I came to study at the University of Belgrade in the spring semester 2016/17. For the study I chose three subjects: marketing channels, business marketing and English language, I also went to the courses of the Serbian language. Lectures were held in the Serbian language. The first time was difficult, but after a few weeks I adapted and knew almost everything that was said by teachers. The first thing I noticed in the process of learning was that students are given more freedom and time for independent study. The teachers are open for communication; answer all questions of the students. In addition to my studies I was able to travel through Serbia. Serbian people are kind and open, always ready to help. I came on an exchange program in Belgrade for the second time and if possible, with pleasure, will come again!

It was a pleasure for me to get to know many people from different countries in Belgrade by the Erasmus Student’s Network. There were only a few exchange students at the Faculty of Economics during my semester, but that did not matter to me. Because of that situation we could speak to the professors personally whenever we had to. I was lucky that the faculty offered similar courses like those I would have attended in Germany and the results of the exams were counted at my home university. In general, all the Serbs I met where very open-minded towards guest students. For those who are planning to go to Belgrade as a guest student, I would advise to get in touch with the Erasmus network at an early stage in order to clarify matters such as accommodation. In hindsight I am very glad that I spent this time in Belgrade and would very much recommend it to everyone.

I remember my first day on Economics Faculty very clearly like it was yesterday. It was very difficult at first, coming from Jamaica and not knowing anyone and a strange language but the professors and my colleagues were very helpful and understanding. I then joined the student union and made some amazing friends and shared in inspirational projects with these brilliant student leaders. It has been such an amazing cultural experience and learning opportunity. I have grown exponentially and have discovered new strengths and abilities within myself.

I spent 5 months doing an exchange at the Faculty of Economics in Belgrade and I was excited about it. Thanks to the local ESN organistaion, students at the faculty and my colleagues from the student dorm, integration in between the locals was really easy! All of them were nice to me, always kind, friendly and helpful if needed. I was pleasantly surprised about the atmosphere at the faculty and about how much are Serbian students motivated and dedicated to study. I can honestly recommend doing an exchange in Belgrade to anyone who is interested.
