Thanks to these efforts, the University has had more than 1,400 incoming and 2,800 outgoing mobilities in total, since 2015/2016.
“When foreign students come to UNS, they have a full support from the University. There are also health services available, cooperation with the Police department, possibility to use Central University Library, and the Centre for Serbian as a Foreign Language, which is also rather important,” Professor added.
