    This paper aims to explore enrolment trends focusing on full-time undergraduate tertiary education studies (TE) in Slovenia. Inclusion of young people in TE in Slovenia is higher than the average of EU-27 countries by almost 20 %. In parallel with the expansion of higher education institutions and higher vocational colleges, the study places for full-time undergraduate TE studies have grown extensively. The current situation raises questions primarily related to future enrolment trends and challenges. The impact of future demographic situation is becoming increasingly evident, since the number of potential students studying in TE will be as predicted in the coming decades considerably lower. The number of first time enrolled in the first year of full-time TE studies has already begun to decline, as tertiary education institutions (TEIs) and higher education policy have to face a completely different challenge than in the past, when the trend was reversed.
