The Students Parliament counts 30 members from a total of ten faculties.
Every year in April, elections for the representative body of students (the Student Parliament) are organised and conducted. Before the elections take place, a campaign is initiated for student organisations and individuals who run for office at the faculty or university level.
The Students Parliament is the body of individual faculties and the University as a whole, which aims at implementing rights and protecting student interests.

Prospective students can apply for undergraduate studies after successfully completing secondary education. Undergraduate studies consist of either a three or four-year period.
Each prospective student must pass an entrance exam for their respective faculty. The test contents are determined by each faculty and specific field of study. Enrolment usually takes place on 1 or 2 July, with a second application period open during September.
When applying, candidates are obliged to bring documents proving they finished high school and evidence of prior payment of entry test fee. The following documents need to be submitted together with the application form:
- Certified copies of high school diplomas and certificates
- evidence of payment of entry test fee (each year the faculty determines the amount of studying costs)
Candidates should show their passport or ID card when taking the exam. If a prospective student receives the required score to pass the exam and they are accepted into the faculty, they should submit the following original documents to complete their official enrolment into the faculty: birth certificate, two application forms, academic transcript, two photos, and for self-financed students, evidence of payment of tuition fees.
Apart from the attendance of regular courses and academic chores, campus life usually includes many other activities at the University. We recognise that it is very important to meet students’ needs and concerns in all aspects of life, ranging from cultural activities and arts to sport activities. Thus, at our University, students not only have a voice in academic and campus affairs, they also have the opportunity to engage themselves creatively, artistically, spiritually, intellectually and athletically in their spare time. On the University campus students have their choice of several students’ centres: the Cultural Centre, Centre of Informatics, Sports Centre and several libraries. The Student Cultural Centre offers students various cultural programmes: literary evenings, concerts, theatrical performances, movie projections and similar.
Student Accommodation Centre provides accommodation and food, at a modest price. To accommodate 1.700 students of the University of Pristina the Center offers ten separate student dormitories that allow students a choice between single and multi-bed rooms. The Center offers a student restaurant that provides 2,000 students with a warm meal and snacks on a daily basis. For the convenience of the students, the restaurant is located in close vicinity of the dormitories. To pay, students use meal-tickets. Incoming students are able to stay in the dormitories and eat in the students' restaurant. Apart from providing accommodations in student dormitories, the Student Centre also offers accommodation to professors, assistants and researchers employed at the University. The fact that students and professors often reside side by side, promotes closer student-professor relationships and a more collegial atmosphere.
In the premises of the Student Accommodation students can study in one of the reading rooms, they can exercise inside, in the gym or outside, at a play court, and they also have several entertaining places at their disposal. They can use free internet connection at a coffee shop ‘Index, ‘or spend time with their friends in a multimedia centre and play billiard, table tennis, play social games and similar.
Student Societies and Clubs are organizations operated by students; they promote the interests of a particular group of people through a series of events including debating, role-play, gaming, sporting activities, and performing arts. The societies meet the extracurricular needs of students who share a particular interest in or appreciation for culture, arts or an academic field (e.g., Mathematics Society).
Students Polyclinics where students can receive free of charge medical care.
Information for foreign students/staff
Foreign Students/Staff should get a visa prior to their arrival. Citizens of many countries, including most of European countries, can come to Kosovska Mitrovica without visas for up to 90 days.
Every person who is not the citizen of the Republic of Serbia should register its arrival in Serbia at the closest police station. If you are staying in private accommodation you should register the stay in the nearest police station within 24 hours of arrival. For the residence stay in Kosovska Mitrovica, you should register in the police station in the town of Raska.
For further information, visit the International Relation Office at the Rectorate building (Filipa Visnjica Street, tel: +38128422340).
Health care and insurance are important segments during your stay in Kosovska Mitrovica. It is crucial that you know the difference between the medical care system in your own country and the medical care system in the Republic of Serbia. Arranging and paying for medical care is your responsibility. The best way to meet this responsibility is to obtain comprehensive health insurance coverage to avoid excessive costs.
Kosovska Mitrovica was founded in the 14th century, around the church of St Dmitri, after which it got the name. The town was a major industrial city until the beginning of the 1990s. Because of the rich amount of its natural resources, the famous Trepca mining company was also founded, with its factory buildings standing as a symbol of the city. Due to the political developments, the predominantly Albanian majority lives in the southern part, while the north of the city is mainly populated by Serbs. The University campus is located close to the centre of the northern part, on one of the two main streets; Kralja Petra I Street is a vibrant place during the day, with many markets and stalls where people offer their goods, such as clothes and vegetables. General living expenses are considerably lower than those in Western Europe, but similar to other South-East European countries. There are many possibilities for having a (cheap) meal. A lunch in a simple restaurant will cost you 3-5 Euros. Buying a sandwich in a shop is even cheaper. For a good dinner in a restaurant, one should expect to pay 6-15 Euros. There are many shops and some mini-markets. Taxis are affordable and trips within the city should not cost you more than 1 euro. Kosovska Mitrovica can also be easily visited on foot.
The Serbian language is a demanding challenge and will take some time to learn. But once knowing how to start a conversation, it is a key advantage to socialise and thereby get connected to the people of Kosovska Mitrovica, who will appreciate one’s efforts. As there is a considerable number of students living in the city, there are also many opportunities to go out for a drink in one of the bars or pubs near the centre, to have some valuable discussions and relaxed conversations, which is most helpful to learn about life in Kosovo and Metohija and understand Serbian culture. Other things to see are the famous Ibar Bridge, known as a strong political symbol throughout the world, as well as the newly constructed Serbian Orthodox Church and the Miner’s Monument, both watching over the city from the adjacent mountains.
