Christos Alexopoulos, PhD, Director of the College of Applied Health Sciences, Ćuprija

Serbian College, European Standards

In the last two years, many aspects of education in Serbia have been established on a solid basis thanks to reforms that have been carried out

With the aim of creating a high quality education system like those in highly developed countries, the first Greek who completed Medical Faculty and Doctoral Studies in Serbia and became director of a higher education institution, proves that the Serbian education system can enable a prosperous future.

What is your opinion of education reforms in Serbia?

– We support the efforts of the government and ministries to carry out reforms. We have the same goal, and that is a system comparable to those in developed countries. I invite students from all around the world especially Greece to follow my footsteps and come to Serbia. We expect foreign students to come back, as it used to be 30 years ago, but we also want those who are already here to stay.

CAHS Ćuprija is the first health college to implement the ISO 9001: 2015 standard. What are the benefits?

– The College of Applied Health Sciences Ćuprija is the first medical school to implement the quality management system according to the standard SRPS ISO 9001: 2015. In this way, we will raise the organization of work to a higher level, ensuring continuous improvement of the quality of work in all operational aspects.

Your school has recently received an energy passport. Why is that important?

– In order to fulfil the key requirements of environmental protection regulations while reducing the consumption of energy, whose price is steadily increasing, our College has recognized the importance of a more efficient design of the system of regulation. A “green school” is the future, and we have taken many environmental measures such as reducing the use of resources for heating and the normal work of the school. For example, we have introduced gas heating, replaced regular lights with led panels and improved insulation in all the rooms.

What is the ECDL Certificate, which you were also awarded?

– In the era of a knowledge-based society, a successful career requires constant improvement and professional development from each individual, primarily in the field of information and communication technologies.

We therefore decided to computerize students and staff according to the highest global standards. ECDL certification programmes guarantee more efficient use of technology and enable an increase in overall productivity, faster achievement of operational goals, and saving money and time. The ECDL certificate is recognizable in more than 150 countries all over the world.

You have received many awards such as Captain Misa Anastasijevic, Car Lazar etc. What do awards mean to you?

– When you do your job seriously and try to do your best, then your acknowledgements are a confirmation that your efforts are recognized and rewarded by the profession. That is always a nice feeling and an additional wind in your sails. I would also like to mention the awards Danube Captain, the Diplomacy and Commerce Magazine award for contributions to the development of education, and certificate for contributing to higher education, awarded by the College of Applied Vocational Studies in Vranje.

What is the advantage of you being Greek in Serbia, and how do you feel here?

– After living more than 20 years in Serbia, I feel at home. Our two countries are separated by a thin line and the people are very close. Greece supports Serbia’s positive initiatives showing it is a trusted friend and there to help, advise, warn and share information related to the EU. My advantage is that I have the understanding for the transition process that happened earlier in Greece, and my experience can be applied to the Serbian education system.
