What is Year Plus?
Year Plus enables foreign students to improve their academic performance by re-enrolling in the first year due to the reason of insufficient knowledge of the Slovenian language in which the study process takes place.
Year Plus for the purpose of re-enrollment in the 1st year of study must obtain at least 24 ECTS credit points from the study obligations of the programme in which they are enrolled, plus at least 6 ECTS credit points from the Slovenian language exam. Students must accumulate a total of at least 30 ECTS.
Target group of Year Plus
Foreign students who do not speak Slovene or whose knowledge of the Slovenian language is inadequate, are eligible to enroll in Year Plus provided that they are enrolled for the first time in one of the study programmes of UP Faculties conducted in the Slovenian language. They must be enrolled in the study programme before enrolling in Year Plus.
Obligations of a student enrolled in Year Plus
In the first year of study, students must pass the exam of the Slovenian language course with at least 6 ECTS credit points. In addition to the Slovenian language course, they must complete other study obligations in the curriculum of the study programme in which they are enrolled, in the amount of at least 24 ECTS credits (in total 30 ECTS). Any remaining study obligations from the first year may be completed by students in the next academic year, when they are still enrolled in the first year of the same study programme.
Rights of a student enrolled in Year Plus
Students enrolled in Year Plus will be allowed to re-enroll in the 1st year at the end of the current academic year (extension of student status) provided that the student has obtained at least 30 ECTS credits, including at least 6 ECTS credit points from the Slovenian language exam.
