Studies and sports hand in hand – Invitation to professional athletes to study at the University of Nova Gorica

At the University of Nova Gorica we are aware of the significance of a healthy and active lifestyle and of the needs of athletes to obtain quality education. Strict study regulations have have cut short the sports career of many a promising athlete. On the other hand, there are many athletes who manage to study and at the same time keep on with their sports careers, which helps them become mature and responsible individuals. In order to encourage athletes to take such a career path, we have decided to offer athletes a special scheme of studies, tailored to their needs and helping them manage both their sports careers and studies.

We are the first university in Slovenia to offer the status of athlete to all athletes who are registered as competitors and who actively take part in competitions. Acquiring the status of an athlete as defined by the National Olympic Committee is not a prerequisite for obtaining the status of athlete at UNG.

Studying in small groups, an excellent professor – student ratio, and opportunities for distance learning enable us flexibility in terms of offering athletes favourable conditions of studies and tailoring the studies to the athletes’ needs.

Studies are tailored to the specific needs of individual students–athletes. The modifications to a certain extent depend on the selected study programme (for instance, the amount of mandatory practical classes) as well as to the needs of an individual athlete.

The mild climate of Gorika region offers favourable conditions for training in winter as well, if compared to other parts of Slovenia, where outdoor sports activities may be difficult to carry out in winter. The excellent location of the town of Nova Gorica, near the hills and, on the other hand, the Adriatic coast, and the town’s quality infrastructure offer opportunities for practising various sports disciplines.

UNG closely cooperates with local sports clubs and associations and thus helps promote the importance of education in sports.
