Curriculum and schedules
Key to course codes

The courses are coded with a capital letter and two numbers. The capital letter indicates the scientific field or a combination of fields. The first number indicates the type of the course and the second one consists of three digits, the first indicating the location and the last two the consecutive number of the course. 

Scientific fields:
G - Genetics
B - Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
F - Pharmacy
L - Clinical Biochemistry and Laboratory Biomedicine
J - Basic Medical Science
K - Clinical Medicine
M - Microbiology
N - Neuroscience
V - Veterinary Medicine
S – Public Health
T - Toxicology 

Types of courses:
1 – core courses
2 – elective theoretical courses
3 – elective individual research courses 

Course locations:

1 – Faculty of Medicine - Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
2 – Faculty of Pharmacy – Pharmacy
3 – Faculty of Pharmacy - Clinical Biochemistry and Laboratory Biomedicine, Toxicology
4 – Faculty of Medicine – Basic Medical Science, Public Health, Microbiology
5 – Faculty of Medicine, University Medical Centre Ljubljana, Institut of Oncology Ljubljana, University Psyhiatric Hospital Ljubljana – Clinical Medicine, Neuroscience
6 – Biotechnical Faculty - Microbiology, Genetics
7 – Veterinary Faculty – Veterinary Medicine
8 – Faculty of Chemistry and Chemical Technology
9 – research institutes: Josef Stefan Institute, Chemical Institute, National Institute of Biology

Hence, the course bearing the code B-2-940 belongs in the area of biochemistry and molecular biology (B), is an elective theoretical course (2) and is carried out at a research institute (9).
