Basic information about the programme

  1. Level: bachelor's study programme
  2. Duration: 3 years (6 semesters)
  3. Mode of study: full-time
  4. Language of study: Slovene, English
  5. ECTS: 180 credits
    ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) - is an European system for translation and accumulation of points/results. This system was created for recording the academic work of students during an educational programme or course. One academic year corresponds to 60 ECTS points, which is about 1500-1800 study hours.

About the programme

Undergraduate study program "Physics and astrophysics" is in its essence research-oriented. The courses aim to provide all the general theoretical and experimental knowledge in a broad spectrum of physics fields, required for research work, and to gradually involve the students in actual research. In addition to hands-on experience with practical physics problems in student laboratories, students have the opportunity to become involved in actual research work in five state-of-the-art research laboratories: Center for Astrophysics and Cosmology, Center for Atmospheric Research, Laboratory of Organic Matter Physics, Materials Research Laboratory and Laboratory for Quantum Optics. Their scientific results rank between top scientific achievements of Slovenian scientists, with publications in prestigious scientific journals such as Nature and Science. Under supervision, students obtain hands-on experience with research equipment, either remotely, at international observatories such as the Pierre Auger or the emerging Cherenkov Telescope Array, or by using locally available research infrastructure at the School of Science.

The curriculum of the undergraduate study program "Physics and astrophysics" aims to deliver the essential theoretical knowledge as early as possible, providing the basis for research activities. In addition to basic mathematical and physical contents, students get familiar with experimental methods that are used in physical laboratory in their first year. In the second and third year, the courses increasingly focus on specific core areas of astrophysics and solid state physics, and are complemented by research work. Students complete the program with a Bachelor seminar in the third year. Graduates have acquired competences and skills to further specialize through our master program "Physics and astrophysics".

Educational and professional goals and competences:

The objective of the undergraduate study program "Physics and astrophysics" is to provide the students with fundamental theoretical and experimental knowledge and the initial hands-on research experience, enabling them to be active in supervised research work, and to pursue master studies in the fields of astrophysics or solid state physics.

General competences acquired through the program are the development of scientific intuition, the ability to investigate natural phenomena, to apply scientific methodologies, to develop scientific communication in the English language, to study and work in international environment, to acquire and combine data from multiple sources, to communicate scientific contents and results, and to adapt to different experimental situations.

Subject-specific competences acquired through the program include mastering the physical approach to problem solving, attaining knowledge and understanding of the fundamental laws of nature, management of modern information systems and experimental facilities, the abilities to link computerized data acquisition and data processing, as well as to produce simple numerical models of real systems in nature.
