Requirements for study on Faculty of Medicine UL

Changing the programme of study from old programme Medicine/Dental Medicine to MA in Medicine/Dental Medicine

With transition from old programmes to the new all completed years of the old programme are recognized. Despite the differences in study programmes students can progress to the next year of study if all requirements from the old programme are met (except for elective courses). When courses in the old and the new programme differ greatly the Commission for Student Questions sets bridging examinations and time in which students have to sit the exam. If not stated otherwise students have to pass the exams until the enrolment in the next year of study. If students do not pass the exams they cannot enroll in the next year of study and cannot exceptionally advance or repeat the year.

An example: a student takes a year off in year 3 of the old programme. When he passes all the exams from the previous years he can enroll in the year 4 of the new programme. The course Pharmacology is in year 4 of the old programme and in year 3 of the new programme; the student must elect this course when enrolling in year 4 and pass an exam until enrollment in year 5.
For transition from the old programme to the new the student must hand in a transfer application by the last day of autumn exam period.
If a student transfers to the new programme without meeting the requirements in the old programme he must repeat the year. In case the student already repeated the year before, the only possibility is exceptional repeating for which a student has to provide suitable proofs by Act 153 of Statute of University of Ljubljana.

The transfer is possible regardless of the number of passed exams or obtained ECTS in the old programme if studying full-time.
In case a student repeated a year or took a year off before transferring he has to pass all the exams from the old programme, even though these exams were not compulsory to enroll in the next year of the old study programme. In both cases only enrolling in the next year is possible.
In case the student in the old programme advanced without all the requirements he has to pass the missing exam before transferring.

In case of repeating the year while transferring to the new programme the student has the same rights of progressing to the next year as the first time enrolled students. The student can progress to the next year with 54 ECTS and has the right to exceptional enrolment. This applies only for the year after the transfer. However, in the new programme a student needs to obtain 60 ECTS to advance to the next year.
Elective courses that a student passed in the old programme are recognized. In case the student did not obtain the prescribed number of elective courses or ECTS he has to select extra courses of his own choice in the sum of 36 ECTS until graduating. The courses transfer as shown below. The courses that were evaluated only as pass/fail do not transfer with numeral marks in the new programme.
