UNG Student athlete testimonial: Matevž Rupnik, Alpine skier and student of Physics and Astrophysics

“I’m Matevž Rupnik and I’m currently completing my first year of studies of Physics and Astrophyisics at the University of Nova Gorica. I’m also a professional Alpine skier and due to this I’m frequently absent form lectures and tutorials. But despite my low attendance of classes, the University of Nova Gorica enables me to study at a high-quality study programme simultaneously. Besides that, the University was also my supporter in my competing at the Winter Universiade in Krasnoyarsk 2019, which was an unforgettable experience. I actually very interested in physics and astrophysics and I also ski with the same amount of enthusiasm, so I’m really glad that with the help of the University of Nova Gorica I can successfully combine my two lifelong passions.
