Changing the Programme of Study

Changing the study programme applies to all first-degree study programmes (single-subject, double-subject) at the Faculty of Arts.

Changing the programme is possible within the framework of the study programmes of the same degree, i.e., the first degree.

Students can change from non-Bologna university study programmes to first-degree study programmes until the study programmes approved before 11 June 2004 are carried out.

Changing the programme is possible within the framework of those study programmes:

  • which ensure the acquisition of comparable competences at the end of the study;
  • where, according to the criteria for the recognition, at least half of the obligations arising from the European Transfer Credit System can be acknowledged from the first study programme relating to obligatory subjects of the new study programme.

Regarding the extent of recognized obligations from the first study programme, the student can enrol in the same or in the higher year of the new study programme. In both cases, the student must fulfil the criteria for the enrolment in the first year of the new study programme.

Enrolment in the first year of the new study programme does not mean changing the programme, although certain obligations the student fulfilled in the first study programme are recognized. In this case, the candidate must fulfil criteria for the enrolment in the first year in accordance with the law and study programme. 

The following is recognized when changing the programme:

  • comparable study obligations the student fulfilled in the first study programme;
  • informally gained comparable knowledge.

Previously gained knowledge is proved by suitable documents.

A student can enrol in the higher year of the new study programme if s/he has obtained the number of credit points necessary for the progression and if those credit points fulfil the requirements for the progression to a higher year of the valid study programme. These credit points should be recognized in the course of recognition due to changing the programme.

The Faculty’s competent body takes a decision concerning the candidate’s application for changing the study programme based on the Department’s proposal and following the procedure determined by the Statute of the University of Ljubljana.
