Language of instruction and supervision

The language of instruction and supervision is Slovene if the student is a Slovene speaker. If not, the language of instruction and supervision is English.
A student can apply for writing his/her PhD thesis in a foreign language when submitting his/her PhD topic. In this case the PhD thesis proposal must also be written in that foreign language and translated into Slovene.
The PhD thesis can be written in the English language (acc. to art. 111 of the Statute of the University of Ljubljana), provided there are sufficient reasons for doing so (e.g. a foreign student, supervisor, co-supervisor or member of the exam board; possible subsequent publication of the thesis as a monograph with a foreign publisher). The PhD thesis can also be written in any given foreign language as part of that foreign language or literature doctoral study.
The permission to write the PhD thesis in a foreign language is granted by the Senate of the University of Ljubljana acting on the proposal of the Senate of the Faculty of Arts.
The PhD thesis in a foreign language must be supplemented by a comprehensive summary in the Slovene language, which must not be shorter than 10% of the complete text of the thesis. The summary must be written using proper Slovene scientific terminology of the given discipline.
