Here are basic instructions for the enrolment for the Creole programme:

The number of places planned for the CREOLE full-time master's programme is 6 at each partner institution (which totals 36 altogether; University of Ljubljana usually enrols 6 students); part-time study is not anticipated.


To enrol the CREOLE master’s programme, it is required to have completed successfully a bachelor's degree (180 ECTS) in humanities or social sciences. Admission requirements are also complied by those who have completed equivalent education abroad.


Students who have completed a bachelor's degree in any programme of technology or natural sciences, have to gain additional 28 ECTS of the fundamental module from the Ethnology and Cultural Anthropology BA programme:


 - Methodology in Ethnology and Cultural Anthropology (6 ECTS);

 - Anthropological Theories (5 ECTS);

 - Ethnographic Research (6 ECTS);

 - Theories of Culture, Way of Life and Identities (3 ECTS);

 - Ethnology of Europe (3 ECTS);

 - Ethnology of Africa, Ethnology of Americas, Ethnology of Asia or Ethnology of Australia and Oceania (the student selects one of these; each of them totalling 5 ECTS).


Students who have completed four-year university programme in Ethnology and Cultural Anthropology may enrol in the CREOLE master's programme. When doing so, their already completed coursework may be recognised up to 60 ECTS.


Students who have completed four-year university programme in humanities or social sciences may enrol in the CREOLE master's programme. When doing so, their already completed master’s coursework may be recognised up to 30 ECTS.


Students who have completed any other university programmes before introduction of Bologna-adjusted programme, wishing to enrol in the CREOLE programme, have to complete the coursework stated previously with regard to the students who have completed bachelor's degree in any study of technology or natural sciences.

You will use four different web-pages before you will complete the procedure for the enrolment.

All the needed information about the content of the programme at University of Ljubljana is available at web-page of the Department of Ethnology and Cultural Anthropology which is the partner in the joint program. Here you will get general information about the programme which was accredited in Slovenia, the timetable of lectures and the description of courses and requirements.

Information for enrolment procedure and on-line enrolment is located at the web-page of the Faculty of Arts, while information about exchange and study programs at partner universities is available at the main web-page of the programme Creole at the University of Vienna.


The enrollment procedure is two-step: registration for the enrollment and enrollment. For the citizens of the Republic of Slovenia and other EU countries, the registration is open until September 1. For the citizens of all other countries (i.e. non-EU), registration is open until July 15.

Before submitting the forms and papers, please double-check if you have all necessary forms and information ready:

1. Common enrolment form for the program Creole, available at the web-page of the coordinator, University of Vienna.

2. CV (short biography; half a page).

3. Confirmation of your previous study (BA diploma). In the case you need recognition of the diploma, you should apply for the recognition early enough to have it ready in September (if only possible, no later than June; the nostrification process should not take more than two months - here you can find further information in English).

4. Confirmation of the proficiency in English or a prove of previous study programme in English.

5. A letter of recommendation. A letter of recommendation by a mentor from previous study programme. It does not have a required form.

6. Draft of the study plan. Preferences for the Creole pillars and elective courses; plan of field research.

7. Motivation letter. Explain your personal motivation for the study and, especially, your expectations in doing fieldwork; as well as your previous knowledge of the field of social anthropology. A short description of eventual topics and regions of interest; options for mobility with two partner institutions named, the first one as a priority, the second one as possible other option, and preferable advisors at home and visiting institution.

Everything else you will accomplish with the on-line registration/application for the programme at the Faculty of Arts. Online application at the Faculty of Arts is essential for the enrolment.

Those who are not citizens of EU and will pay the tuition fee will have to fulfil the form with the statement of its payment.

But note:
Parts of the program require fieldwork practice and trips/excursions to particular locations. The university cannot cover the costs for these trips. These costs are variable, and may reach several hundred EUR per year.
