University of Primorska Faculty of Mathematics, Natural Sciences and Information Technologies

Study at UP FAMNIT and scholarships



Our programmes are open to all.

Currently, 72 of our students come from abroad. Thus, almost 10% of all our students are international. Combined with exchange students, more than 10% international staff and more than 50 visiting professors and researchers annually, you will have a chance to truly feel the international beat of UP FAMNIT.


The Faculty offers courses at all three levels of higher education and conducts research in the fields of mathematics, computer science and information technology, and the natural sciences.

Horizons unlimited

More than numbers 

Our students greatly value a personal approach and our surveys show their high satisfaction with student-teacher relationships.

Cooperation with employers 

The faculty cooperates with companies in the region, the country and beyond. Students have the chance to experience real-life situations and gain practical knowledge under the mentorship of teachers and entrepreneurs.

Involvement in research work from the start 

The majority of our teaching staff conducts their research work at the Andrej Marušič Institute (UP IAM) where students from UP FAMNIT are encouraged to participate in scientific work in order to progress from theory to practice, get introduced to possible future work opportunities and develop their own research interests.

SCI Journal

University of Primorska and the Society of Mathematicians, Physicists and Astronomers of Slovenia publish the journal Ars Mathematica contemporanea which is indexed in the Science Citation Index (SCI).


Being a student in Slovenia brings you numerous benefits, including discounts on public transport and entrance fees to events or other activities; a special coupon system which can be used in restaurants across the country, significantly reducing the costs of living; and the possibility of working through a programme called ‘Student Work’. The latter allows temporary and part-time work for students, who can easily find a flexible job in different areas.

Study in Slovenia is even more convenient for students from European Union Member States, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Kosovo, and the Republics of Macedonia and Serbia, since they do not pay any tuition fees, while part-time and PhD students pay the University tuition, which is very low in comparison to others worldwide.

On the Slovenian coast, students can benefit from many sports and cultural activities, parties and trips which are organised by several student organisations. These also organise welcome or orientation weeks to help international students get to know each other and settle in. The University has a strong tutoring system, whereby students at most of the faculties assist other students in solving everyday problems. In addition, everyone can choose to stay in a student dormitory or in a private apartment, student dorms being the cheaper option.
