University of Ljubljana among top 3% in the world
The University of Ljubljana, founded in 1919, with 23 faculties and 3 art academies, is the oldest and largest higher education, scientific research, and art institution in Slovenia. The University fosters basic, applied, and developmental research.
Our degree programmes range across all fields of study: Art, Fine Arts, Natural Science, Technology and Engineering, Social Sciences, Humanities, Medicine, Health Sciences, and Sports, all designed in line with the Bologna Process guidelines.
In cooperation with foreign universities, we conduct interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary studies and we emphasize international exchanges of students and staff. We are actively involved in international partnerships and we lead the association EUTOPIA, which includes five other European universities. Each year around 40,000 students increase and develop their knowledge and skills at our institution, including 8% of the student body comprised by international students from more than 100 countries.
Furthermore, the University has been most successful in research, therefore the central and largest research institution in Slovenia, with 30% of all registered researchers. It promotes interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary studies and exchanges its achievements in science and art with other universities and scientific research institutions.
Particular concern of the University of Ljubljana is also the transfer of knowledge to the economy, which is why it cooperates closely with Slovenian and foreign companies. Its partners are multinational corporations and top Slovenian companies.
