The 10th Informativa – the largest education and career fair in Slovenia – was held on Friday and Saturday, 26 and 27 January 2018, at the Ljubljana Exhibition and Convention Centre. The University of Ljubljana was represented at the event by its faculties and academies and offices of the Rectorate, which offered advice to students primarily related to entrance procedures, international exchanges and postgraduate studies. A new feature at the information stand of the University City this year was an information point for the Ljubljana Administrative Unit where future students could submit applications for a digital certificate, helping them to avoid any substantial procedural errors when entering their selected University Member. 

The exhibitors from the University of Ljubljana again faced a record number of visitors at their stands. Secondary school and university students visiting the event in large numbers expressed great interest in the fields of social sciences, humanities, arts, natural sciences and engineering and technology. Stands offering the possibility of interaction with visitors received the most interest. The representatives at stands were mostly employees of University Members and students who were able to provide visitors with first-hand experience of the studies. 

Career centres of the University of Ljubljana prepared an attractive programme in the large lecture hall where students could primarily obtain useful information about courses. The main attraction was Tilen Artač and his comical advice on how to select courses and a future career. Graduates from the University presented their experience with the courses and employment opportunities in their respective fields. Individual sessions providing career advice in particular attracted a large number of people. 

Prof. Dr. Igor Papič, Rector of the University of Ljubljana walked through the University City on Friday, visiting each and every stand and trying out a few experiments for himself. 

The University of Ljubljana with its University City theme was awarded the title Best Exhibitor at Informativa 2018, and we would like to congratulate in particular all those who were involved in presentations at the respective stands of University faculties and academies.
