Higher Education

There are eight public universities in Bosnia and Herzegovina and the U.S. Embassy in Sarajevo has an ongoing collaboration with all. We do encourage U.S. applicants to try and affiliate with institutions of higher learning, i.e. public universities outside the country’s capital of Sarajevo with the largest and oldest university in the country. Below is the list of institutions (in local language and in English) and their websites.

    • Univerzitet u Sarajevu /University of Sarajevo
    • Univerzitet u Tuzli/University of Tuzla
    • Univerzitet u Bihaću/University of Bihac
    • Univerzitet «Džemal Bijedić» u Mostaru/University «Dzemal Bijedic» in Mostar
