  3. 3. 3 ...SerbiaThe Republic of Serbia is a European country located on the strategically important Balkan Peninsula that has connected the West and East for centuries. These varied influences as well as its diverse landscapes have made it into a place in which foreigners can experience the diversity and wealth of different traditions and natural beauty even if visited only for a couple of days. Moreover, since Serbian people are known as hospitable and joyful, you will definitely want to stay longer and fully experience its unique abundance of contrasts.
  4. 4. 4 The north of the country is covered in golden-green grain fields scattered with a couple of bigger and a lot of smaller rivers and adorned with lakes and sands. The central and southern parts of the country predominantly feature hills and mountains, but since there are a lot of rivers too, cities and towns are mainly located in basins and valleys. Throughout history this region has attracted foreigners from both the East and the West and these numerous influences can be seen not only in architecture and culture, but also in everyday life, cuisine and traditions. The Serbian people are known as hospitable and joyful and this vibrant place allows one to experience the best of both the West and the East at the same time. A strong focus on innovation, creative industries and IT sector development puts Serbia on the map of rising European economies. On the other hand, Serbia strives to keep the uniqueness of its people, traditions and culture by fostering the sense of community, hospitality, arts, the publishing scene, etc. Great plains of the North Beautiful mountains of the South West on the East... ...and East on the West Discover...

As an important strategic point, the city has seen many who tried to conquer it through the ages, but in the end, it simply conquers its visitors with its unique spirit and charm. BELGRADE Beograd is situated in the northern region of Vojvodina, some 90 kilometers upstream the great Danube river from the capital. It is globally known for one of the best music festivals in the world – Exit – and it is also the 2019 European Youth Capital and the 2021 European Capital of Culture. The city of rich traditions in the south of the country, is one of the oldest cities in the Balkans known, among other things, as the birthplace of Roman Emperor Constantine the Great. Kragujevac is located in the central region of Šumadija, and it is known as the old capital of Serbia, where one of the first democratic constitutions in the world was adopted in the early 19th century. Novi Sad Nis Kragujevac The beauty of Serbia can also be appreciated in its numerous small towns. Sremski Karlovci, a town in the Vojvodina region, has a long scholarly tradition. This is the place of some of the first schools in the Serbian language in the past and where a future university centre for foreign students is going to be established.

  11. 11. 11 Where? Higher education institutions are located all over the country, but the biggest university centres with the highest number of institutions (and students) are Belgrade, Novi Sad, Niš and Kragujevac. Study programmes offered by universities, faculties, academies of art and colleges will prepare you well for both research and scientific careers, as well as for the world of work. What? With over 130 accredited programmes at all levels of studies taught in English and other foreign languages, as well as numerous other programmes available to visiting exchange students, there is a wealth of opportunities for foreign students to study in Serbia. In which language? The principal language of instruction is Serbian for all educational levels, but there are also study programmes offered entirely or partially in English. - Degree studies in English: In this publication you can find a list of programmes offered entirely in English, as of academic year 2019/2020. - Exchange studies in English: You can find other programmes accredited in English and Serbian in the StudyInSerbia.rs database. - Studies in Serbian: If you already speak Serbian, you can also enrol at a programme offered in Serbian only, and if you want to learn this language while in Serbia, there are several options to learn it as a foreign language – see page 19. How much does it cost? The costs of studying and living in Serbia are considerably lower than in many European countries. Tuition fees vary from around 1000 EUR to 7000 EUR, living costs (accommodation, food and transportation) are around 350 EUR/month and fun and leisure activities are also quite affordable. When? It can sometimes be challenging to navigate through the application process. In order to make sure not to miss any deadlines, you can follow our 12-step guide to studying in Serbia on pages 20-23. How to start? The list of programmes for foreign students on the following pages will give you the key information to start choosing your programme. So, turn the page and start exploring…
  12. 12. 12 The following pages feature 136 study programmes that are accredited in English and available to foreign students in academic year 2019/20. The programmes are presented by subject field, in three categories: PROGRAMMES IN BLUE are accredited in foreign languages and the respective institutions will offer them in academic year 2019/20, with lectures in English and all necessary support services for foreign students. PROGRAMMES IN RED are not only accredited and offered like the programmes in blue, but also have a tradition of welcoming foreign degree students. PROGRAMMES IN GREY are also accredited in foreign languages, but the institutions do not guarantee that all lectures will be offered completely in English in the next academic year. Instead, there might be some lectures in Serbian, with additional support services (such as individual sessions, consultations with teaching staff, etc.) provided for foreign students.

These are not the only programmes accredited in foreign languages. There are programmes accredited in English and Serbian that might not be fully available in foreign languages in this academic year. Though lectures and group activities may be organised mostly in Serbian, additional opportunities for foreign students are offered, such as consultations with teaching staff in English or other foreign languages. These programmes are especially suitable for shorter student mobilities through Erasmus+ or other mobility programmes. You can find these programmes in the StudyInSerbia.rs database of learning opportunities for foreign students. Centres of Serbian as a foreign language offer Serbian language courses in Belgrade, Novi Sad, Niš and Kragujevac. Classes are usually organised in small groups, as one or two semester-long preparatory programmes. There are also individual classes, summer schools and online courses. ...

  20. 20. 20 Start Learn... Find a programme and institution Make sure to check the language of instruction and the level of knowledge necessary to enrol for the programme. Make sure that the programme you choose is accredited. You can check that easily by searching for the programme in the studyinserbia.rs database. If a programme has valid accre- ditation, its degree is nationally accepted. Check academic requirements Bachelor Four-year secondary education; passing e entrance exam Master 240 or 180 ECTS Bachelor degree PhD 300 ECTS gained during Bachelor and Master studies Check the application procedure and deadlines Usually, the deadlines are in May/June for Bachelor and September/October for Master’s and PhD. Note that the deadlines can vary among institutions and sometimes even among programmes at the same institution. Get in touch with the institution If you are interested in a programme listed in this publi- cation, visit the website of the institution. You can also use the email address written next to the programme to ask any additional questions you may have. If you are interested in any other pro- gramme, find the correspo- nding email in the studyinserbia. rs database, or on the institu- tion’s website. You can also visit Info centre in Belgrade or write to studyinserbia@tempus.ac.rs if you need help in contacting the institution.
  21. 21. 21 07 06 ... 12 steps to Study in Serbia Prepare necessary documents and apply Application documents can include an ap- plication form, birth certificate, passport/ID scan, transcripts of records and/or previous education cycle diploma(s), proof of applica- tion fee payment, etc. Check the list of neces- sary documents (and which of them should be translated) with the chosen institution. At this stage, you can usually submit the docu- ments electronically or by post. Get your diploma(s) recognized Your previously acquired diploma has to be recognized before the enrolment in a study programme in Serbia. If you want to enrol for Bachelor studies, you should get your high- school diploma recognized by the Ministry of Education, Science and Technological Development (www.mpn.gov.rs/enicnaric-srbija). If you are continuing your studies in Serbia, contact the chosen institution for starting the recognition process of your previ- ous higher education diploma. Apply for a visa (if you need one) Check whether you need a visa at studyinserbia.rs/living-in-serbia/ visa-and-permits. If you do, fill in the visa application form and submit it to the nearest Serbian embassy or consulate along with the required documents. If you come for the entrance exam, you will get a short-term (entrance) visa. When you enrol for a study programme, you should receive an Invitation letter from the institution and then you apply for Type D visa based on which you will apply for the residence permit in later steps.
  22. 22. 22 09 10 11 08 Pass an entrance exam Depending on the study pro- gramme you choose, you might need to take an entrance exam or some additional exams that test your knowledge in the field of study. Entrance exams are usually held in June for Bachelor and in September-October for Master programmes. Formally enrol and pay the tuition fee Formal enrolment involves the submission of original documents such as the birth certificate with the translation, proof of recognition of the previously acquired diploma and original of the recognized document, and also filling in some forms provided by the institution. The tuition fee amount should normally be paid in full, but some institutions offer the possibility of paying in instalments. Find accommodation Foreign students can opt for accommodation in student dormitories or private apartments (a room or an entire apartment). Student dormitories are available in cities/towns with a large student population and that is usually a more budget friendly option. In addition, students can choose to rent a private room in a flat/house with a Serbian family or rent a whole apartment on their own or with other students. Apply for a temporary residence permit Students are obligated to extend their short-term visa when they arrive in Serbia and to obtain a residence/study visa after the enrolment. Foreign students must re-apply for a residence visa every year, providing proof of studying during the validity period of previously obtained visa.

Some institutions might allow missing some classes/practical work during the semester, but as a rule, attending classes is the basis for gaining ECTS points based on class responsibilities. Get a student card for discounted meals in canteens and discounts for different goods and services (such as intercity busses, restaurants, cafes, etc.). Travel as much as you can to get the full experience of Serbia and Europe. You can also join different academic competitions, conferences or student organizations in order to learn more and travel even more cheaply with other students. In case you need any help, visit the Info Centre for foreign students in Belgrade, Terazije 39/I or send an e-mail to: studyinserbia@tempus.ac.rs. Extra step: share your experiences! 23
  24. 24. 24 Learn... Tuition fees Tuition fees in Serbia are paid per year and usualy range from 1000 EUR to 7000 EUR. Tuition fees cover lectures, seminars, practical work, library and academic network use, etc. Books and study materials are usually not covered by tuition fees, but their price does not normally exceed 100-250 EUR per year. Accommodation costs Student dormitory: Prices vary depending on the number of persons sharing the room. Usually, the monthly price for a double room is around 100 EUR or less/per person, with all utilities included. Rented accommodation: Prices vary depending on the location, size, position and the condition of the rented flat. If you share a flat with other students in a small town, it can cost from 60 EUR (plus around 30 EUR for utilities) per person. On the other hand, if you want to rent a whole apartment for yourself in a central location in Belgrade, that can cost up to 300 EUR plus 150 EUR for utilities. Food costs Students can have all three meals in canteens at reduced prices – around 1-1.5 EUR per meal.
