General information on higher education
The tertiary education in Slovenia consists of short-cycle higher vocational education and higher education institutions. The Government of the Republic of Slovenia decides every year which study programmes and how many enrolment places are financed for regular studies.
National external quality assurance requirements
Accreditation and external evaluation of higher education quality is compulsory for public and private higher education institutions (including higher vocational colleges) and study programmes.
Initial accreditation of study programmes
Every year at least 2% of study programmes are included in a sample by the national QA agency to be externally reviewed. Initial study programmes may be granted accreditation for five years.
(initial and re-) Accreditation of higher education institutions
is granted for five years.
Cross-border quality assurance
In Slovenia higher education institutions may not choose among EQAR-registered agencies.
European Approach for Quality Assurance of Joint Programmes
In Slovenia the European Approach is available to higher education institutions under certain conditions.
The European Approach can only be used for programmes where all partner higher education institutions involved are (institutionally) accredited by EQAR-registered agencies (see Law on Higher Education, article 33.b and 33.c).
