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.

Endurance training running + triathlon (Monday and Tuesday):
The training is suitable for both inexperienced runners and those who have been running for a long time. Students who are thinking about triathlon training are also invited, as the training is conducted by Klemen Laurenčak, sport teacher, national team coach for triathlon, expert associate in the Athletics 1 course at the Faculty of Sports and Polet's long-term running coach.
Functional training, Aerobics + SLB (stomach, legs, buttocks):
Both exercises are suitable for all students who want variety, without specific prior knowledge, and the exercises do not condition the level of physical fitness. The performer is our long-term colleague, Liza Jovičević, Ph.D. student at the Faculty of Sports, with many years of experience in the field of group guided exercises. In both exercises, you will also learn about a set of exercises for a healthy spine (mobility) and various relaxation techniques.
Cardio exercise, Fitness-guided exercise;
In the middle of the first term in Rožna dolina (between 7:30 p.m. and 9:00 p.m.) in this academic year, we will carry out the mentioned exercise in cooperation with students and a physical education professor from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering. Sport teacher Saša Ogrizovič, has worked with many clubs and national teams, Slovenian and foreign (KK Olimpija, Croatian national basketball team, etc.) in the field of fitness training of athletes, so we will definitely learn something new.
It is a new exercise in our schedule. The training is suitable for everyone who wants to learn the basics of boxing (boxing steps, guard,...), which we will build on with training in the basics of defense (blocks, dodges, evasions) and attacking punching techniques (directs, crouches, aprecats). The training will be led by the former youth national champion, (A)IBA certified boxing coach Žak Mesec.

SPORTS ACTIVITIES WITHIN UL (Center for University Sport):
UL MF students also participate in competitions (league and individual competitions) organized by the Sports Association of the University of Ljubljana www.unisport.si. I invite all students, especially freshmen to join the MF teams and with their sports knowledge contribute to the success and visibility of the UL MF. In the 2018/19 academic year, our basketball players became champions of the university league, volleyball players won second place, and basketball players were third. These achievements place our faculty and its sports teams at the top of the most successful at UL.
The Center for Extracurricular Activities - COD organizes free practice for all students of the University of Ljubljana during exam periods (September, January, February, June) and various sports programs during the study period. Most of the activities take place in the sports hall in the student settlement in Rožna dolina. More information is available on their webpage.
The Sports project connects UL MF students with various sports interests, and teams are also organized to represent the Faculty of Medicine at university competitions. Students of the Faculty of Medicine participate in university league competitions and championships in football, basketball, volleyball, handball and many individual sports where they compete for the highest places.
They also participate in international sports events (Medicinijada, sports and entertainment meeting of medical faculties from the former Yugoslavia). You can get more information at the following web links and at the e-mail address:
