Physics and astrophysics

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 for the maximal possible seven year span (until 30 Sep. 2022). In academic year 2019/2020, all of the Undergraduate study program »Physics and astrophysics« will be given at the premises of the UNG School of Science in Ajdovščina.

Materials science

Starting with academic year 2018/2019, we offer a new, interdisciplinary and research oriented second level master program Materials science. The program was created in collaboration between the University of Nova Gorica, National Institute for Chemistry and Jožef Stefan Institute and benefits from excellent research possbilities in physics and chemistry of materials, materials characterization as well as materials technology and the development of inovative products and services as well as protection of intelectual property. The program was accredited by the Slovenian Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education for the maximal possible seven year span (until 19 Nov. 2024).

Modern approach to teaching

At the School of Science we encourage and support the use of modern e-platforms for distant learning, such as MiTeam and UNG Moodle. These platforms enable the students and lecturers to exchange study materials in electronic form as well as provide virtual access to selected lectures.


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.
