The University of Sarajevo is a public university located in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is the largest and oldest university in the country, as well as the oldest institution of tertiary learning in the former Yugoslavia, tracing its initial origins to 1537 as an Islamic madrasa.
With 20 faculties, three academies and three faculties of theology and with 30,866 enrolled students as of 2014, it ranks among the largest universities in the Balkans in terms of enrollment. Since opening its doors in 1949, a total of 122,000 students received bachelor's degrees, 3,891 received master's degrees and 2,284 received doctorate degrees in 45 different fields. It is now widely regarded as the most prestigious university in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and employs more than one thousand faculty members.
At the beginning of 1996, the University of Sarajevo entered the phase of post-war physical and academic renewal and reconstruction. Physical reconstruction is aimed at the reconstruction and reconstruction of destroyed buildings, replacement of destroyed educational and scientific equipment and renovation of student dormitories. Significant results were achieved in this field and conditions for improving the quality of study have been formed in certain areas. However, despite numerous reconstruction projects, the University of Sarajevo has not yet reached its full pre-war potential. The quality and number of student dormitories is still significantly below the required level, and since the working conditions could be much better, there are also not enough teachers. In addition, the war caused a rift, even among scholars, and many who worked at the university before the war did not continue to work after.
