1) First-cycle (bachelor degree) studies in the field of Administration:
The studies last 6 semesters. Studies with a practical profile. The student may independently direct his/her knowledge and skills by choosing one of the following specialties:
- Government administration and civil service
- Internal security administration
- Self-government administration
- Judicial administration
- Public governance
In the field of Administration it is possible for the candidate to use learning outcomes achieved outside the higher education system. If the candidate for undergraduate studies holds a certificate of maturity and at least five years' work experience, he/she may apply to the University for counting the learning outcomes achieved as a result of the courses and training taken, as well as those obtained by performing various tasks at the occupied position. If the University achieves learning outcomes, this may lead to a reduction in the duration of studies by one, two or, in individual cases, even three semesters, i.e. by half the duration of undergraduate studies.
2) Second cycle (master's) programmes in the field of Administration:
The studies last 4 semesters. Studies with a practical profile. By choosing a Master's Seminar, students can better manage their professional careers.
If a candidate for a Master's degree has at least three years of postgraduate experience, he/she may take advantage of the same possibility of obtaining credit for learning outcomes, which may reduce the time of the Master's degree by one, and in special cases by two semesters.
If someone already holds a Master's degree and after obtaining it has worked for at least two years, they may take up studies in another field of study and apply to the University for a credit for learning outcomes. This leads to a corresponding reduction in the duration of studies in the next field of study.
