Based on the scales of grades in the individual countries and the rules on the evaluation of foreign secondary school academic performance, the Higher Education Application-Information Service converts the grades from a foreign certificate into the Slovene grading system (https://www.uni-lj.si/study/information/enrolment-recognition/).

No, there are no entrance examinations. If more candidates apply than there are enrolment slots, candidates will be selected on the basis of their academic performance in secondary school and their performance in the ability, capacity and skills tests, if the degree programme so requires.
