Today the Rector of the University of Ljubljana Prof. Dr. Igor Papič presented students of the University of Ljubljana certificates of recognition for their extraordinary study achievements. The certificates of recognition were awarded to 12 exceptional students, which proves yet again that University of Ljubljana students are an excellent example for their fellow students and successful ambassadors of the largest and the oldest university in Slovenia. The recipients of certificates come from the following University of Ljubljana Members: Academy of Music, Faculty of Social Sciences, Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Faculty of Computer and Information Science, Faculty of Administration, Faculty of Law and Veterinary Faculty.  

In his introductory address, the Rector of the University of Ljubljana Prof. Dr. Igor Papič pointed out that the awarded students really deserve the commendation because they achieved the greatest success and the highest grades thanks to their abilities and study efforts while pursuing further knowledge. “Your study efforts have been clearly noticed by your colleagues and mentors. They are demonstrated by the grades you earned for your study achievements as well as by other activities that support the study process. You are an excellent example to fellow students and an impressive promotion of our university. I present these recognitions today to thank you in particular and encourage you to keep affirming yourselves while obtaining new knowledge, to share that knowledge with your colleagues and, hence, act as ambassadors of an excellent and responsible university.” 

This year’s guest speaker, a professor at the Faculty of Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of the University of Ljubljana, Dr. Matevž Dular recently received the prestigious ERC Advanced Grant. In his speech, he advised the recipients to find the environment where they can be average again and where they will have to work hard to get to the forefront. “Some of you have probably completed your studies with an excellent average grade. Jokingly, one could say that you are at the best place at the moment, yet also at the worst place because professors did not give you enough challenges and you didn’t have to show everything you know. Go some place else, don’t stay at home. But it is even more important that after you do so that you return to Slovenia, to the University of Ljubljana and teach – make sure your successors will have to show more to get an excellent grade. And when they achieve above-average results, send them some place else, because at that point you will already know that this is the only way for them to grow, too.”
