At the beginning of the second year of the Master course, the class is split into 3 equal groups and one third spends its semester in “Univerza v Ljubljani” (UL) in Ljubljana, Slovenia. The added-value value of this laboratory is synthesis of nanomaterials, carbon materials, post Li-ion batteries and upscaling.
University of Ljubljana
University of Ljubljana is the oldest and largest higher education and scientific research institution in Slovenia. University with its rich tradition was founded in 1919. It has more than 40.000 undergraduate and postgraduate students and employs approximately 5.600 higher education teachers, researchers, assistants and administrative staff in 23 faculties and three arts academies. The central building, all three academies and faculties are located in the centre. Some of the most recent and modern buildings were constructed on the outskirts of Ljubljana, giving the university and its students a ubiquitous presence in the city.

The University of Ljubljana has a consolidating role in the academic community of professors, researchers, students and other associates, and strives to establish its fine reputation both at home and around the world.
Faculty of Chemistry and Chemical Technology
It is difficult to imagine modern life without modern chemistry. Chemistry is a science which forms a bridge to biology, pharmacy and helps to better understand medicine. Without chemical engineering there could be no rational production of numerous products, which we normally take for granted.
Since 1994, chemistry studies have been organised within the framework of the University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Chemistry and Chemical Technology. Since 2009, the Faculty runs following programmes: three-year 1st cycle study programmes in Chemistry, Biochemistry, Chemical Engineering and Technical Safety, all leading to university diploma, and a three-year 1st cycle study professional programme in Chemical Technology.
The Faculty also runs two-year 2nd cycle study programmes in Chemistry, Chemical Education, Biochemistry, Chemical Engineering and Technical Safety and 3rd cycle study doctoral programme in Chemical Sciences.
Slovenia's capital and largest city is one of Europe's greenest and most liveable capitals; it was the European Commission's Green Capital of Europe in 2016. Car traffic is restricted in the centre, leaving the leafy banks of the emerald-green Ljubljanica River, which flows through the city's heart, free for pedestrians and cyclists. In summer, cafes set up terrace seating along the river; it almost feels like a nightly street party.
Slovenia's master of early-modern, minimalist design, Jože Plečnik, graced Ljubljana with beautiful bridges and buildings as well as dozens of urban design elements such as pillars, pyramids and lamp posts, which exist solely to make the city even prettier. Attractive cities are often described as 'jewel boxes', and here the name really fits. Some 50,000 students support an active clubbing scene, and Ljubljana's museums and restaurants are among the best in the country.
