- ALL NETWORK PARTNERS ARE ACCEPTING INCOMING STUDENTS IN 2017/18! - see link for details who/to where has priority but applications from elsewhere are also welcome (we can take into account in case of unused by priority) 

APPLICATIONS FOR WINTER SEMESTER 2017/18 ARE NOW OPEN - DEADLINE JUNE 15!

Students of partnering institutions can join the Universty Nova Gorica School of Arts primrily within the MAP - Master of Media Arts and Practices master programme, where currently the focus is on Contemporary Art PracticesAnimation, Film, and New Media. We are open to interdisciplinary and cross-filed artistic practice, research and productions. More on the MAP programme and location for international students: http://au.ung.si/map-app

Usually, studies in the MAP programme combine a central topical and/or methodological focus with peripheral skill-related studies and experiences. On the one side students will work on own project(s) with consultation by relevant mentors and peer students, according to their field of interest. And on the other hand, short courses (that will be agreed prior or upon arrival) support the student's development in terms of content, technique or conceptual competence. Often (but not only) the latter is done through intensive production workshops which include group work, where students take on different roles, according to their profile and academic motivation. After a 2 or 3 month stay the student will be expected to display work at the semester/annual show.

As for the work style and atmosphere at the school, check out some of the numerous picture galleries on our Facebook, and/or our Vimeo, further links down below!

I.2  SUMMER SEMESTER UPCOMING

The summer semester might be a bit calmer than the winter semester,  with short intensive course runs in some Carrier Modules, and some more focus on final annual productions. 

A New Media Studio is planned, it is a post-graduate course, on either performance or interactive media installations, theoretical readings&discussions, storytelling, project management etc., depending on the student cohort and profile, lead by prof. pETER Purg,. The short courses are often linked to a basic/intro (BA) weekly course on New Media that you can join in Mar-May (usually held in English), it is a precedent to an advanced MA-level project course-workshop in interdisciplinary NewMedia-Practice.  Assoc. prof. pETER Purg, Phd is in winter semester also giving a comprehensive "Master Thesis Preparation" course. ( He is the coordinator of the present ADRIART.CE CEEEPUS network: peter.purg@ung.si )

 In Film there are (in summer semester) regular meetings/consultations/lectures with the Slovenian film director Janez Burger, in winter semester a BA-level weekly course with director Boštjan Vrhovec is possible. Photography is currently focussing on BA-level studies, but if you are interested in interdisciplinary aspects (to any of the other carrier modules), we could look for intersections also on MA level: in Contemporary Art Practices professor Rene Rusjan is the carrier module leader (see her winter-semester course offers above).

Some useful links

the university academic calendar (we only have winter and summer semesters, there are no lectures in July/August/September apart from occasional production workshops with partner universities)

scholarship rates for Slovenia https://www.ceepus.info/public/nco/ncoinformation_main.aspx?Country=SI 

is done directly through ceepus system https://ceepus.info/login/register_1.aspx. Entrance exam does not apply for exchange, so you just have to write a short motivation letter with a cv/bio and preferably also (link to) some works, portfolio or alike. Here the instructions for Ceepus system application (if link does not work, please copy/paste it into browser) http://www.cmepius.si/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/Kako-se-prijavim-za-CEEPUS-mobilnost.pdf.


Food coupons & public transport 

Slovenia is kind of special in that - you can buy subsidized (cheaper) coupons for meals in chosen restaurants (as a student here you are also entitled to that). it is not for free, but definitely is much cheaper. Nova Gorica/Gorica are twin towns, on Slovenian/Italian border. The university main building is in Nova Gorica on Slovenian side, the school is on Italian side. Student homes are in Nova Gorica (2km from the school), also the food coupons are for Nova Gorica. Public transport in Nova Gorica is free, in Gorica and the trans Nova Gorica/Gorica about one euro per ride (the transport on Italian side can not be paid by CEEPUS..). If you come and have the chance we highly recommend bringing a bike :)
