessible to either scientists or members of the public
The capability to analyse data using computer resources

Subject-specific competences

Upon completion of a degree programme, the students should have:

Gained an insight into the fundamental laws of physics and nature
Learnt how to see the links between different natural phenomena
Gained basic experimental skills
Learnt how to solve physical models analytically and computationally

Criteria for recognising knowledge and skills obtained prior to enrolment in the programme

Certain prior qualifications can be acknowledged and accepted as successfully completed lecture courses. If the content and duration of the lecture course completed elsewhere is comparable to a course at the Department of Physics, it can be awarded the same number of ECTS credits. A written request, including proof of qualifications, must be made. Each case is considered by the study committee of the Department of Physics on an individual basis. Please note that it is advisable to consult the Student Support Office in such circumstances.

Assessment methods

Each lecture course is assessed individually. Typically, there will be a written and an oral examination. Written examinations are usually distributed throughout the semester, while oral examinations take place after other requirements (written examination, homeworks, seminars etc.) have been met. There are three formal examination periods per academic year. The assessment criteria and details are subject to the rules and guidelines of the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, which are confirmed by the Senate of the Faculty of the Mathematics and Physics. In assessment, grades are awarded according to the Statutes of the University of Ljubljana.

Conditions for advancement under the programme

In order to progress to the second year, one must have fulfilled all the requirements of the following lecture courses: Physics I, Mathematics I, Physics Laboratory I and II, and have obtained at least 54 ECTS in the first year (including the credits obtained from the compulsory lecture courses listed above).
In order to progress to the third year, one must have successfully completed the first year (60 ECTS) and fulfilled all the requirements of the following lecture courses: Physics II, Mathematics II, Physics Laboratory III and IV, and have obtained at least 54 ECTS in the second year (including the credits obtained from the compulsory lecture courses listed above).

In order to repeat a year, the following requirements have to be fulfilled:

At least half of the required credits of the current year must have been obtained, that is 30 ECTS, and
All requirements of preceding years must have been met entirely.

Conditions for transferring between programmes

Transfers from other degree programmes, as well as transfers between physics programmes, are possible. They are, however, subject to conditions and requirements determined by the study committee of the Department of Physics. Enquiries should be made to the Student Support Office.
