The Faculty of Theology of the University of Ljubljana, together with the Catholic University of Croatia and the Episcopal Theological College of Pécs, is organising a Short Combined Intensive Programme (SCP) within the Erasmus+ project. The programme will include an elective course, Falling in Love Online - A Relational Paradigm, which will be taught in English. The elective course will be assessed by 3 ECTS. The seminar paper will be considered as an examination paper. 

The SCP programme will be attended by lecturers from the three participating faculties and will be attended by students from all three participating organisations. Participation in the SCP programme is also open to students from other UL member states and to students from abroad with whom the Faculty of Theology has an inter-institutional Erasmus+ agreement.
