    Certificate of Attendance

    An 80-percent attendance is required in order to receive an official Certificate of Attendance of a Slovene language course at the Faculty of Arts of the University of Ljubljana.


    11 ECTS-credits (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) could be obtained after successful completion of the Spring school.

    Certificate of Slovene

    If you want to obtain an official certificate of Slovene you can take the Exam of Slovene on Basic, Intermediate or Advanced level at the Examination centre of the Centre for Slovene as a Second and Foreign Language.

  • Participants

    Anyone with an interest in learning Slovene is very welcome. However, participants must be at least 18 years old.

    Health insurance

    Participants of the course do not automatically have special health and accident insurance and this is why you are asked to arrange your own health insurance in your country of residence prior to your arrival in Slovenia.


    Although the Centre for Slovene is a part of the University of Ljubljana, participants do not acquire student status by enrolling in a Slovene language course. Participants of longer courses, however, can obtain a student discount for the purchase of public transport bus tickets in Ljubljana (school monthly card Urbana can only be obtained until the age of 27).
