On Saturday (7 May 2011), the annual Open Day event was organized at the South East European University (SEEU), presenting the study offer for the academic year 2011/2012 in the first and second cycle of studies based on the Call for Student Enrolment.
“Being the only university with a private-public not for profit status enables us to accomplish our mission by creating skilled graduates that will be valued by employers, society and are competitive in global market. These young people today are simultaneously worthy citizens of a united Europe. Therefore, out of 1300 new students that will be enrolled in the academic year 2011/12, 412 students will study in programmes in the English language. Our curricula follow the best study trends of European Union countries and the United States. Now, by being the only university with a private-public non-profit status, we are in a phase where we are giving stronger support to the public value that our University creates. This year SEEU broadens its offer with four new study programmes: Economics, Agro-business, Tourism, Leadership and Youth Work in Community”, said among others, SEEU’s Rector Prof. Dr. Zamir Dika. He also underlined the fact that the university is implementing a different methodology from other universities, by adapting it to a new student profile that transforms this university into a ‘personalized university.’
