Recognition of foreign education

Recognition of foreign education is regulated by the Act on Assessment and Recognition of Education with regard to international and bilateral agreements concluded between the Republic of Slovenia and other countries.

A candidate who has finished his or her studies in a foreign country (not Slovenia) and would like to continue education in the Slovenian higher education institution is obliged to acquire a decision on the recognition of the foreign education, if they have not obtained one already. Higher education institutions are the competent bodies for the education recognition procedure.

The recognition procedure is a part of the enrolment procedure. The candidate submits the recognition application together with the study enrolment application (on the online eVŠ portal).

For more information please refer to the University of Ljubljana website Recognition of foreign education.
