ABOUT BIJELJINA

Slobomir P Univerzitet - Opština Bijeljina

It is indisputable that the freshmen who came from Bijeljina and Doboj will be a little easier these first days because they know these places, unlike their colleagues who come from other cities, so we wanted to and you are just starting out who these cities a little “help “! Bijeljina is the city and the seat of same municipality in the north-east part of the Republic of Srpska. It has a surface of 734km² and the total population is 150,000.

ACADEMIC PART

 _MG_0166You’ve signed college. Well, congratulations! You are now at the beginning of an interesting and exciting journey

Change

Regardless of whether you still live with your parents or alone in a new city, numerous questions and dilemmas that you may not immediately know the answer to are waiting for you. Sometimes you’ll probably be confused and unsure about what is expected of you. One of the most important tips to get you going in life is, “ask anything you do not understand.” Although it sounds very easy, believe me, this question will save a lot of time, wrong decisions, and disappointments.

Commitments

Faculty is very different from high school (if it was not so, it probably would not even exist), primarily due to numerous duties taking upon themselves with the status of a student.

First, find out the schedule of lectures and practice classes, and try to remember it well (or if you are one of those who believe in writing, have a copy of the schedule always in your pocket). Meet teachers and assistants and ask them what you do not understand. Remember, there are no stupid questions!

Attend practice classes and lectures regularly. Take my word, in addition to being mandatory, it really is much easier to master the material when it is revised regularly. Do your homework!

Seminar papers, in addition to carrying part of the assessment, also serve to tackle certain issues and learn new things.

Take colloquia, and be positively surprised when you realize that the grade which the professor just entered in your index card is the result of everything you accomplished (as well as what you did not) during the semester. Because, that is the essence of the Bologna Declaration.

Studying

How and when to study? Eternal issues that trouble all the freshmen in the world. Trust me, you’re no exception.

First you need to take a list of required reading. Each teacher must submit a list of required and additional reading. Tip: since we live in the information age, most of the information can be found on the Internet. Use e-opportunities as much as possible and get used to a new way of research.

Attend lectures and practice classes regularly and take notes. You will need most of it for your tests. Ask about anything that you do not understand! The professor will be more than happy to answer.

After all the preparations, you need only sit down and study. If you accept the previous advice about activities in the classroom, you’ll be surprised by your ability to master the material. Also, be persistent. Some areas will not be of interest to you. You will have to revise some of them several times. Some information will “refuse” to be adopted. It is important not to give up; the winner is not the one who never falters, but the one who quickly bounces back after the failure and moves on!

Entertainment

As you well know, college life does not consist of books and computers alone. During these four years, you’ll develop friendships that will last a lifetime.

During the year, the Student Union organizes many interesting events with entertaining and cultural character. So you’ll have the chance to enjoy parties, and to meet famous actors and enjoy theater performances.

Going to the popular “jade” will complement the experience of studying. You’ll have a great time and have the opportunity to enjoy the sea or the mountain with over a thousand peers from all parts of Bosnia and Herzegovina and the entire region.
