University of Belgrade


The University of Belgrade is a state-owned university. Its activities – higher education and scientific research – are in public interest and are strictly defined by law. The main source of finance is the budget of the Republic of Serbia, although the University and its faculties may also gain additional income by working within their core activities.

Faculties of the University are separate legal persons, i.e. they have their own management bodies, whose responsibilities are regulated by the Law on Universities, as well as business and financial independence from the University.

The origin of the University of Belgrade can be tracked down to the beginning of the 19th century, when Dositej Obradović founded the College in 1808. Today it has 31 faculties and 11 institutes, with around 90000 students and 5000 academic staff.
