Urgent measures of University of Ljubljana regarding the spread of the coronavirus

University of Ljubljana had to adapt quickly to the new reality caused by COVID-19. We have taken measures to guarantee the safety of all of our students and staff. On 13. 3. 2020, all academic activities moved to online, including examinations. We will proceed with online activities until the end of the summer semester 2019/2020.

You can find all updates on regulations and taken measures concerning Covid-19 on our website.

We are planning to resume face-to-face teaching activities from the beginning of the winter semester 2020/2021.

We will start with the winter semester as planned on 1 October 2020. However, as the global situation changes fast and we are living in uncertain times, it is still possible that some changes might happen regarding teaching and learning during the winter semester.

We kindly ask students, selected to experience Erasmus+ mobility at University of Ljubljana, to inform themselves regularly on the updated measures and regulations at our website and to observe the entry and exit regulations of Slovenia and of their home country to be able to decide in due course whether their envisaged exchange will be feasible.

We hope to receive applications for the winter semester exchange until 31 May 2020, but we will be flexible also after this deadline. We will keep you informed about any possible changes.

Timeline of applications

The information on this page is complemented by specific organizational steps to be taken BEFOREDURING and AFTER mobilty.

The above links Winter Semester and Summer Semester list courses for one- or two-semester students’ internships. The courses are separated into two parts, since individual courses take place only in one of the two semesters.

All of the listed courses are offered to English speaking internship students.

Exams are written and oral. A sufficient fluency in English is necessary for a successful communication during the studying process and for taking exams. As a rule of thumb, we reommend knowledge of English that is on a par with the B2 level certificate. Language certificate by itself is not required from our side; however students are fully responsible for assuring the sufficiency of language skills.

Credits (in Transcript of records as well as in any other document) are issued solely on a basis of successfully passed exams. No credits are assigned on finer-gramular levels (such as successful completion of laboratory courses). Transcript of records consist of only positively graded exams. Negative grades are neither included in transcript of records, nor they are stated in any other issued document.

Information about laboratories and their research activities are provided at the link.
