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



UP FAMNIT offers undergraduate and postgraduate study programmes in various fields, i.e. mathematics, computer science, natural sciences and biotechnical sciences.

The European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) is applied to all study programmes, which makes it possible to take elective courses. Students can select courses from within their chosen study programme, from study programmes offered by other university faculties and member institutions, or from other higher education institutions in Slovenia and abroad.

Studies are based on modern teaching methods and are carried out in various forms, such as lectures, seminars, exercises (field work, laboratories), tutorials and independent study, supported by information and communication technology. Teaching and learning processes are based on proactive methods that encourage students to critically evaluate their acquired knowledge and skills.

The Faculty focuses on the integration of education and research and includes students in research activities of UP FAMNIT and the Andrej Marušič Institute research centre, also a member of the University of Primorska.

In the academic year 2023/24 the Faculty offers seven undergraduate, seven Master’s and six Doctoral study programmes. At undergraduate level (first Bologna cycle) the Faculty offers six academic study programmes and one higher education professional study programme which last three years (180 ECTS-credits) and enable graduates to seek employment or continue their studies in Master’s study programmes (second Bologna cycle). The postgraduate level (second and third cycle) offers Master’s (two years, i.e. 120 ECTS-credits) and doctoral (three or four years, i.e. 180 or 240 ECTS-credits) study programmes.
