Slovene Language Courses

Centre for Slovene as a second or foreign language organises every year before the start of the semester an intensive 3-week course of Slovene for Erasmus+ incoming students. You can apply directly at the Centre.

If you are not able to attend the Slovene language courses at the centre you could perhaps learn Slovene by using their Slovene online tool. The tool is now available in seven different language options and it is certainly a good start to catch some basic Slovene words.

Faculty of Medicine organises with the help of our students a Slovene medical vocabulary workshop which is organised in the first week of every semester. You will get the basic medical vocabulary which will help you catch some words in Slovene when communicating with patients during the clinical practice. You can as well take the advantage of the tool MEDINElingua which offers medical vocabulary in several languages.



Faculty of Medicine does not provide the accommodation for Erasmus+ incoming students. The basic information is given by the central office of the University of Ljubljana. There is a limited number of places available in Student dormitories and they will give you the practical information on how and where to find private accommodation. Please make sure you will apply on time and mind that Ljubljana is becoming a very popular city so please make sure you will arrive on time and have the time to get a place to stay. For more information please visit the University webpage.


Medical Insurance
Foreign students coming from the EU member countries and the countries of the European economic region should have the E 128 form, E 111 form or E-card. The document type depends on the authorized insurance agency of the country of their origin. Namely, the students should contact the authorized insurance agency, where they have been insured, and ask for one of the above-mentioned forms. Students should have appropriate insurance coverage (also for accidents and liability) when coming to Slovenia. Faculty of Medicine does not provide medical or liability insurance for the incoming exchange students.
