It is within this exciting transformation that the academic and research community is required to make its contribution towards building a sustainable, goal-driven world.

As a part of the global education community, the University of Prishtina is committed to cooperate with well-established international higher education institutions to enhance students’ academic experience through foreign academic staff and students’ mobility.
