Warm welcome to all SEB LU Freshmen!

15.09.2020Comments are closed.

Dear freshmen,

the beginning of the academic year is irresistibly approaching and we are so happy to share all the excitement with you! You will soon enter student life and we are proud that you will take this step at the School of Economics and Business, University of Ljubljana (the SEB LU). Of course, due to the epidemic this year, everything will be a little bit different than we were used to, but there is no reason to worry. In March 2020, when the button “pause” posed a challenge to the whole world, we moved the entire study process to an online environment, so that students were able to continue their studies without interruption. They’ve made it, you will make it and together we will succeed!

We will organize a hybrid Orientation day for all first year undergraduate programme University degree programme in Economics and Business – English track students on 1 October 2020. We are expecting you live in the Large Hall at 11.30 a.m. For those of you who won’t be able to join us live, you will have the opportunity to follow the event online. Pre-registration is mandatory for those who will attend the event live at our school (registration is now closed). For all of you who did not register we kindly ask you to follow the event online. A few days before the event you will receive all the necessary access instructions.

The English-speaking event will provide information on international student-specific topics:

  • organising your life in Slovenia,
  • the study system at the SEB LU,
  • the student life in Ljubljana, etc.

However, this year’s event will also focus on the “new normality” we are currently dealing with: studying in an online environment, rules that are wise to be followed from the comfort of your home armchair, your digital identity and everything that will be happening at the school in general.

During the first week, you will also get acquainted with the activities that take place at the SEB LU, University and the associations that work under the auspices of the SEB LU. They will take place in the first two weeks from 1 to 6 October in the atrium (in case of nice weather) or at the foyer between Large and Small Hall (in case of bad weather). We invite you to join our library, your favourite sports activity and become part of one of the associations, thus developing your skills and potential outside of your studies.

One day before our Orientation day (at the SEB LU), on Wednesday, 30 September 2020 at 10 a.m., University of Ljubljana will organise a special Online presentation for international students, of all faculties. The event will provide an opportunity to obtain useful first-hand information about studying at the University of Ljubljana and about living in Ljubljana, such as: health insurance, registration of residence permits, accommodation in Student Dormitory, scholarship opportunities, subsidized meals, public transport and career services. Students will also receive detailed information about Year Plus. For more information, please visit this website and apply here.

 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

  • Physical Education

For the freshmen, physical education is compulsory. This year it will take place in three ways: in gyms, in nature and through the online platform Zoom. Because we honestly believe that the internet cannot replace live mutual contact, physical education teachers will introduce themselves to you live and answer all your questions. You can meet them from Thursday, 1 October, to Friday, 2 October 2020, between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m., in the school’s atrium (in case of fine weather) or in the lobby between Large and Small Halls (in case of bad weather). Registration is expected to take place electronically; more information is to follow soon.

CEK is expecting freshmen at the stand this year as well, where you can sign up for the library and thus avoid the crowds. You can find out all about our e-resources and trainings and buy a package of study materials. Visit us between the Small and Large Halls from 2 October onwards at the ‘Blue Barrel of Knowledge’ (from 2 to 6 October, between 9 a.m. and 12 noon).

Career Centre at SEB LU is here to help you with your studies, career planning and personal development so that you can pave your way in the business world. Together, we resolve dilemmas of adequacy of your studies; we help you find information about internship possibilities in Slovenia and abroad as well as employment and direct contact with employers.

Main activities within Career Centre are:

  • Organizing workshops, lectures, and other educational programs in cooperation with companies;
  • Career consulting;
  • Informing about available jobs, internships as well as events and new developments on the job market.

Each year the Career Centre organizes the career fair “Delo mene išče” (The job is looking for me), where you have the possibility to meet employers first hand. Due to the Covid situation the event will be organized ONLINE.

  • Schedules

Schedules for winter semester 2020/21 are published on Student-net. To access Student-net you’ll need your digital identity.
