The Bosnian-Herzegovinian educational system is well established and modern. The tradition of higher education in the country has been around since 1531. Some of the earliest schools are still present today.
There are eight institutes of higher education in the country offering more than 90 faculties. Additionally there are art academies, and more than 22 private universities that are accredited by the government.
There is also the option of participating in summer programs offered in collaboration with various universities. The programs allow participants to study culture, economics, politics, and conflict issues that the country has lived through and how they are handling them.
There are also a number of scholarships available to students interested in learning Bosnian-Herzegovinian language, culture and history. Such programs are designed to promote the lesser taught languages. There are also a number of graduate level and research study grants available to interested students.
Citizens of EU, the U.S. and Canada do not need a visa if they plan to stay less than 90 days. Longer stays will require a visa. Residents of other countries will have to check specifics that apply to each country. Students will need a letter of approval from the institute they plan to attend before applying for a student visa.
Lastly, there are also trainings and workshops offered to professionals during times of the year. Workshops in Effective Writing Skills, Time Management, Presentation Skills and many other specializations are available.
