Applicants to second-cycle Master degree programmes must submit an application for enrolment through the eVŠ portal within the deadline set in the call for enrolment.
The call for enrolment for second-cycle Master degree programmes is published annually, usually in February for the following academic year.
All students pay a registration fee for each subsequent year of study, which can vary among academic years.
The tuition is charged to:
All part-time students,
Full time students,
- who have previously acquired equivalent degree of education (i.e. second-cycle),
- who want to change the study programme and have previously repeated the year or changed the study programme at the second-cycle studies;
- who are nationals of non-EU countries, and countries with which there is no bilateral agreement between the countries, on omitting the fees.
The studies of full-time students, enrolled in second-cycle study programmes are financed from the public budget; therefore, students do not pay tuition fees. This applies to citizens of the Republic of Slovenia or European Union Member States and citizens of the Republics of Macedonia, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Kosovo.
Tuition for academic year is 3.000 EUR. Students can pay the tuition in one or more instalments.
The fees are published in the faculty price list.
Slovene citizens and EU nationals may apply for second-cycle Master programmes with a fixed number of available places specified in the table below for full-time and part-time studies separately. Non-EU nationals may also apply for these places if they or one of their parents or guardians is a tax resident of the Republic of Slovenia with permanent residence in Slovenia at the time of the application.
Non-EU nationals and Slovenes not holding Slovene citizenship may apply for places specified in separate cells.
Number of available places for MA programmes of the Faculty of Arts is available here.
Candidates applying for Master study programmes should have a bachelor (first-cycle) diploma or an equivalent or higher diploma according to the Higher Education Act, and proof they meet other admission criteria, depending on the respectful Master study programme.
In case of limited access, the applications will be assessed based on selection criteria specific to the course of study (study programme) for which the candidates have applied.
If the candidate's qualifications do not meet the general admission requirements for direct admission, the candidate will be requested to provide additional proof of competences. Such additional requirements should be fulfilled before registration to the programme.
Differential exams corresponding to between 10 and 60 ECTS credits will be determined based on discrepancies between the fields of expertise. Candidates must pass these exams prior to enrolment.
Candidates are advised to request information on differential exams from department offices of the Faculty of Arts as soon as possible.
