Main objectives of the study programme

To offer the technical and non-technical aspects of the field of multimedia and their mutual synergy, specifically:

  • provide systemic knowledge in the fields of telecommunications and computer science,
  • train students to analyse problems, search relevant sources and critically assess information obtained,
  • train students to plan and implement multimedia solutions, both in technical and user aspects,
  • provide knowledge in the area of software development,
  • provide knowledge in the areas of analysing, discovering and visualising data and
    information,
  • provide knowledge in the area of analysing and processing multimedia content,
  • train students for teamwork with experts in technical and non-technical fields, including the capacity for active communication in written or verbal form.

Providing high-quality knowledge in the field is a directly verifiable objective linked to the student’s learning outcomes. The successful completion of studies serves as a basis for realistically assessing attainment of the objectives and outcomes. Within just a few years of the first generation of master’s degree holders completing their studies, it will also be possible to verify directly the employability of those graduating from this study programme.

  • ability to plan and implement multimedia systems from the user standpoint, including user experience,
  • familiarisation with modern methods of software development in multimedia systems,
  • familiarisation with the basic properties of designing information and visual communication,
  • ability to understand data and extract knowledge from data,
  • ability to analyse various types of multimedia content,
  • ability to acquire knowledge from complementary technical fields and the business sector and understand it.
  • Criteria for recognising knowledge and skills acquired prior to enrolment

Knowledge which is suitable in content and scope to the educational content of courses in the second-cycle master’s study programme in Multimedia can be recognised in the education process. Recognition of knowledge and skills acquired prior to enrolment is decided upon by the Committee for Study Affairs of FRI and the Study Committee of FE, on the basis of a written application from the student, enclosing certificates and other documents demonstrating successfully acquired knowledge and the substance of such knowledge, and in accordance with the Rules on the procedure and criteria for recognising informally acquired knowledge and skills, adopted by the UL Senate on 29 May 2007.

  • Requirements for progression through the programme

In order to enrol in the second year, students must have completed first-year course units in the amount of 54 ECTS credits. For repeat enrolment in the same year students must have completed at least half the programme requirements of that year (i.e. 30 ECTS credits).

  • Requirements for completing studies

To complete the study programme, students must complete all prescribed course units, for a total of 120 ECTS credits, including their master’s thesis. This programme does not contain any separate parts which can be individually completed.

  • Requirements for transferring between study programmes

In accordance with Article 6 of the Criteria for Transferring between Programmes, it is possible to transfer between study programmes: (1) which on completion guarantee the acquisition of comparable competences and (2) for which at least half the course units under the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) from the first study programme relating to compulsory subjects of the second study programme may be recognised in accordance with recognition criteria.

Transferring to the second-cycle Interdisciplinary Master’s Study Programme in Multimedia from other programmes (master’s programmes) is open to candidates who have:

  • met the conditions for enrolment in the second-cycle interdisciplinary master’s study programme in Multimedia,
  • met the conditions for enrolment in the second year of the study specialisation in which the student is currently enrolled, with the added condition that they have completed the requirements in all mandatory courses of the first year or equivalent courses at other higher education institutions whose appropriateness is assessed by the Committee for Study Affairs of FRI and the Study Committee of FE.

Students may also be given consent to parallel enrolment in another study programme based on a personal application and their study performance.

  • Methods of assessment

Student knowledge is assessed for individual subject courses (study units) in the manner envisaged in the course syllabuses (study units). Details concerning the verification of knowledge are defined in the internal documents of the University of Ljubljana, the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Faculty of Computer and Information Science.

In accordance with the Statutes of the University of Ljubljana, the following assessment grades are used:
10 (excellent),
9 (very good),
8 (very good),
7 (good),
6 (sufficient),
5 to 1 (fail).

For each subject course (study unit), after verification of knowledge candidates receive a single grade from the above scale.

Candidates pass the verification of knowledge in the subject (study unit) if they receive a grade of 6 or higher.

Candidates are granted in full the envisaged number of ECTS credits for that subject course (study unit) if they successfully pass the verification of knowledge in that course (study unit).
