Faculty of Philology, University of Belgrade

The Faculty of Philology at the University of Belgrade has been nurturing the tradition of higher education stemming from the Lyceum since 1873. It has been developing philological disciplines and growing as an individual Faculty since 1960.

Adopting the Bologna principles, the flexibility of curricula, the diversity of courses, student-teacher exchanges through various EU programs, and online learning are features of our Faculty’s approach to contemporary education. Over the course of the academic year, students are engaged in a range of educational approaches, lectures, interactive classes, praxis, and exams; but they also take time to engage in student organizations such as the Student Parliament and the Student Association, as well as to get acquainted with the work of the Student Vice-Dean.

While giving its best to cater to every individual’s needs and help each student gain valuable academic and professional knowledge, the Faculty has also developed the Digital Library of the Faculty of Philology with contents available to all students free of charge times. Its utmost priority is to fully support students’ academic studies while recognizing science, culture, and education as a mutual need and a common good.
