Criteria for recognition of knowledge and skills acquired before admission to the programme
The knowledge the candidate has previously acquired through various forms of education may be recognised if it is compatible with the teaching contents of the Chemical Engineering programme. The recognition of knowledge and skills acquired prior to admission depends on the decision of the FKKT Senate or a body named by the Faculty’s Senate. The applicants should submit a written application and provide certificates and other documents as evidence of successfully acquired knowledge and adequate contents.
Previously acquired knowledge can be recognized if the admission conditions were similar to the admission conditions of Chemical Engineering, if previous education included minimum 75% of the extent of the subject and minimum 75% of the contents of the subject to be recognized. If the Commission approves and recognizes previously acquired education, the subject is allocated the same number of ECTS points as the subject in the Chemical Engineering programme.
*the subject can be chosen as general elective subject in the 1st or 2nd year but only once in the entire period of studying.
** the subject can be chosen as professional elective subject in the 2nd or 3rd year but only once in the entire period of studying.
P – lectures; S – seminar; V – exercises; D – other forms of pedagogical work (e.g. project work); ECTS – credit points according to the European Credit Transfer System (1 ECTS equals 30 hours of student load)
Course progression requirements.
Requirements for progression to the higher year
To be admitted into the higher year, the student needs to have the teacher’s signature certifying enrolment and attendance for all subjects of the previous year. In addition the following progression requirements need to be met:
For progression into the second year, the candidate has to achieve 60 credit points.
For progression into the third year, the candidate has to pass all the exams from the first year (60 CP) and achieve 60 credit points in the second year.
The FKKT Study Commission may, according to the Faculty’s rules, exceptionally approve progression to a higher year if in the previous year the student has achieved minimum 30 credit points according to ECTS, and if the student can provide justifiable reasons for it . As justifiable are considered the reasons listed in the Statute of the University of Ljubljana.
The student may repeat the year if he/she has achieved 20 credit points from those required for a particular year. During the course of the studies, the student may repeat the year once or change the study programme once due to non fulfilment of requirements in the previous study programme.
According to the law and Statute, after the third year the student may be granted a prolongation of student’s status by a maximum of one year if he/she can provide justifiable reasons and has met all the requirements of the first two years.
Consultation and guidance in selecting elective subjects will be provided by mentors and tutors in a particular study year.
