During the four years of studying, students have the opportunity to see and hear distinguished researchers from the field of srbism, as well as important writers and cultural workers, through scientific meetings, various lectures and events, and to express their talents for poetry, acting and writing. “< p>


Anja Ševo
English language and literature study program

“After finishing high school, I had to choose the path that I would use for the next four years and, from my great love for literature and English, I chose the one that went rarely. I did not need a passport or visa, I traveled freely and always encountered smiles and help. I did not even think that I would find so much knowledge, warmth, and bright spirit, and that I would meet such poetic souls. I tried to absorb their coherent words, because I knew that later knowledge would help me a lot. And it really helped, and still helps. “

In addition to the acquired knowledge, in this study program, I value the fact that I have learned to constantly learn and work on myself, to do my job responsibly and always give me the best. “
