Welcome to the oldest BH university

During the course of its long history, the University of Sarajevo educated a number of eminent experts from every field, gaining both local and international academic reputation. Thus I firmly believe that our commitment to the production of modern and dynamic study programs aligned with global standards is our duty that has no alternative. Countries that have invested in education of their creative people are awarded with high living standards and market competitiveness.

Accordingly, the core of our mission and vision is placing young men in the focus of learning and researching to raise and shape competent man of tomorrow who will adequately respond to all human and academic challenges the future brings. Success of our students is a benchmark for calibrating our approach and constant drive for further improving and developing study conditions that do not lag behind European knowledge acquiring principles.
