14th June – 30th september 2019


The Association EPEKA, Soc. Ent., will offer MA students of the Faculty of Arts at the University of Maribor possibility to do work experience.

Some companies came up with an initiative which was accepted by the University of Maribor. As a part of the MA study programs in the academic year 2018/19, they will offer work exeperience as an ECTS extra-curricular activity that the students can assert as an additional successfully fulfilled task. It is not part of the accredited study programme, but it can be added as an annex to the degree.

The Faculty of Arts has 12 departments and thus associated study fields: langauges and literature (Slovene, English, German and Hungarian), translating, geography, history, art history, philosophy, pedagogy, sociology and psychology.

Because work experience is not part of the study program, the University of Maribor doesn’t interfer in relation between companies and students and also doesn’t have any obligations or responsibilities to the students. The University of Maribor only acts as a link to help establish contact between students and potential employers, thus:

– students only do work experience if they want to and on their own responsibility;

– if the students aren’t satisfied with the work experience they can justifiably end it; the same goes for the company, i. e. we can thank the students for their service prematurely;

– mere selection of the student for the work experience is no guarantee for an actual job later on.
