Turistica strives towards internationalisation due to the internationality of the concept of tourism itself. Each year students show greater interest in gaining knowledge in the field of tourism abroad. More and more decide to experience the student mobility programmes for studies as well as placements and in this way complete a part of their regular study at a partner institution (exchange student programme) or gain practical experience in a foreign country (student mobility for placements). We noticed an increase for staff mobility as well (teaching and administrative staff).
In addition to student and staff mobility programmes, the faculty hosts also an outstanding number of guest lecturers. Each study year we host around 20 foreign lecturers, in the sphere of the mobility programmes as well as different projects.
The integration of the faculty into the international environment brings an additional value for the improvement of study methods, the development of new study programmes, and the advancement in science and research.
The Faculty organises the biennial conference Encuentros. Located on the Adriatic coast in the Port of Roses (Portorož), part of the community of Piran, the conference will provide space for Encounters of tourism scholars from various academic disciplines, tourism practitioners and students.
