In accordance with the Statutes of the University of Ljubljana, a student may enrol in a higher year of study as an exception even if he or she has not completed all the requirements for advancement, if he or she has justified reasons for doing so, such as maternity, prolonged illness, exceptional family and social circumstances, recognised status as a person with special needs, active participation in top professional, cultural and sporting events, and active participation in the university's governing bodies. The UL FE Student Applications Committee decides on an exception regarding an admission on the basis of the student's application.

In accordance with the legislation and the Statutes of the University of Ljubljana, a student may repeat a year of study only once during the period of study, and a change of study programme due to failure to fulfil the requirements of the previous study programme (transfer) shall also be considered a repetition.

To re-enrol in the same year, students must complete:

  • at least half of the requirements of this year - at least 30 ECTS,
  • all previous years' commitments.

Completing your studies

Students shall complete their studies when they have completed all the prescribed requirements of the study programme to a total of 120 credits.
