“As a student from Morocco, I can state that Serbia is not a popular place to go abroad to study, but I have found that it can be the best option for a variety of reasons. I was one of four students from the Kingdom of Morocco chosen to receive this fully funded scholarship and I am so excited to pursue my bachelor’s studies here” ~ Nouhaila Boussaq
The scholarship organisers first met us at Nikola Tesla Airport, assisted us with everything and took us to the Radojka Lakić Student Dormitories on Avala. We were given free accommodation and three meals every day.
Furthermore, we received four months of intensive Serbian language courses from very appreciated professors at the Literature Faculty of the University of Belgrade. After passing the language exam, we received free translation to Serbian and recognition for our documents from the Agency of Qualification. We momentarily moved to the Student Dormitories in the city centre, where we enjoyed comfortable and good-quality rooms, as well as free food and health insurance. I am thankful for the support to my educational journey from this generous scholarship. It helped provide the push and motivation I needed to move forward with a positive attitude.
Besides the high quality of education and the recognition of Serbian degrees in many other countries, Serbia is an interesting and affordable country to pursue your studies in as an international student. I had the best student life experience in Serbia. I had access to a lot of social, extracurricular and fun activities in my university campus. Serbian cuisine is quite varied, since it’s a combination of the Greek and Turkish ones, so it’s very delicious. Like every student, I place a lot of value on having fun, and Serbians are well known for throwing great parties, especially in Belgrade. Another fact is that people are very friendly and welcoming, and I’ve met many people here who’ve had a positive influence on who I am today. Overall, I enjoyed every moment in Serbia through festivals, museums, galleries and parties, while admiring the architecture and the beauty of this Eastern European country.
Thank you once again for such an amazing opportunity for me. This first step that I made towards my dreams would not have been possible without the generosity of the “World in Serbia” Scholarship.
