In order to take full advantage of its favourable littoral and geo-traffic position within Europe and enable efficient operation of the traffic system, Slovenia will need more and more highly qualified experts that will master the theory of systems and management theory, exploitation of traffic infrastructure and transport means, traffic technology and organization of all modes of transport, transport logistics, the economy and safety of traffic, and the rules and trends of the future development of traffic as an integral part of social, economic, and sustainable development.

Following the requirements of the Bologna Reform of higher education, the Faculty of Maritime Studies and Transport of the University of Ljubljana adopted the system of studies based on the 3+2+3 pattern (three years of the first-cycle professional or academic study programme, two years of the second-cycle or master’s professional degree programme, and three years of the third-cycle or doctoral study programme). The following study programmes have been approved by the Council for Higher Education of the Republic of Slovenia:

1.      First-cycle professional study programmes with 180 ECTS last three years (approved by the Council for Higher Education of the Republic of Slovenia on 11 July and 5 October, 2007):
