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.
