Dear student,

There are only a few days left until the beginning of the forthcoming academic year. On Wednesday, 4 October 2017 at 2 p.m., we will organise a special reception ceremony for international students who are enrolled in degree programmes of the University of Ljubljana where you will have the opportunity to get useful first-hand information about studying at the University of Ljubljana and about living in Ljubljana, as well as to meet the contact persons for the international students from the academies and faculties of the University.

During the first part of the reception ceremony, you will receive information regarding the arrangement of health insurance, the registration of residence permits, scholarship opportunities, subsidised meals and public transport, and accommodation in student residences. This will be followed by the presentation of career counselling, tutoring and extracurricular and other activities for students which are organised by the University of Ljubljana.

You will also receive detailed information about Year Plus, where you can acquire linguistic and other competences and expertise from selected study fields. You will also have the opportunity to get to know the culture, history and constitutional system of Slovenia, and to test your knowledge of the Slovenian language.

During the ceremony, the newly elected Rector of the University of Ljubljana Prof. Dr. Igor Papič will give a speech.

The ceremony is expected to end at 6:30 p.m. Please find enclosed a detailed schedule.
