Slovenia’s higher education system has a twin-track structure: professionally oriented (vocational) higher education and academic higher education.
Higher vocational education is provided by higher vocational colleges that offer two-year vocational education at the sub-degree level (short-cycle, ISCED 5B). The Slovenian Higher Vocational Education Act from 2004 places this type of education within the tertiary education area; students obtain 120 credits and can continue their professional studies at the degree-level.
Academic higher education is offered by public or private universities and single higher education institutions (not beloning to any university). Universities and single faculties can offer both academic and professional study programmes, while professional colleges offer only professional study programmes.
