All courses will be taught by local and international professors and will be in English. Successful participants will gain an official Certificate of the Mitrovica Winter University which includes between 3 and 4 ECTS credits.
The two-week courses are organized together with cultural excursions and a recreational program. In addition, public discussions, lectures and other interactive events on prominent issues in society will take place. Therefore, the MWU offers you a unique opportunity to expand your academic knowledge and skills in different fields of study, while enjoying an exciting international atmosphere.
Lectures and classes are free for all students. Participants who study in Mitrovica and students from South East Europe can apply for a scholarship, which covers accommodation and food. In addition, they will receive a one-time stipend covering their travel costs. International students from Western Europe and beyond are welcome to participate, but have to cover the cost of participation, i.e. travel, accommodation and food, themselves. However, they will not be charged a tuition fee. For these participants, accommodation is provided at a modest price for the entire duration of the MWU (approximately €140,-)
