Studying abroad as part of a degree will give the students an opportunity to gain new academic perspectives, establish an international network, return motivated and independent, improve their language skills and discover a new culture. Applications are welcome from students registered at any of the FD’s Erasmus or bi-lateral partners. Students should check with their home institutions to see if there is an agreement in place. Undergraduate students may apply for a mobility exchange during either Autumn or Spring semester. Students should be nominated first through the International department at the sending institution. Applications should be made to one of the following FD departments:

  • Interior Design
  • Visual Communications
  • Fashion and Textiles Design
  • Design Management

If you are an exchange student through Erasmus programme, you will not have to pay any semester or tuition fee to the Faculty of Design.

Grading system

The students’ academic performance is in general assessed as either Passed, Failed of Not Attended. Grades for examinations are awarded according to a graded scale from 10 (highest) to 5 (lowest), with 6 as the minimum pass grade.

Courses are measured in credits according to the ECTS standard. The full-time workload for one academic year is 60 ECTS and for one semester 30 ECTS.


English is a commonly used language in Slovenia. The majority of our teachers studied abroad, so they know how to adjust the program and knowledge for the Erasmus+ incoming students. We are constantly participating in international projects, workshops taught by foreign guest lecturers, so English is quite often used and there will be no problem for students to integrate.

For those who are interested in learning Slovene language (Erasmus Intensive Language Course – EILC) they can apply at
