During the study you will meet a number of tourism companies in Slovenia and abroad and visit many tourist sights.
The internship is a part of all study programmes at the FT. You cannot learn about tourism in the classroom only, you have to experience it. This is the reason why all of our students of professional, academic and masters study programme have the opportunity to do internship in the concluding year of study. This makes our faculty special and unique among Slovenian faculties.
Professional, academic and masters study programmes, full-time and part-time mode, are free of charge for EU nationals. Study process takes place in Brežice, one of the most visited tourist locations in Slovenia, as it takes the fourth place in number of tourist overnight stays – following Piran, Ljubljana and Bled.
Study process at the masters study is carried out in the afternoon and is thus adapted to all students who are already employed. Study materials are uploaded into the e-classroom Moodle and you can access them at home too. You also submit your papers there. Via e-classroom you are always in touch with the lecturers, tutors and other students.
