The University of Belgrade is the oldest and largest university in Serbia. It is located in the capital city, Belgrade. It has 31 faculties organised in four groups: social sciences and humanities, medical sciences, sciences and mathematics, and technology and engineering sciences.
Established in 1808, the University of Belgrade is now on the list of the best 600 world universities by the Shanghai Jiao Tong University’s Academic Ranking of World Universities, better known as “Shanghai Ranking”.
Public universities in Serbia have a particular tuition system, where Serbian citizens have the option to study completely free of charge. High school students collect points based on their grades throughout high school and then take the faculty entrance examination they want to enrol in. If together, high school points and entrance examination points reach the required limit, set by each faculty individually, they can study for free. Then, at the end of the first year, they again collect points based on the number of exams they pass.
Tuition fee for Bachelor’s Studies at the University of Belgrade for Serbian citizens ranges from 500 EUR to 2000 EUR per year.
However, international students can’t study using this tuition fee grant. According to FullyFundedScholarships.com, there are a few other scholarships that international students can apply for, such as ERASMUS Mundus Scholarship Program, CEEPUS Scholarship Exchange Program, Bilateral Exchange Program Scholarship Agreement, European Commission Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions Doctoral Network, ELSYS Eastern Europe scholarship, and more.
Some of the most famous degree programs among international students are medicine, economics, and architecture. Depending on the faculty, tuition fees for Bachelor’s Studies range from 1,500 EUR to 7,000 EUR.
