BTEC 2020 SILVER SCHOOL OF THE YEAR IN THE WORLD!
In May 2017, the college underwent the first standard verification in the implementation of the Higher National Diploma of UK study programs. Only 3 years later, we ranked 2nd among 784 schools from 60 countries.
The expert jury identified examples of good practices and advantages of Academia in:
“Close links with the regional economy and tailored implementation for employees, high-quality lecturers who are also active experts in the economy, in six months of practical training in regional and international companies, in high-quality student products and in the strong commitment of employees to student performance during and after study.”

Practical knowledge and project work
Studying gave me the opportunity to upgrade my photography and skills. It gave me the opportunity for new projects that I might not have done otherwise.
No more excuses, just "action"!
I was poor at heart as well as in other areas. I was afraid for work, I was afraid for tomorrow … At the Academia, I was inadvertently included in a circle called “action”. I felt something more in an instant! More so because I was so warmly received with a professional attitude by the solutions they found for all my school-related problems. Really unique feeling! No more excuses, just “action”! Now my employer is afraid of when I will leave him if he does not nurture the employment relationship. Now you have the opportunity to do something for yourself and your loved ones.
I chose Academia because of the kind faces
Those of you who decide to invest your personal and professional development, let nothing stop you from applying to Academia. I, as the centre manager of the largest shopping centre in the region, recommend this in good faith.
Professionally trained lecturers from the industry
Pošta Slovenije, Maribor
I am very satisfied with the study, as it is carried out by professionally trained lecturers who use different methods of working on projects and professional excursions when teaching. During our studies, our classmates became a real team and remained on good terms even after graduation. Based on my own experience, I can recommend Academia to anyone who wants a quality, interesting and financially favourable study.
During my studies, I awoke to a desire to progress
The education I earned at Academia played a key role in advancing to sales manager at Sensilab. My advice to students is above all to complete their studies, which means graduating. Without a dot on i, it’s hard to prove what you’ve learned, no matter the experience and a bunch of new knowledge.
Media Production Engineer
I also really enjoyed the short projects
Video producer and musician
Studying opened up new possibilities for me because I became a video producer for one of the biggest dance schools, I collaborated with the Modrijani Ensemble, the vocal group Bassless … I gained a lot of new knowledge, learned to communicate and collaborate better and lead teams. In media production, we usually work as a team and therefore it is necessary for the student to learn appropriate communication, acceptance, empathy …
The study is based on real world examples of activities
APROS construction lab, Maribor
At the college, they made sure that the material and the lecturers were related to concrete examples from the industry. After completing my studies, I was employed by the family company APROS, a construction laboratory. Today, the students of Academia also perform professional exercises in the field of building materials and materials in our laboratory.
