FELU is amazing in Ljubljana, worth studying. Student benefits in Slovenia are enormous, also for foreigns.
Quality education
Anonymous rated 3 out of 5 stars
I learned a lot, although, with different organisation and grading system or logic, I think I would've learned even more. The professor - student relations are sometimes affecting the grade (too much), which should be eliminated through some control mechanism or re-structuring of exam system.
