Elective courses and mobility opportunities

 

In the third year of study, students can select four courses (with a total of 20 ECTS) from the inventory of elective courses. Six among these ECTS can be earned by selecting (previously uncompleted) elective courses provided by other study programmes at the Faculty of Maritime Studies and Transport or by other faculties of the University of Ljubljana (with the consent of the home institution). 

Enrolment in the first-cycle academic degree study programme of Transport Technology and Logistics is open to all candidates that completed their four-year secondary school studies:

1. with a general school-leaving exam (matura)

2. with a vocational school-leaving exam (matura) and an additional exam from the inventory of general matura subjects that had not been taken for the vocational matura

3. before 1 June 1995. 

Selection criteria for candidates:

a. under points 1 and 2 above (if restricted enrolment is applied):

  • matura or vocational matura average grade - 60%
  • secondary school average grade in the third and fourth years - 40%

b. under point 3 above:

  • vocational matura average grade - 40%

  • secondary school average grade in the third and fourth years - 40%

  • additional matura exam grade - 20%.

Procedure and Criteria on the Recognition of Knowledge

 

Students may apply for the recognition of knowledge acquired at different educational institutions if this is in content and scope compliant with the content and objectives of the first-cycle study programmes at the Faculty of Maritime Studies and Transport. The body appointed for the implementation of the procedure to recognise the knowledge previously obtained is the Academic Affairs Committee of the Faculty of Maritime Studies and Transport. The recognition procedure starts on request by the candidate who submits an application, certificates and other documents that serve as evidence of the previously acquired knowledge and are compliant with the Rules on the Procedure and Criteria on the Recognition of the Knowledge and Skills Obtained through Informal Learning, accepted by the Senate of the University of Ljubljana at its 15th Session of 29 May 2007. If previously obtained knowledge can be recognised, it may be evaluated with the same number of ECTS awarded to the relevant course. 

The following criteria are applied by the Academic Affairs Committee in the recognition procedure before enrolment:

- eligibility for enrolment into different forms of education (required previous level of education),

- comparability of the scope of education (number of hours of previous education if compared against the number of hours of the relevant course),

- comparability of the content of previous education if compared against the relevant course. 

The previously acquired knowledge may be recognised as a completed study requirement if the enrolment criteria met include at least secondary school qualifications, if previous education covered a minimum of 75% of the relevant course, and if previous education covered at least 75% of the content of the relevant course. 

If these conditions are met, the previously acquired knowledge is granted the number of ECTS awarded to the relevant course. 

 

Advancement into a higher year of study is open to students that have before the end of the current academic year completed all necessary requirements, as defined by the study programme. Advancement into the third or higher year of study is open to students that have completed all requirements, as defined by the study programme, of the year of study preceding the current enrolment year. 

 

Advancement into a higher year of study is open to all students that have earned the following number of ECTS:

- for advancement into the second year, at least 50 ECTS earned in first-year courses,

- for advancement into the third year, a minimum of 60 ECTS earned in first-year courses and a minimum of 50 ECTS in second-year courses. 

 

If approved by the Academic Affairs Committee, exceptional advancement into the higher year of study may be granted if in accordance with the justified reasons acknowledged by the Statute of the University of Ljubljana:

- advancement into the second year of study if a minimum of 40 ECTS from completing first-year courses has been earned,

- advancement into the third year of study if a minimum of 100 ECTS from completing first-year (60 ECTS) and second-year (40 ECTS) courses has been earned. 

 

Repetition of a year of study is open to students that have earned the following number of ECTS:

- for the repetition of the first year, a minimum of 20 ECTS,

- for the repetition of the second year, a minimum of 60 ECTS earned from completing first-year courses, and a minimum of 20 ECTS earned in second-year courses.

 

 

 

Transfers between study programmes are possible under the conditions set out in the valid rules for transfers between study programmes. The body competent for approving student applications for transfers between study programmes is the Senate of the Faculty of Maritime Studies and Transport based on a proposal made by the Academic Affairs Committee submitted in accordance with the provisions of the Statute of the University of Ljubljana. For each candidate, the Academic Affairs Committee defines the scope of the recognition of previously completed study requirements, additional study requirements, and the year of enrolment.

The Faculty of Maritime Studies and Transport provides two modes of study: full-time and part-time.

 

Full-time study

Full-time study is offered for all first-cycle degree study programmes.

 

Part-time study

Part-time study is offered for both second-cycle and all first-cycle degree study programmes.

Part-time study is equivalent to full-time study in terms of its content and level of difficulty. A part-time student shall meet all study requirements set for full-time students. The part-time study of the first-cycle academic degree study programme of Transport Technology and Logistics is organised at the seat of the Faculty of Maritime Studies and Transport in Portorož. The part-time study of the first-cycle professional degree study programme of Transport Technology and Transport Logistics is organised at the seat of the Faculty of Maritime Studies and Transport in Portorož, and in Ljubljana. The part-time study of the first-cycle professional degree study programmes of Navigation and of Marine Engineering is organised at the seat of the Faculty of Maritime Studies and Transport in Portorož.

If a study programme is selected by a low number of students, the educational process is organised in the form of consultative meetings: 1 hour if the number of enrolled students is 1 to 5, 4 hours if the number of enrolled students is 6 to 9. In this case, the autonomous study process of the students is based on the study materials made available by the lecturers, introductory sessions with the lecturer, and individual or group (in person, by phone, by email) consultative meetings with the lecturer. All consultative meetings are organised in the afternoons and on Saturdays, within the limitations of the available facilities and resources. 

In order to graduate from this study programme, a student must complete all study requirements (180 ECTS) set by all obligatory and elective courses.

One of the obligatory courses is the Degree Project that each student defends to their selected mentor.

The study requirements of each course are set in the course syllabuses.
