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.

The faculty premises are closed to all visitors

On 23 October 2020, the Government of the Republic of Slovenia adopted the Decree on the temporary prohibition of gatherings of persons in institutions in the field of education as well as in universities and independent higher education institutions, in order to contain and control the COVID-19 epidemic.
