When deciding to enter a Master’s degree programme, students are guided by various motives. They want to improve their position and increase competitiveness in the labour market, expand their knowledge and experience in the chosen profession, obtain wider employment opportunities, etc. In the majority of cases, motivation is a combination of all above factors. That is why it is necessary to think carefully and choose the educational institution that best suits your professional goals and academic needs.
With 6 universities and 49 institutes on its territory, Slovenia has recently become one of the most attractive countries for pursuing an academic career. All study programmes are implemented within the Bologna system at three levels and are accredited by the Ministry of Higher Education, Science and Technology.
To enter a Master’s degree programme and remain at a competitive level, applicants from foreign countries must receive at least 180 ETS credits within basic study programmes. Slovenian educational institutions do not have entrance exams in the majority of cases. Training period usually lasts 2 years.
Most important for potential students is the fact that a diploma obtained in Slovenia is recognised in all countries of the European Union as well as throughout the world. Thus, if you receive a Master’s degree at one of the Slovenian faculties, you will have an excellent starting position in the European labour market and, therefore, a better chance of finding a job. If you decide to stay in Slovenia, you will be evaluated along with the Slovenian candidates.
Master’s degree programmes offer Slovenian as the language of instruction, while some study programmes are still available in English. Students from the Balkan countries as well as representatives of the Slavic states learn Slovenian without any problems due to a common origin of their languages. In any case, it is recommended that all future undergraduates acquire a certain level of knowledge of the Slovenian language before starting their studies.
It is important to be aware of those pitfalls, which can become a serious problem for foreign applicants. Without sufficient information and readiness for the requirements of enrolment campaign, they often put themselves into a complicated red tape adventure. The result of such actions can be extremely depressing. Applicants fail to enter a Master’s degree programme and lose one academic year for nothing. It should be borne in mind that, unlike most countries in the region, in Slovenia, when entering a Master’s degree programme, applicants, as a rule, must choose a major, which is similar or related to their previous undergraduate programmes. Otherwise, they will have to take qualifying exams.
