Student Life in Slovenia
Slovenia lies in the heart of Europe, which makes it easy to travel out of the country either by renting a car or flying from one of the nearest airports. If you decide to travel around Slovenia you can take a train or share a ride and there are plenty of places to visit and activities to enjoy. The younger population speaks English almost fluently which means that communication won’t be a problem wherever you go.
Slovene student organisations are very active and always ready to help you organise your life and get your social network started. Student organisations, called ESN (Erasmus Student Network), are active in all the university cities. They organise welcome or orientation weeks to help international students get to know each other and settle in. They also organise many sports and cultural events, parties and trips.
Ljubljana, Maribor and Koper are university cities which makes it easy for you to arrange your student life and enjoy your free time. Most of them don’t have strict campuses, but all the faculties around the city have at least one student dormitory nearby or a plentiful selection of private accommodation.
Universities also have a tutor system, whereby students help other students at most of the faculties. These are Slovenian students that you can ask for advice or a tour around the faculty.
Lectures are usually not obligatory, but professors highly recommend you attend. On the other hand, seminars and laboratory work are mostly obligatory. The university library is free for students – you just need to register before you can begin to use it.
Being a student in Slovenia brings numerous other benefits to both Slovene and international students who enjoy discounts on public transport, entrance fees to events or different activities. If you love biking Ljubljana is ranked 13th on the list of best cities in the world for urban cycling.
The biggest benefit of being a student is the heavily subsidised meals available in a wide range of restaurants across Slovenia. A special coupon system for student subsidised meals ensures that you will always eat well for a reasonable price.
