Health Care and Insurance

Slovenia has a world class health care system, and health insurance at reasonable rates is available for foreign students.

Possibilities for grants 

Foreign students can apply for grants at Slovene Human Resources and Scholarship Fund (http://www.sklad-kadri.si/en/) or European Union, e.g. within Marie Curie Actions (http://www.cordis.lu/fp6/mobility.htm).

We also recommend that students apply for accomodation in Dom podiplomcev Ljubljana (http://www.dompodiplomcev.si/kje_se_nahajamo_eng.html), which usually closed the application in the first half of September.
