Dear students,


I am delighted to welcome all our new and returning students to the International University of Sarajevo (IUS). University life is one of the most precious and significant parts of your life, and it is immensely important that you have a supportive, challenging, and evolving learning environment to study in.


Choosing a university is the first major life decision you make, and it is a crucial decision that will have a major impact on your future. Your university experience sets a strong foundation and shapes different aspects of your life.
