Why You Should Choose to Study in Bosnia

Located in the Balkans, Bosnia is a land of nature, waterways and mountains or in two words: infinite beauty. There’s something for everyone who wants to study in Bosnia. For those who want to enjoy the endless forests, go hiking or enjoy wildflowers in vast expanses, there is the north and east of the country, and for those who would rather experience a slightly warmer climate closer to the sea, there is the southwestern part. 

But Bosnia doesn’t just have natural beauty. Nowhere will you meet warmer people and find greater hospitality. Bosnia, and especially its capital Sarajevo, is a diverse place. This is not only because people of different religions and backgrounds live here, but because they live in harmony and peace. 

Another place in Sarajevo, where all paths meet and your journey of studying in Bosnia begins is the International University of Sarajevo

The best private school, not just in Sarajevo, but in the country, the International University of Sarajevo is a good, affordable school. Its degrees are even recognized in Austria, opening the door to an exciting international career.

1. A Fantastic Location

Sarajevo is a great place to study. From the ancient old town, to the Sebilj Fountain, to endless art stalls and legendary coffee, there’s so much to see and do in Sarajevo when studying in Bosnia.

Thanks to the excellent location of the International University of Sarajevo, many of these great sights are either within walking distance or are only a trolleybus or tram ride away. That means that after class, you can, for example, head straight to the Sebilj Fountain and enjoy a strong cup of coffee as you watch tourists and locals alike pass by. If you want to stay closer to the campus, you have all you need close by, from pharmacies, to supermarkets, to cafes.

The International University of Sarajevo is also close to suburbs, meaning that, depending on where you live, you might well be close to the campus. 

But the location of Sarajevo itself is also fantastic. Located in Central Bosnia, you’re never too far away from a weekend trip to Banja Luka, Tuzla or Mostar. With the right visa, you can even travel to Montenegro or Serbia for a weekend away.
