Program description

The University of Ljubljana (UL) has been participating in the Erasmus + program since 1989. It consistently follows the principles set out in the ECHE Charter and carries out the activities required before, during and after the mobility. In Key Action 1, which refers to the learning mobility of individuals, UL implements the mobility of students for study and traineeship and the mobility of teaching and training staff.

For the successful implementation of the Erasmus + program, it has concluded more than 2000 interinstitutional agreements with around 900 higher education institutions participating in the program. Lists of agreements, information on partners, study programs and conditions of participation are published on the website. In order to increase transparency and manageability, UL has signed interinstitutional agreements at Member State level, which has enabled it to adapt more quickly to real needs and to communicate properly with partners. UL and its members implement the Internationalization Strategy, which has been incorporated into faculty strategies through the conclusion of agreements. The University Office for International Cooperation (USMS) supports their activities and coordinates activities that were in the common interest of all participants and implements and monitors the financial part of mobility, maintains a database and coordinates and implements the contractual part of the project. UL carries out approximately 1500 outgoing students in each contract cycle and accepts the same number of incoming students. It carries out almost 200 staff mobility for teaching and 100 mobility for training.

Most Slovenian students carry out mobility in Germany, Portugal, Spain and the Czech Republic. UL hosted the largest number of German, Spanish, French and Czech students. All UL members participate in the Erasmus + program, the most active are members with several subjects and programs in English and a clear vision of internationalization.
