Enrolment spaces in the programme, enrolment conditions and criteria for selection in case of limited enrolment

The number of enrolment spaces is 10.

Enrolment in the doctoral programme Textile Engineering, Graphic Communication and Textile Design is possible for candidates who:
a) have completed study programmes of the second level in the field of textile science, graphic and interactive communications, natural sciences and mathematics, design, technical or social and humanistic sciences;
b) have completed specialisation study programmes prior to the introduction of the Bologna Declaration and who had, before such specialisation, completed a professional study programme of the second level in the field of textile science, graphic and interactive communications, natural sciences and mathematics, design, technical or social and humanistic sciences. Additional obligations in individual areas in the range from 30 to 60 ECTS that shall be met by candidates will be determined by the Studies Commission of the Faculty of Natural Sciences;
c) have prior to the introduction of the Bologna Declaration completed a four-year university study programme in the field of textile science, graphic and interactive communications, natural sciences and mathematics, design or technical and social sciences;
d) have prior to the introduction of the Bologna Declaration completed the master’s programme or specialisation programme after having completed a four-year university study programme in the field of textile science, graphic and interactive communications, natural sciences and mathematics, design or technical and social sciences. Candidates
are credited with up to 60 ECTS for the study obligations;
e) have completed study programmes providing education for professions regulated by EU directives or other uniform master programmes that are credited 300 ECTS;
f) have completed study programmes at a university abroad in compliance with the prescribed conditions that apply to students in the Republic of Slovenia. The equivalence of the education acquired at a university abroad shall be established through the procedure for recognition of foreign higher education for admission to further study in accordance with Article 121 of the Statute of the University of Ljubljana.

If the number of candidates applying for the programme exceeds the number of enrolment spaces, candidates shall be selected according to their overall performance during their previous study as well as in scientific and professional fields as follows:

  • average mark of the exams of previous study (mark x 10 points),
  • mark for the diploma thesis and its defence (mark x 3 points),
  • a research paper evaluated by the criteria of the habilitation commission of the University of Ljubljana – proportional allocation of points is taken into account ((2 to 8) x 2 points),
  • the Prešeren award at the University of Ljubljana – proportional allocation of points is taken into account (10 points),
  • the Prešeren award at the faculty – proportional allocation of points is taken into account; if the same work is submitted as a diploma thesis, only half of the envisaged points shall be taken into account (6 points).

Recognition of knowledge and skills acquired prior to enrolment in the programme
Knowledge that has been acquired by the candidate through various types of study will be recognised if the content of such study corresponds to the content of the courses included in the doctoral study programme Textile Engineering, Graphic Communication and Textile Design. Decisions on recognition of the knowledge and skills acquired prior to enrolment in the programme shall be made by the Studies Commission of the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Engineering on the basis of the candidate’s written application, enclosed certificates and other documents that evidence the successfully acquired knowledge and the content of such knowledge.
In its decision-making, the Studies Commission will take into account the following criteria:

  • fulfilment of the conditions required to enrol in various types of study (required previous education for enrolment in the programme),
  • the extent of the previous study (the number of hours of the previous study in comparison with the number of hours of the study in which the candidate is enrolling),
  • suitability of the content of the previous study in comparison with the content of the study in which the student is enrolling.

The acquired knowledge can be recognised as a fulfilled obligation if the conditions for enrolment corresponded to the conditions required for enrolment in the doctoral study programme consisting of the courses of textiles, graphic and interactive communications and theory of textile design, if the previous study encompassed at least 75% of the extent of the course and if at least 75% of the content of the previous study correspond to the content of the course in which the candidate is enrolling. If the Commission establishes that the acquired knowledge may be recognised, the candidate’s knowledge shall be evaluated with an equal number of ECTS as the course in which the candidate is enrolling.

When recognising knowledge obtained before enrolment, the Studies Committee will take into account the following criteria:

  • Whether conditions for enrolling into a specific educational course are adequate (required prior education for starting the study programme);
  • Whether the scope of the completed educational course (the number of hours of prior education as compared to the scope of the subject in question) adequately compares with the recognised requirements,
  • Whether the areas covered by the prior education programme, which the applicant would like to have recognised, adequately compare with the subjects dealt with in the Faculty course.

Acquired knowledge and skills may be recognised as a completed study activity if the conditions for taking part in the educational programme were the same as for enrolling into the Textile Engineering, Graphic Communication and Textile Design doctoral programme, if the prior educational programme encompassed at least 75% of the scope of the subject and if at least 75% of its contents cover the same areas as the subject which the applicant would like to have recognised. In the event the Committee finds that the acquired knowledge can be recognised, it is granted the same number of ECTS points as awarded for the subject in question.
