Admission Procedures and Standards

International students follow essentially the same procedures as all domestic students in applying for admission. The admissions procedure ensures that applicants fulfill the necessary requirements to study at the high est level at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering at University of Belgrade. A candidate’s cultural background and international experiences are highlighted positively in the selection process, as Faculty continues its historic commitment to cultural diversity.

Undergraduate and post-graduate international students are strongly advised to have a minimum of €5,200 per annum in addition to tuition fees. Possession of these financial resources is essential for each full calendar year a student spends in Belgrade. The Faculty will not be able to finance students if for any reason their funds from overseas are restricted before the end of their course.

When to Apply

The opening date for applications for admission in October is: 21st June.


International students are not invited just for studying the whole prrogram in English at the Faculty, but also for the part of it. After getting international accreditation and EUR-ACE label, UB-FME is strongly off ering to European students the possibility of studiyng one semestar in Belgrade, through fully recognizable ECTS system and programs internationally accredited. In accordance with the Bologna principles, students from European countries have the opportunity to spend one or more semesters at the UB-FME, attend lectures and take exams, learn the local culture and habits. The international cooperation is accomplished through the ERASMUS MUNDUS and CEPUS programs, which imply the exchange of students and academic staff . There were several such students in the past (mostly due to fi nancial restrictions and prejudices), but this activity is now expected to be much more broadened.

Students at partner universities can study for one or two semesters at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering at University of Belgrade as part of an ERASMUS or direct exchange program.

Students studying on UB-FME have also the possibility to study abroad through the same exchange programs, and also to fi nish the internship through well-established IAESTE program. Also, some departments organize national and international excursions for students, thus making them acquainted with industry colleagues and facilities. Skill praxis (internship), as a part of study program, may also be performed in such manner.
