Description and goals


The goal of the School of Science of the University of Nova Gorica is to promote the research oriented study of physics. We offer bachelor and master course in Physics and Astrophysics, both being accredited by the Slovenian Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education.

In the academic year 2017/2018, the courses for the first year of the Undergraduate study program »Physics and astrophysics« will be given in Ljubljana, at the Institute of Metals and Technology (IMT), Lepi pot 11, 1000 Ljubljana. The new location was formally approved by the Slovenian Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education on June 15, 2017. The second and the third year students will, as their work is related to the UNG research facilities, as before pursue their studies in Ajdovščina.


The bachelor program is since 2007 financially supported by the government of the Republic of Slovenia which directly covers the tuition for citizens of Slovenia and other EU countries, as well as for the citizens of Serbia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Monte Negro and Macedonia. The master program is not financially supported and is subject to tuition fee. However, students can apply for different grants, which could cover the school fee and, for foreign students, also living expenses. We incurage interested students to contact us to discuss this possibilities with them. Both programs are registered in the evidence of the Ministry of Education, Science and Sport, which enables the students to claim their social status and benefits according to Slovenian law.
