1st October marks the start of the school year for university students in Slovenia - an entire month later than elementary and middle school pupils! Though the extra month of "vacation" is often quite the opposite for students, filled with last minute exams and projects instead of free time, there's still some disappointment in summer being over so fast. Oh, well.
This year, Slovenia's universities greeted more than 15,000 first-time students. Though there are some cuts to their funding, they won't present a bigger challenge for the universities, all of which are confident they won't have a problem handling their smaller budgets. In fact, many are introducing new programmes and courses to make up for the cuts in other areas.
Good luck, students!
