Dear visiting student,

We are delighted that you have chosen the Faculty of Social Sciences at the University of Ljubljana as your study exchange destination. Welcome to our institution that is well known for its interdisciplinary study programs, research activities and high quality teaching.

We try to create and pursue an academic atmosphere in which intellectual fulfillment thrives and knowledge is abundant. We are aware that student exchange programs contribute to the development of modern societies, ethical values and individuals in general. Student exchange is characterized by the coming together of people with different cultural orientations, thinking patterns, perceptions, and emotions; people who must adapt their skills, attitudes and behavior in order to function in an intercultural context. The Faculty offers undergraduate and graduate courses for foreign students based on modern teaching methods whereby students are encouraged to be active participants in the education process.

We are confident that your stay at the Faculty of Social Sciences will be a valuable experience in academic, social and cultural terms. Living in Ljubljana, Slovenia and thereby in the midst of Europe will only add to the intellectual richness you will experience at the University. Also, the network of colleagues and friends you will make here will become an important part of your future life and career.
