Overview

The Sarajevo School of Science and Technology was opened in 2004 as the first private university in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Dedicated to providing high quality, internationally competitive education and up-to-date programs, SSST is currently positioned as one of the region’s leading universities, with unparalleled investments in infrastructure, research and scholarship opportunities.

Our collaboration with the University of Buckingham UK, makes SSST the only private university in BiH offering its graduates a dual degree for select academic programs. Importantly, this collaboration requires that SSST meet not only national but also University of Buckingham’s and UK’s academic guidelines and standards of teaching. The unique partnership makes SSST subject to External Examiners and the fulfilling of requirements of the University of Buckingham as set by the UK's Quality Assurance Agency (QAA). In this way, SSST ensures both transparency and the highest standards in teaching and examination procedure.

To fulfill its mandate for excellence, SSST has put together an internationally educated and ambitious faculty, many of whose members come to us from the world's leading universities. The faculty is actively engaged in research projects within their fields, remaining at the forefront of their profession’s advances both in terms of research and innovative teaching methodology.

Through its collaboration with the University of Buckingham, which is subject to the UK QAA, SSST is continuously monitored, assessed and evaluated in the following: The content, quality and standardization of our program and courses; The program implementation; the teaching process and quality; student's progression and academic achievement; student satisfaction; teaching practices and staff development.

At SSST, a good degree in any field must also include a fluent knowledge of at least one foreign language. SSST has embraced English as a medium of communication with a full English language curriculum, but also provides additional courses in both English and German, mandatory for all students regardless of their academic field of study. In result, the quality of writing, speaking and presentation skills in English that students gain here is particularly high. German is a significant addition, given the importance this language holds in fields of politics, business, science and technology.

SSST employs one professor for every four students – the highest ratio in the region and wider – while our system of Academic Advising ensures that professors and teaching assistants are available for daily consultations and are charged with individual monitoring of each student's academic progress.

The curriculum seeks not only to transfer technical skills and academic knowledge but also to build confident and globally-minded graduates, prepared for the challenging international environment. In most academic departments, students also choose a minor in addition to their main field of study, allowing specialization within their fields and greatly increasing their competitive edge following graduation.

Students are taught in smaller groups, and are given materials specific to their future professions. All courses involve the use of contemporary e-learning technologies and web resources. SSST has an ever-growing number of clubs and student organizations that reflect the many talents and interests of the lively student community.
