Frequently Asked Questions

 

1. How can I become a student at one of the Faculties at European University?

A student at The European University can be any interested candidate that has completed four-year secondary education. The enrollment is made through a competition without passing entry examination. The selection is made through preliminary lists where in 60 percent is taken the accomplishment from the secondary education and in 40 percent the marks from the subjects which are relevant for the faculty at which bidding is being done.

The duration of the studies is three years in the undergraduate phase and two years in the phase for postgraduate studies. Overall it is five years.

  • Certificates from the four-year completed secondary education (original) ;
  • Diploma for completed secondary education (original);
  • Birth Certificate;

2. Will the exams that I have passed at another high-educational institution be recognized when enrolling at The European University?

The European University provides compatibility with the developed educational systems of the European credit-transfer system (ECTS) for recognizing the diplomas according to the Bologna Declaration since 1999.

ECTS credits are the volume of work that the student must realize in order to pass the exam. That means the each subject has a specific number of credits (scores) which can be transferred to another domestic or foreign faculty which operates according to this model and vice versa. That means that if it is a compatible program we will recognize only the exams that are compatible with ours.

3. What does the new 3+2 program differs from the one that was valid until now and what do I get with it?

The program (3+2) is a program which was launched in the academic year 2006/2007 and it significantly differs from the program that was being conducted until now. The program 3+2 enables the student to acquire the title Bachelor with three completed years, while the student acquires the title MA with completed five years and additional MA thesis.

4. Is my diploma recognized in the country and abroad?

The European University is the first private domestic university which is accredited by the Board of Accreditation of Republic of Macedonia on 01.06.2005.
