Each programme lasts one year and awards 60 credit points, in compliance with the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS).
The title awarded upon conclusion is Master of Social Work (MSW).
The programmes are currently organised as part-time studies only.
Part-time study carries one-third of the full-time load.
A programme will start if at least 15 students are enrolled. The maximum number of students admitted to a programme annually is 50. In case of excess five places are reserved for Slovenian students without Slovenian citizenship and foreign students.
Terms used on these pages
Since terminology varies from region to region, here are short definitions of our use of terms:
A programme is the organisational unit in which the student enrols, as well as a field of study. Every programme (except the supplementary one) is completed with a Master’s thesis.
A module is a narrower field of study within a programme. If a programme has modules, the student selects one. The modules of a programme usually intersect at the level of compulsory programme courses and/or optional courses.
A course is a teaching unit of programmes and modules. It consists of a number of contact hours, is typically passed with an essay or exam (or both), and awards a number of credit points. It may be compulsory for all students on the programme or only for students on a particular module. Technically, practice, field work, and writing Master's thesis count as such (compulsory) units. The optional course is chosen from the list(s) offered by the enrolled programme or the selected module. The elective course is chosen (on the basis of availability) from any other Master programme offered by the Faculty or, with the consent of the co-ordinator, by another faculty of the University of Ljubljana or another university in Slovenia or abroad.
The numbering of modules and courses serves presentation purposes and does not indicate any kind of precedence (except for Writing Master's Thesis which always comes last).
