Suzana Kosir is Associate Dean for Education at the International School for Social and Business Studies in Celje, Slovenia.
Slovenian higher education is focused on the Bologna process, but at the same time is faced with a lack of students and high drop out rates. The Bologna reforms have affected Slovenian Higher Education on many different levels. One of the major problems is student transition from high school to higher education. Progression of students from the first to the second study year is one of the major challenges.
The International School for Social and Business studies is a private Higher Education institution in Slovenia which started with Bologna programs from its beginning. The School had to cope with a variety of problems during the first study year. The biggest challenge was how to motivate students who do not have to pay fees to study, to change teaching methods for teachers and especially to help students transition from high school to higher education.
