Help for students from Ukraine in integrating into the Slovenian environment and learning the Slovenian language

Students of the Faculty of Arts of the University of Ljubljana from the Department of Slavic Studies offer free help in the form of teaching Slovenian, socializing, supporting and getting to know life in Ljubljana.

For students with some knowledge of Slovene, they offer informal meetings to help you get rid of your discomfort of communicating in Slovenian and strengthen your ability to express yourself through conversation.

For beginners, they are ready to organise a course in basic Slovenian. Through informal socialising together, they want to help you to communicate more easily in Slovenian with your colleagues and teachers. The course will start in the second semester, probably in mid-February (after the end of the winter exam period). At our first meeting, we will agree on the dates of the course and the division into groups.  We will inform all applied students to the course about the exact date and venue at a later date. If you have any questions, please contact us at or .

You are also welcome to join the Facebook group where you can find all current information.

*Please do not contact students with questions regarding documentation for studies, residence, etc. For this purpose, use the other links available at www.uni-lj.si/study and www.uni-lj.si/study/information/temporary-residence-permit-in-the-republic-of-slovenia. For more information about obtaining a residence permit, you can write to .

Ljubljana, 21 - 23 February 2024

The University of Ljubljana is, under the auspices of the Milan Lenarčič Fund and the UDESIN School, organising a three-day international winter school, VOICES OF UKRAINE. It is intended to introduce the cultural heritage, language and history of Ukraine, to establish a permanent academic exchange between the two academic environments, to get to know each other and to strengthen the understanding of the importance of raising a generation of citizens who will strive for global justice, peace and solidarity.

Participants will learn about the past and present perspectives of Ukraine, presented by important cultural and academic names of today's Ukrainian society. Students from Ukraine will present their research projects and artworks, and in parallel there will be lectures, panel discussions and two screenings of the internationally award-winning Ukrainian film director Antoni Lukic. 

Find more about the PROGRAMME. Due to difficulties in arranging the travel from Ukraine, the programme may be modified. 

You will receive a certificate of participation with the seal of the University of Ljubljana. Participation is free of charge.
