Established in 1919, the University of Ljubljana is the first and the largest university in Slovenia. With a current enrollment of around 57,000 students, it ranks among the largest universities in the world. For several years the University of Ljubljana has been listed on the Shanghai Academic Ranking of World Universities. It currently has 23 faculties and three academies, scattered around urban Ljubljana. Nearly one tenth of the inhabitants of the capital city are students.

For more than half a century the University of Ljubljana remained the only Slovene university, until 1975 when it was joined by the University of Maribor. Since that time two other universities have been established – the public University of Primorska in 2003 and the private University of Nova Gorica in 2006.


The University of Ljubljana comprises a total of 23 faculties, three art academies and one university college, which employ some 4,300 full-time and part-time university teaching staff, assisted by nearly 1,500 technical and administrative staff. Around 60,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students participate in more than 156 1st cycle study programmes, 125 academic and 31 higher professional programmes, mostly qualitative study programmes in both the humanities and scientific and technological fields, as well as in medicine, dentistry and veterinary science.

The study courses and projects run at the University of Ljubljana follow the latest world discoveries and trends in the fields of art, science and technology, on both a domestic and an international level.

International cooperation

The University of Ljubljana is a member of many international networks, including the Heads of University Management and Administration Network in Europe (HUMANE), the Inter-University Centre Dubrovnik, the Institutional Network of Universities from European Capitals (UNICA), Dean Conference – Alps-Adriatic, the European University Association (EUA), the International Association of Universities (IAU), the European Association for International Education (EAIE), the Utrecht Network and the Network of South East European Universities (AIMOS).

The University's International Co-operation Office gives general information concerning recognition of diplomas, courses, symposia, summer schools, seminars, international conferences, the admission procedures for enrolment in the first year of studies at university, news, links and information on documents on higher education. Student and professor exchanges are easier where there are agreements. The University of Ljubljana has signed agreements with the universities in Austria, the Czech Republic, Italy, Croatia, Malta, Macedonia, Germany, Slovakia, Poland, the USA, Spain, Russia and Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The University of Ljubljana is also a research partner in the Electronic Literature as a Model of Creativity and Innovation in Practice (ELMCIP) project running from 2010–2013, funded by the Humanities in the European Research Area (HERA) JRP for Creativity and Innovation.
