The University of Ljubljana is an institution with a very rich tradition.
With its 56,000 undergraduate and post-graduate students participating in more
than 130 undergraduate and 110 post-graduate programes, it ranks among the
biggest universities in the world scale. A total of 20 faculties, 3 art
academies and 3 university colleges employ approx. 1,700 full- time university
teaching staff, assisted by nearly 600 technical and administrative staff.
The University of Ljubljana was established in 1919 on the foundations of a
long- established pedagogical tradition. For almost half a century it remained
the only Slovenian university until it was joined, about 20 years ago, by the
University of Maribor. The establishment of the third Slovenian University on
the coast of Slovenia is foreseen in the near future.
The university has its seat in Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia. Ljubljana
is a relatively large central European city with approx. 300,000 inhabitants.
Nearly one tenth of its inhabitants are students, which gives Ljubljana a young
and lively character.
The university was founded in the centre of Ljubljana where the central
university building and the majority of its faculties are located. Later on,
some new, modern buildings were constructed in the suburbs of the city.
The University of Ljubljana is famous for the quality of its study courses
both in the humanities, and in scientific and technological fields, as well as
in medicine, dentistry and veterinary science.
On a domestic and international level, the study courses run at the
University of Ljubljana and its projects follow the latest world discoveries and
trends in the field of art, science and technology, to which the contribution of
numerous Slovenian professors and researchers is of great importance.
