Candidates for the Interdisciplinary Doctoral Programme in Environmental Protection are graduates of the following programmes:

  • Second cycle study programmes.
  • Study programmes providing education for occupations regulated by Directives of the European Union, evaluated with at least 300 credits.
  • Study programmes leading to specialisation provided that candidates have previously completed a higher education professional study programme. The Programme Council will specify additional entry requirements for candidates in individual areas amounting from 30 to 60 credits.
  • Study programmes leading to a master of science or to specialisation after completing an academic study programme. 60 credits of study obligations will be recognised to such candidates.
  • Academic study programmes.

Candidates with foreign qualifications are required to apply for recognition of their entry qualifications. The procedure starts with the candidate’s application for study in the Republic of Slovenia, which is submitted in electronic form on the eVŠ portal. The procedure is run by the authorised person at the University Member (academy or faculty).

The selection of candidates is particularly at issue when the number of candidates significantly exceeds the number of places offered. Selection will be primarily based on the candidate’s level of achievement in previous studies.

Knowledge and skills obtained through formal and informal learning and experience obtained before enrolment to the programme will be taken into consideration when making a selection for the limited number of places. The knowledge and skills of candidates obtained before entry will be recognized by the Programme Council in accordance with the Rules of the University of Ljubljana on procedures and measures on recognising informally obtained knowledge and skills, and on the basis of written application of the candidates.

The tuition fee is paid individually for each study year or for each year that the student enrols in. 
The tuition fees are published in the price list adopted by the UL Board: https://www.uni-lj.si/study/doctoral/tuition-fees.
