We take a peek into the lives of foreign students living in Slovenia. Did they come to party, study or just shake up their everyday lives? What makes these young people tick and what do they think about the country they've come to? Listen to the challenges they face and what they miss from home. Has this experience changed them? Are they considering staying here? Every Monday at 11:25 only on Radio Si. Do you want to share your experience? Just write to pr@radiosi.eu and maybe you are our next guest.



Ramón comes from Tenerife, but came to Koper to study and is now in his third year. One of the first sentences he learned in Slovenian was »Pojdi stran nora soseda«. An interesting fact – there are no thunderstorms in Tenerife. Ramón says this is something he still hasn’t gotten used to here. His music choice was Pasodoble Islas Canarias. Composed by the Catalan musician Josep María Tarridas, the song is considered as an informal anthem of the Canary Islands.


STUDY ABROAD: Konstantin

Konstantin, who comes from the Republic of Northern Macedonia, chose to spend his Erasmus in Slovenia, since it was neither too close nor too far from home. Although Northern Macedonia is only slightly larger than Slovenia in terms of surface area and population, compared to Ljubljana, Skopje has almost double the people living there, which also means it is home to about a quarter of the country’s population and makes for a more exciting nightlife compared to Ljubljana. But apart from that, Konstantin says students in Slovenia don’t know how good they have it! For the musical break, he chose to play Dog Days Are Over by Florence + The Machine.



Imagine having to confirm your attendance at every lecture with a fingerprint or by swiping your student card. Or having less than 85% attendance at one of your classes and as a result automatically failing all your exams that semester. It’s no wonder this week’s Study Abroad guest, Debashish thinks that studying in Slovenia far more lenient compared to India.



Łukasz is a Polish student of management in Koper. What he says surprised him there the most was the strong, cold bora winds. He decided to study in Koper because the University of Primorska offered studies in English, which was something that wasn’t possible in Poland and since Scandinavian and western European countries were too expensive. His music choice was Polish artist Brodka's cover of Nirvanas' song Heart-Shaped box.



Anita did grow up in the Netherlands, but her Macedonian roots also led her to Slovenia. She says many people are not aware of how densely populated the Netherlands is. More than 17 million people live in this northwestern European monarchy, which is only slightly more than once larger than Slovenia. This means that it is more than 4 times more densely populated than Slovenia. Her music choice was the song Kilometri by North Macedonian artist Vlatko Lozanoski.



Koper was her mother's hometown, so Kyra spent almost every summer there. The student of economics wanted to experience it in a different way, so she decided to spend her Erasmus there. For the music break, she decided to play Blossom by Milky Chance.



If you want to study in Italy, prepare to memorize a lot of information. At least that's what our newest Study Abroad guest, Francesco claims. What does he think about the transference of the reins between generations in Slovenia and what kind of art does he feel can be discussed in the everyday life here? Listen to find out! His music of choice was a piece titled Zero Totale, one he wrote and performed under the name Artista Sconosciuto.



Damir believes that students in Slovenia have a lot of opportunities offered to them, so they should make the most of it. Since arriving for his Erasmus exchange in Ljubljana, he hasn't had any technical difficulties when signing up for the Faculty web-pages or completing the necessary paperwork, he participated in many sports activities organized by the local student organizations and even worked at two different jobs as a student. His music choice was the song Ela Navega by the American rock band Allah-Las.



Even though Irina says she likes Maribor, she finds it a bit too small. The population of her home town, Kharkiv is namely about 3 of the population of Slovenia. For the music break, she decided to play See You Again by Wiz Khalifa ft. Charlie Puth.



Sunday lunch at noon is a staple in Slovenia, but it's not quite like that in Spain. Carolina says that it really surprised her when she came to the cafeteria at her faculty around 11:30AM and saw people eating pasta. She says that at that hour, she would maybe have a second breakfast, but never lunch. For her music choice, she decided on Bad Guy by Billie Eilish.



Andrew says when it comes to getting a bite to eat, it was weird getting adjusted to Slovenia. For the most part, you have to take an hour, sit down and have a full meal, whereas in America, there's a lot of fast food options where you're in and out within 10 minutes, which he says is a lot simpler. His song of choice was Happier by Marshmello ft. Bastille.



Grandes Écoles are higher education establishments in France that exist outside the main framework of the French public university system. According to our newest Study Abroad guest, Melisa, they get more respect than the public faculties. Thing is, in France, anyone with a high-school degree can enroll at any Faculty they want and their studies are mostly free of charge. Melisa chose to play a song titled La Terre est ronde (Paroles), which roughly translates to the earth is round, by French rapper and songwriter Orelsan.



Are women and men truly equal in Slovenia? How do we celebrate International Women's Day in Slovenia and how is it different from Spain? Andrea's music choice was Castle on the Hill by Ed Sheeran.



Does the Erasmus experience really change you or does it just bring out what was already somewhere inside you? Well, our newest Study Abroad guest believes it’s the latter. Why was Livia basically homeless for the first two weeks in Ljubljana and why is she now considering staying in Ljubljana for the long-haul? He music choice was the song Like I Love You by Lost Frequencies ft. The NGHBRS.


STUDY ABROAD: Takuya Nakaizawa

This week’s Study Abroad guest comes from Japan! Takuya Nakaizawa is not just a student at Ljubljana's Faculty of Arts. He also teaches Japanese there! When it comes to partying, he says he can't understand how students who party every night can stay motivated for their studies. In Japan, parties look very different from those that take place here. Back home, he'd meet with his friends, chat, eat something, play a game and go home.


STUDY ABROAD: Aleksandra

Aleksandra has had such a good experience of studying in Ljubljana, that she put it down as her second choice for her next Erasmus experience. She says that here, her studies at the Faculty of Medicine are much less stressful than in Poland but are of no less quality. Why is that so? Listen to the interview with our newest Study Abroad guest to find out!



Meet Marco! The Italian student of pharmacology says he expected Ljubljana to be bigger. The city has about half the inhabitants of Bologna, which the Erasmus student considers to be an average-sized Italian city. Since he’s studying pharmacology, he chose to play the song Paracetamolo by Calcutta. Paracetamolo is Italian for paracetamol, a medication used to treat pain and fever.



She didn’t expect Ljubljana to be as big, but Melissa says she fell in love with the city at first sight. One of the main reasons she chose Slovenia was because one of her friends went to Ljubljana the year before and kept posting beautiful pictures and saying she was having the time of her life. Plus, Slovenia was different from the countries most of her friends who went on Erasmus chose. For her music choice, she decided on the song New Estate by Giant Rooks.



Unlike most students, Jonasz did not want to spend his Erasmus in Spain, France, or Portugal. As a child he spent a few days in the Julian Alps. This left such an impression on him, that he decided he wanted to come and live in Slovenia for a few months at one point in his life, so when he got an opportunity to spend his Erasmus in Slovenia, he took it. His music choice was Czesław Niemen's 1967-piece Dziwny jest ten świat (Strange is this World), commonly acknowledged to be the most important Polish protest song of that era. One of the first Polish performers to wear colorful clothes and long hair, Niemen introduced the style of psychedelia to then-communist Poland.



Nadica chose to study in Slovenia for three reasons. The first was the nature in Slovenia, the second reason was that she wanted to go study outside her own country and the third was the study system and opportunities she believes it offers its students. The informatics student from the Republic of North Macedonia used to be part of a folklore dance group, so she tried learning some Slovenian traditional dances as well. She finds them just as fast but a bit less complex than the Macedonian ones. For her music choice, she chose to play Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen.
