Language of tuition at UL
All lectures and practical classes are held in Slovenian, so mastering the Slovenian language is extremely important, not just for successful studies, using Slovenian textbooks and understanding and communication with lecturers, but also for communicating with your academic colleagues.
Slovenian is the language of the environment in which you, the foreign students, will not only study, but also spend an importantportant part of your life. Therefore investing effort into learning it is not a bad investment of your time.
Candidates wishing to study foreign languages (other than Slovenian) at the Faculty of Arts will, in addition to the knowledge of Slovenian, also require a firm footing in the chosen foreign language, since the majority of the lectures and classes take place in the language they are studying.
Postgraduate programmes do not require knowledge of Slovenian but, in addition to knowledge of at least one world language, it is desirable.
Foreign citizens must demonstrate knowledge of Slovenian prior to enrolmentin the second year of undergraduated study, while those wishing to study the Slovenian language and literature at the Faculty of Arts, journalism at the Faculty of Social Sciences or at the Academy for Theatre, Radio, Film and Television (AGRFT) must pass an examination at the intermediate level in Slovenian prior to enrolment in the first year.
Candidates who have completed primary or secondary school in Slovenia or a bilingual secondary school do not need to take the Slovenian language examination.
