The Institute holds the Erasmus+ Charter of Higher Education in Europe 2021-2027. The rating for the charter can be found here underlining the Institute’s commitment to the international academic dimension and its solid understanding of the goals and values of the Erasmus program. Through the Erasmus + scheme for mobility of students and teaching staff between higher education institutions from the program countries (EU member states and North Macedonia, Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Serbia), we provide direct access to European higher education institutions through the “European Credit Transfer System” according to which the Institute operates (just as the other accredited institutions in the country). Thus, with a good part of the credits obtained in other higher education institutions in Europe and a certain number acquired in the domestic institution, you can defend your master’s thesis at the Institute. The Institute currently has student and professor exchange agreements with several universities from these countries, such as: Central European University (CEU, Vienna), Giessen University (from Germany), Utrecht University (from the Netherlands), University of Macedonia (from Greece), Plovdiv University (from Bulgaria), Faculty of Media and Communication, Belgrade (from Serbia) and Pantheon University from Athens (Greece). Interested students enrolled at the Institute will have the opportunity to spend part of their education at one of these universities. The institute has a library of over 1000 books and more than 1000 titles of certified electronic books and professional journals. Numerous international visiting professors can also serve as your mentors. You can check the list of international and domestic professors, and full time or visiting professors on this link.
