Basic information

Recently we incorporated wellbeing component as part of our career office. We provide psycho-social support to all students, to assist them on their journey in college. We also organize events aiming to raise the awareness on mental health. As an example of that, we have invited a professional psychologist for an open discussion with students where she addressed issues such as: stress, anxiety, the effects of COVID in students and the stigma that is associated with mental health in Kosovo. Students have been able to ask questions and were provided with mental health resources. We intend to invite two to three mental health professionals every semester for similar developments.

We are very keen to utilizing social media as a means to informing our students and the public on matters related to wellbeing. So far, on our facebook page we have provided various online resources such as self-care techniques and informational videos on stress, anxiety, problems with sleeping and fatigue. We send bi-weekly newsletter to students to report our latest developments and event dates. Currently , we are designing a blog that will be part of our website [under wellbeing column], and as such it will be open for access to everyone. We plan to build the content with professionals that work on the field of mental health, including our latest partner Stress Free Corner [ICK Start-Up] with whom we have just recently signed an agreement of collaboration.

Given the lack of research on the field of mental health in Kosovo we consider that it is vital to conduct research to learn more about the issues corresponding to mental health and wellbeing. This will help us to build informed strategies for the upcoming years and engage in initiatives that contribute positively to our student community. Coupled with career counseling we consider that this component has contributed significantly in raising the awareness on the importance of self-care and wellbeing. We have yet a lot to accomplish but we are confident that through the provision of services provided by career and welfare office Universum college will accomplish a lot not only with regard to wellbeing but also student success and retention.

Is an annual activity being organized by UC in order to equip youngsters with the necessary skills that determines their success in building their career and landing the jobs they wish for. Career Academy gathers various applicants from the high schools around Kosovo and trains them intensively on soft and hard skills such as: communication, building a cv, innovation, creative thinking, writing, entrepreneurship, sales and so on. Upon the completion of training candidates are assessed and evaluated by UC experts. Successful candidates receive scholarships for studying at UC. Each year UC gives dozens of 100% ,50 and 30% tuition fee scholarships in an attempt to help and develop the capacity of youth in Kosovo. Each year thousands of high schoolers are trained and their capacities are developed. Hence apart form its own students UC, focuses in the general development of youth in order to contribute to the economic and social consolidation of the country and the region.
