22 January 2016 - 23 January 2016

Present yourself to 16,000 visitors at the Slovenian Education and Career Fair – 8th Informativa. The 8th education fair will take place in Slovenia January 2016, exactly two weeks before the national open-door day at schools, faculties, and universities across Slovenia.

Reasons to Attend

Informativa brings together Slovenian and foreign institutions (high schools, vocational colleges, faculties and universities, language courses, lifetime learning programmes etc.) with scholarship givers and first employment officers. This way it creates a perfect opportunity for young people to find all information linked with their decisions on further education and vocational training in a single place.

Market Overview

Slovenia offers many opportunities to those looking for education at higher level. Higher education institutions are universities, faculties, art academies and professional colleges. Slovenian students also decide to gain students exchange experiences. Each year there are more Slovenian students who decide to study abroad to locations including Austria, Germany, Italy, the United Kingdom, the USA etc.

The Slovenian school system has seen a number of changes in recent years, aiming to ensure that as many people as possible realise their right to education, better than before, thus achieving a higher educational level.

Fair Outline

Differently from Slovenian open-door day, when university and secondary school students can visit a maximum of three educational programmes in a year, the Slovenian Education and Career Fair allows students to get to know practically all programmes in one or two days.

As Informativa takes place before the national open-door day, young visitors have enough time to decide what programmes and relative three schools they should visit few weeks later and hopefully have an easier decision when turning in their school enrolment application in March.

Informativa’s second mission is also to prepare a unique one-day event in Slovenia, called Business Informativa, bringing into one single place companies, educational institutions and other organisations active in the field of business and professional education, training, counselling and publishing.

Slovenian Education and Career Fair 2015 was organized in collaboration with organisations such as High School Student Organization of Slovenia, Student Organization of Slovenia, Institute of the Republic of Slovenia for Vocational Education and Training, Slovene Human Resources Development and Scholarship Fund and many others.
