I learned about IUS from a cousin who graduated from International Relations Program at IUS.

Jasmin Šutković, Assistant at the Genetics and Bioengineering Program

I graduated in 2009 as a member of the first generation of graduates from the Biological Sciences and Bioengineering Program (current Genetics and Bioengineering Program) at IUS. I was an IUS scholarship student for five years, including one year of English Language School (ELS). Like the rest of my generation, the first year of my studies was spent actively learning English at ELS. The challenge was to learn and improve English as much as possible, which I did thanks to English language teachers who used latest methodology and best books as is the case today as well.

I’ll always remember that first year because of my friends and colleagues with whom I shared room at IUS. My fellow classmates came from Turkey, Pakistan, Indonesia, Sudan...Read more

After winning the first place at the entrance exam, I received 100% scholarship at IUS.

I personally was delighted at the willingness of professors and staff to cooperate at all times, even help finding an employer for mandatory student internship.
