Employment opportunities:
Research, education, healthcare, finance, media, construction, energy, mechanical engineering, civil engineering, information technology, telecommunications, pharmaceutical industry, chemical industry, electronic and optical industries …

Entry requirements

There is an active Erasmus+ student exchange programme. In this case the prerequisites for attending particular courses are discussed with the students on a case-by-case basis. 

Requirements for progression to the second and third years

Requirements for repeating a year

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

Acknowledgement of prior qualifications

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

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.

Transfers from other degree 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.
