The International Relations Office of the University of Sarajevo, in cooperation with vice-deans and coordinators for international relations at the university members, as well as in communication with partner institutions throughout Europe, opened calls for both-way mobility.
Approximately 50 students from the University of Sarajevo were given the opportunity to stay abroad the following semester, while 40 students from abroad chose the University of Sarajevo as the host for the following semester. On that occasion, a Welcome Day was held for foreign students who will spend the winter semester of the 2021/2022, mostly through the Erasmus + program. Students come from Austria, Estonia, France, Greece, Croatia, Italy, Germany, Poland, Portugal, Slovenia, Serbia, Spain, Sweden and Turkey.
Respecting the epidemiological measures, the Welcome Day was held at the Rectorate of the University of Sarajevo, where students were introduced to the University of Sarajevo, city of Sarajevo, and with academic, administrative and practical information that will help them get around the city faster and better. In cooperation with the Erasmus Student Network student association, we enabled them to “pair” with local students in order to facilitate their stay and provide information about life in Sarajevo.
Exchange students will stay at the University of Sarajevo until the end of February 2022, when they officially finish their teaching obligations, and we hope that in that period they will achieve positive results and experience.

It will take place on April 22 and 23, 2021, and will include interactive audience participation and many networking opportunities.
Against the backdrop of the ongoing climate crisis, fundamental technological advances, labour market changes and the pressure Europe’s political systems are currently experiencing, to name only a few examples, an honest and ambitious debate is needed about the path universities should take to remain resilient and relevant. To contribute to this debate, EUA has developed a vision of open, engaged and autonomous European universities, outlined in the publication “Universities without walls – A vision for 2030”, and the 2021 EUA Annual Conference will provide a forum for discussions on some of the key actions needed to realise this vision.
The conference will feature sessions in multiple formats, with a rich variety of live speakers and video messages by high-level personalities such as European Council President Charles Michel. In addition, you will be able to network with your peers and access virtual booths presenting diverse EUA projects and activities.
We invite you to 𝙀𝙍𝘼𝙎𝙈𝙐𝙎 + info days which will be held online, on Wednesday (March 17) and Thursday (March 18) starting at 12.00 via the Zoom platform of the University of Sarajevo.

After the suspension of mobility (outgoing and incoming) in the winter semester 2020/2021 due to the Covid19 virus pandemic and the lack of favorable epidemiological conditions for normal travel, stay and teaching, the International Relations Office of the University of Sarajevo (in cooperation with vice deans and coordinators for international relations of university members) opened a calls for incoming and outgoing mobility during the winter semester and organized the admission of foreign students to the summer semester 2020/2021.
Approximately 150 students of the University of Sarajevo were given the opportunity to go abroad next semester, with many considering them to cancel due to the current situation with the pandemic, and the lock-down in most European countries. When it comes to incoming students at the University of Sarajevo, a much smaller (but not insignificant) number comes to us – 15 of them in the next semester.
On that occasion, a Welcome Day was held for our incoming students who will spend the upcoming summer semester at our university, mostly through the Erasmus+ program. Students come from France, Italy, Austria, Poland, Germany, the Czech Republic, Estonia and Spain.
Due to epidemiological conditions, the Welcome Day was held online, where students were introduced to the University of Sarajevo, the city of Sarajevo, and provided with academic and practical information that will be useful for faster and better acclimatization in the city. In cooperation with the Erasmus Student Network, we have enabled them to “pair” with local students in order to help them and provide information about life in Sarajevo.
In addition to successfully contracted courses and activities that will be studied / worked in the coming months at our university, a great advantage for visiting students is the fact that Sarajevo (and the whole of Bosnia and Herzegovina) is currently in a favorable situation when it comes to the coronavirus pandemic, due to the smaller number of patients, no special measures have been introduced in relation to other countries in the region and Europe, where everyday normal life is stopped because of the lock-down.
Incoming visiting students will stay until July 2021, when they officially finish their teaching obligations, and we hope that in that period they will achieve positive results and experience at least half of the mobility in Sarajevo and BiH that former visiting students had before the pandemic.
