University of Ljubljana (Theatre, Radio, Film and Television)




The Academy, which was established in 1945, is a theatre and film school within the University of Ljubljana. The teaching process at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels is tied to intensive artistic and research work, and is strongly based on individual instruction. Apart from developing practical skills and techniques, the Academy offers a wide range of academic knowledge. Teachers at the Academy are leading practitioners and researchers in theatre, radio, film and television in Slovenia. In pursuing its teaching, research, artistic and public work, it adheres to professional excellence, academic and creative freedom, autonomy and humanism.
The Academy consists of four departments: the Department of Theatre and Radio, the Department of Film and Television, the Department of Drama and the Centre for Theatre and Film Studies. The Centre is conceptualised as an information and documentation centre that includes comprehensive libraries of books and other visual materials. It also conducts research projects in the fields of performing arts and audio-visual media.
Each year, students present their practical work in a number of theatre productions, films and television dramas. Productions are open to the general public; films directed by students are usually shown on public television. Students also regularly take part in theatre and film festivals in Slovenia and abroad.
A total of twenty students in all disciplines enrol at the Academy each year. The number is limited mainly owing to a lack of space and other resources. Since 2000, the Academy has been participating in international student and professor exchange programmes such as Socrates-Erasmus and CEEPUS.
More than 400 actors, directors and dramaturgists graduated from the Academy since it opened its doors in 1945. Most of them today are at the creative centre of the Slovene performing and audio-visual arts.
In the academic year 2007/2008 the Academy will switch to revised study programmes based on the principles of the Bologna declaration. Other plans include the expansion of the Department of Theatre and Radio by adding a puppet theatre programme, and the addition of a cinema department with programmes in cinematography, editing, sound, production and screenwriting.
The Academy is located in downtown Ljubljana in the vicinity of theatres, museums, galleries and other urban cultural spaces. This enables students to follow theatre and film events and become familiar with the cultural tradition and vibrant pulse of the Slovenian capital.
