“Undergraduate nursing study programme at UP FHS is very dynamic and varied. In addition to lectures, which give us the theoretical basis , newly acquired knowledge can be advantageously used in clinical training and later in our work. If you are interested in working with people and healthcare, this is the study for you!” - Mirko Ilić, Undergraduate Nursing Student

“I decided to study dietetics because this field is very promising . Nowadays we are faced with the " obesity epidemic " and we could say that "We are what we eat". Also, this is the only study in Slovenia in the field of nutritional counselling. Studying on the beutiful Slovenian coast is just another plus. If you are interested in gaining knowledge for helping people achieving a healthier life style, than studying Nutritional counselling is right for you.” - Žan Virtnik, Undergraduate Nutritional counseling - dietetics student

“I started studying at the Faculty of Health Sciences because I was attracted by the study programme Nutritional counselling - Dietetics . At first I did not know what competences and knowledge the degree in Dietetics will bring me, but shortly after visiting the Faculty for the firs time I decided that this was the right study for me. During the study I learned about the impact of food on the human body and why it is important to eat fresh and high quality food. I am satisfied with my decision and studying on the coast also has its charms.” - Nina Medved, Undergraduate Nutritional counseling - dietetics student
