Study at Our New Partner in Slovenia – The University of Ljubjana
We would like to inform out students who will be studying abroad from 2014/15 on wards about our new partnership with the Faculty of Economics at the University of Ljubjana (FELU). This is an exciting opportunity for students who want to expand their studies in the Economic field and spend time in a country that is not only growing in independence, but is located in a naturally beautiful part of Europe.
From the FELU website:
“The FELU is both a national leader and an internationally recognised academic and research institution in the fields of business and economics. We strive to become a world known for the quality of our academic programmes and achievements in education and research.”
The FELU offers over 80 carefully designed courses taught in English that attract over 500 international students every year. As such, FELU is very well set up to support exchange students like yourself and even offers Slovenian language courses. You might be interested in seeing some previously student profiles to see what they have to say about doing an exchange at FELU.
On top of that, the FELU has an excellent academic reputation, and is the only school in Southeastern Europe with both EQUIS and AACSB accreditation. If you’re still looking for more reasons to spend your year abroad here, you can’t help but be impressed by what they can offer you and how a year here would be a great asset to your graduate CV: Study at the FELU
Slovenia – ‘A Bridge between East & West’
“The Republic of Slovenia lies at the heart of Europe where the Alps face the Pannonia plains and the Mediterranean meets the mysterious Karst. As a beautiful and picturesque country, Slovenia makes a great tourist destination. Mountains, lakes, waterfalls, forests, caves, hills, plains, rivers and the sea – you name it, you can find it all within the country’s modest 20,273 km2, as well as many natural and landscape parks. You can ski in the morning and surrender yourself to the luxury of the Adriatic Sea in the afternoon. Last but not least, Slovenia has 15 natural spas at which you can take care of your health with the help of its thermal mineral waters.
On 25 June 1991 Slovenia declared its independence and began its successful story of transition from socialism to a market economy. It boasts stable GDP growth and is viewed as a safe country, being ranked among those countries with the lowest degree of risk.
Slovenia joined the European Union on 1 May 2004 and introduced the euro on 1 January 2007. Slovenia was holding the EU Council Presidency from January to June 2008.”
The country is also said to be shaped like a chicken! Can you see it?
