Study in Ljubljana

Ljubljana lies in the basin between the Karst and the Alps, some 298 m above the sea. With its 280,000 inhabitants, it ranks among the smaller European capitals but it is big enough to encompass everything expected from a capital city, while being small enough to allow people to retain their individuality.


The Social Sciences Research Institute is the largest research institute for Social Sciences in Slovenia. Research at the Institute is carried out within the framework of national and international research programmes. Intensive research is carried out within European Union research projects, but researchers and research centres are also involved in other international research.

Building of the Faculty of Social Sciences is closed at least until 13 April 2020

In accordance with the provisions of the Decree on the temporary prohibition of gathering of people in educational institutions, universities and independent higher education institutions of 15 March 2020, the building of the Faculty of Social Sciences is closed until further notice.
