School of Arts University of Nova Gorica
The Academy of Arts of the University of Nova Gorica focuses on the development of authors who create in various artistic fields and media: film, animation, photography, new media, contemporary artistic practices and various connections between them. The interdisciplinary and intermedial orientation of highly practical studies in a high-quality academic environment is ensured by a wide range of professional colleagues and guest mentors. With various mobility options, students are involved in projects and collaborations both with the local community and with the wider international social environment, which makes studying at the junction with the Italian community all the more feasible.
