Due to our internal organisation at the Faculty of Health Sciences we offer Erasmus+ exchange programme in Spring semester only.

Exchange students start their Erasmus+ mobility programme with a compulsory theoretical module and continue with a period of clinical placement. The main aim is to offer all exchange students a common start and an opportunity for social, international and interprofessional networking from the beginning of the exchange period. After the compulsory module, students continue with clinical placement based on their own professional interests.

You can find more information in the brochure ERASMUS+ Mobility Programme 2020-21.

Compulsory Vaccination

Vaccination against Measles and Hepatitis B is compulsory for all incoming students.

Language Requirements

The University of Ljubljana offers instruction in Slovenian and English and requires that the student has very good language skills (very good knowledge in reading, writing and speaking of the language) in at least one of the two languages in order to be able to study here. If the language requirements are not met, the University of Ljubljana will not accept you.
