Please note that the Faculty of Medicine will send you the confirmation of your mobility and schedule according to the courses selected in your Learning agreement. It could be that the time period of your mobility will not fit the exact time frame of the semesters.
The Faculty of Medicine offers the Erasmus+ exchange programme in Medicine and Dental Medicine. We are offering the selection of courses, organised in English. The courses are offered form our 3rd year on. Students from the last year are as well allowed to take clinical practice in the hospital in the following fields: Internal Medicine, Surgery, Pediatrics and Gynecology&Obstetrics. The first two clinical practices are offered throughout the entire academic year, but the last two only in certain time periods (please check the documents below).
Since we are facing in the last year a constant increase of Erasmus+ incoming students there is the need to limit the number of available places to the Erasmus+ students in some courses: Nervous system, Musculoskeletal system, Mental Diseases, ORL, Gynaecology and Obstetrics, Clinical Paediatrics, Methods of Public Health. The places are given on a first come, first serve basis.
We offer to the Erasmus+ students a certain selection of obligatory courses (see the list of available courses below) and in addition students can choose from the list of elective courses. In order to select the courses students have to provide when submitting the online application a Learning agreement confirmed by the student and his home institution. Courses from our 4th and 5th year are a combination of practical and theoretical courses and all end with an obligatory final examination.
Students can choose courses from different study years as long as there is NO TIME COLLISSION between the selected courses. Only such courses will be confirmed to teh student. Please see the schedule of courses posted for each academic year. Note as well that courses are organised in english only in a selected time frame and no alternatives are possible
At the end of Mobility students will receive the final Transcript of Records which will be set on the basis of their signed Learning agreement and the examination records during their study exchange in Ljubljana. The Transcript of Records will include as well the information about the clinical practice which the student has done during the exchange as well as the duration of the mobility. The Transcript of Records is prepared on the basis of the courses from our Curriculum. Students receive the final Transcript of Records upon their departure.
We will post further detailed information about the schedule for the courses as soon as we will set the academic calander for the next academic year. Please take for reference the current one since we don´ expect many changes.
The exchange in Dental medicine is only possible in the winter (first) semester and we only accept students to our 5th year.
