  • Study programmes leading to a master of science or to specialisation after completing a university study programme. 60 credits of study obligations will be recognised to such candidates.

Candidates with foreign qualifications are required to apply for recognition of their entry qualifications. Request for recognition of foregin qualifications should be submited to the University of Ljubljana, Kongresni trg 12, Ljubljana, Slovenija. The procedure must be finished prior to the enrollment.
