Erasmus+ Projects

International Office at Universum College

Internationalization of our university remains as one of our academic and professional priorities. As a part of our policy we consistently update our internationalization strategies in order to optimize the mechanisms that facilitate professional exchanges amongst staff and students. Hence, we are always looking forward to establish cooperation with respective institutions across Europe and beyond.

Universum College is recognized as the most internationalized institution in Kosovo. This subsequently has resulted from the ever increasing number of students and staff whom have obtained international experience by participating in exchange activities, projects as well as joint partnerships with various institutions worldwide. With three different innovative campuses in the most dynamic and attractive cities in Kosovo, Universum College has always been the number one selection of both native and international students. Hence, we strive to keep our trophy and consistently look for new partners and cooperating institutions.

We are fully committed to internationalization in order:

  • to strengthen international thinking, culture and development by focusing on research, studies and exchanges,
  • to increase the number of partnerships and reduce the impact of stereotypes resulting from communication and cultural barriers amongst people of different backgrounds,
  • to increase the international competitiveness of Universum College, by boosting the number of mobility of international students,
  • to minimize the number of students and staff who have not experienced international opportunities and participated in joint activities,
  • to promote Universum College and Kosovo on international arena by ensuring qualitative, professional and entertaining partnerships.

Universum College offers combined modules and interactive study sessions in three different campuses, located in very dynamic, historical and attractive cities of Kosovo such is Prishtina, Ferizaj and Gjakova. These cities are known for their tradition, historical sights and monuments, rich and delicious cuisine as well as attractive night life. Given that 70 % of Kosovo’s population consist of people who are under the age of 30, the youngest people in Europe offer so much attraction, entertainment and lifelong friendships for international students, faculty and staff coming to our country.

Amongst the many advantages that Kosovo offers for visitors are:

  • Safe and friendly environment
  • Affordable and cheap housing, groceries and restaurants
  • Culturally diverse and rich communities
  • Tolerant and open society
  • Accessible and plentiful traveling options to the region.
