The Education System in Bosnia-Herzegovina

The faculties are treated as higher education establishments. University degrees are acquired at the faculties and arts academies. The undergraduate education lasts for 4 years; Master's programs are two years. For doctoral studies, the only eligible students are those with a master's degree. Universities consist of faculties and academies. The faculties are treated as legally autonomous institutions, with financial and academic autonomy. Currently around 60,000 students are enrolled in BiH (Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina) universities. About 30% of them are part time students. In general, the employment situation of the university graduates is very poor. The industry is stagnating around 40 % of the pre-war level which makes the labour market demand very weak. The total number of teachers in 24,227. In spite of these figures, the majority of the universities do not have enough teachers and they depend on the teachers from other universities and countries, namely Serbia and Montenegro and Croatia. There is no unified curriculum or teaching methods for the country; most universities use either Croatian or Serbian models. Buildings and universities infrastructure were badly damaged during the war (especially in Sarajevo and in Mostar) but some progress has been made in recent years in terms of physical reconstruction. Still, most universities require support in materials such as labs, computers and technology for teaching and research.
