Higher vocational education is a form of higher education that combines hands-on experiences with theoretical knowledge. Higher vocational education programmes have come about as a response to a real labour market need and are delivered in close cooperation with employers and industry. Students at a school of higher vocational education can learn the skills needed to enter the workforce right after graduation. Higher vocational schools have close contact with companies and assist in helping students further themselves professionally.

A higher vocational educational college provides post-secondary school education. The courses are designed in consultation with employees and are tailored to meet the manpower needs of the labour market and lead to jobs. Thus, higher vocational education is the right option for those who are interested in combining theory with practical experience. Moreover, students gain practical experience due to the fact that 40% of the educational programmes consist of practical training.

Being one of the organisational unit of the Technical School Centre of Maribor, our Higher Vocational College provides high-quality learning opportunities at a cost people can afford from locations they can reach. Since its beginning in 2009, the college has worked with employers to deliver relevant skills, giving students what they need to qualify for good jobs and succeed in their careers.
