Study programme learning outcomes
The basic aim of the study programme is to provide basics for continuing studies in master studies in wood science and technology and other fields of study. The interdisciplinary knowledge of the graduate provides employment opportunities in fields ranging from solving demanding technological problems in the production and processing of wood and other ligno-cellulose materials, to cooperation in interdisciplinary research and development teams in designing and developing wood products and performing strategic leadership and development tasks in the local and/or international interdisciplinary professional environment.
Mode of study
Available enrolment slots: 45 slots for full-time study, 2 slots for Slovenes without Slovene citizenship and foreigners and 1 slot for parallel studies.
Official duration of the study programme in credits and years
The first cycle academic study programme WOOD SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY lasts 3 years (6 semesters) and has a workload of 180 ECTS. Students are required to complete 60 ECTS each year.
Name of qualification and title conferred
- diplomirani inženir lesarstva (UN) or
- diplomirana inženirka lesarstva (UN)
- dipl. inž. les. (UN)
Access to the academic study programme Wood Science and Technology is granted to candidates who have:
a) completed the general Matura.
b) completed the vocational Matura at any secondary school and one exam from the general Matura subjects; the chosen subject must not be a subject already completed within the vocational Matura.
c) completed a four-year secondary school programme prior to 1 June 1995.
Admission to the programme is also granted to candidates who have completed equivalent education abroad, and who enrol under the same requirements which apply for candidates who completed their education in Slovenia. Prior to enrolment in the study programme they must complete the procedure for recognition of education for the purpose of further study.
In case of limited enrolment the following selection criteria apply:
a) for candidates referred to in points a) and c):
- overall average in general Matura or final examination subjects: 60% of total points,
- overall average in the third and fourth years of secondary school: 40% of total points.
b) for candidates referred to in point b):
- overall average in Vocational matura subjects: 20% of total points,
- overall average in the third and fourth years of secondary school: 40% of total points,
- grade in the general Matura subject: 40% of total points.
Conditions for progression to a higher year:
A student may enrol in Year 2 if he completes study requirements of Year 1 in the amount of 48 ECTS by the end of the academic year. A student may enrol in Year 3 if he completes all study requirements of Year 1 (60 ECTS) and all study requirements of Year 2 (completed lectures and tutorials) in the amount of 48 ECTS; a total of 108 ECTS.
The competent Studies Committee may exceptionally approve the progression to a higher year for a student who has gained at least 45 ECTS in the previous year, if the student can provide justifiable reasons in accordance with the Statutes of the University of Ljubljana.
Conditions for repeating a year:
Students can repeat a year provided that they complete study requirements in a total amount of at least:
- completed tutorials and 30 ECTS to repeat Year 1,
- 60 ECTS from Year 1, completed tutorials and 30 ECTS from Year 2 to repeat Year 2.
During their course of study students may only once repeat a year or change their study programme owing to non-fulfilment of requirements.
Transfer between study programmes
A transfer between study programmes means termination of education in the first study programme and continuation of studies in another study programme. A transfer is possible only if the the candidates meet the requirements for enrolment in the new study programme. Tansfers between various study programmes for obtaining the same level of education is possible if at least 50% of ECTS of the first study programme can be recognised (i.e. if at least 30 ECTS can be recognised in the first year of the new study programme).
Transfers are possible:
- from comparable first cycle professional and academic study programmes or from long-cycle master’s study programmes in the field of wood science, if the candidate meets the new programme admission requirements. In approving the transfer and determining additional requirements, the competent Studies Committee will set which courses and study requirements and to what extent will be recognised, and the year in which the student may enrol.
- from pre-Bologna academic study programmes in the field of wood science, if the candidate meets the new programme admission requirements. In approving the transfer and determining additional requirements, the competent Studies Committee will set which courses and study requirements and to what extent will be recognised, and the year in which the student may enrol.
