About the programmes
You can expect to study a range of introductory courses in your first year, covering key mathematics topics such as abstract algebra, calculus, complex numbers, differential equations, geometry, number theory, probability and statistics. You’ll then move on to more advanced study, and will need to choose from a range of elective courses. Computer science degrees deal with the theoretical foundations of information and computation, taking a scientific and practical approach to computation and its applications.

Teaching
Teaching methods include lectures, seminars and personal tutorials, practical sessions, guest speakers. This is all arranged in correlation with lectures/ professors. You will also spend a significant amount of time in doing personal study.

Language
Lectures are given in Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian. For exchange students it is possible to organize special consultations in English regarding their work, research, exams, paper work or mentorship. You have to check with the Faculty’s coordinator before applying for this institution.

Assessment
Assessment is by courseware, classroom tests and examinations. Group learning, teamwork, individual work and communication skills are assessed through group studies and reports as well as presentations. Practical work is also a part of the examinations.

Degree and qualifications
The first cycle lasts 3 years of study (total of 180 ECTS) in order to obtain the degree of Bachelor.
The second cycle lasts 2 years of study (total of 120 ECTS) and leads to a Master degree.
The third cycle lasts 3 years of study (total of 180 ECTS) in order to obtain the degree of PhD.

Career options
Career options for physics graduates are actually very diverse, including both research-based roles and more hands-on positions. A large number of physics students also pursue graduate education, and this path is likely to lead to a career in research. This could mean staying within the higher education sector, working for a public agency or joining a private research lab.
