On Friday, 21 September 2018, the Conference of Four National University Rectors (the University of Ljubljana, the University of Maribor, the University of Primorska, and the University of Nova Gorica) took place at the University of Nova Gorica. The event was held under the chairmanship of the Rector of the University of Nova Gorica, Professor Danilo Zavrtanik.
During the conference, among other things, the investment in university infrastructure and the payments for medical students’ internships were discussed. It should be noted that at present universities must pay medical institutions for student internships, so students are forced to go abroad. The rectors also determined the criteria for accepting new conference participants.
In the nearest time, the heads of the universities expect for a meeting with the new Prime Minister and the Minister of Education, Science and Sport of Slovenia.
