The University of Pristina (Serbian: Универзитет у Приштини / Univerzitet u Prištini) is the name of the Serbian-language higher education institution that emerged after 1999 as a result of the Kosovo War. Despite its official name[1] it is also referred to as the University of Kosovska Mitrovica after its relocation to northern Kosovska Mitrovica in 2001.[2]

Overview[edit]

Following the end of the Kosovo War in 1999, the Kosovo Serb faculty relocated to Serbia (from 1999 to 2001 the seat was in Kruševac) and two years later to the northern Kosovo. The seat is currently in Kosovska Mitrovica.

The faculties of the university have been recognized by UNMIK and EUA under the name University in Mitrovica,[3] and the university is additionally recognised by the Serbian government as a Serbian institution. It is a member of the Conference of the Universities of Serbia (KONUS)[4] and European University Association[5][6][7][8][9] and has established cooperations with the Balkan Universities Network and numerous institutions worldwide (France, Russia, Italy, Norway, Oman, Ireland, UK.).[10]

Statistics and university organisation[edit]

The academic year runs from 1 October through 30 September, organized in two semesters, with 30 weeks of teaching per year.

Pristina University had 14 faculties with about 18,000 students and over 1,300 faculty and staff members in 1999.[11][12] Following the Kosovo War, about 6,000 students transferred to other universities in Serbia.[12] In 2001 (while in Kruševac) it had 17,000 students. From 1999 to 2001 about 2,000 students graduated from the University of Priština, 50 students was awarded Magister degrees, and 20 earned their doctorates.[13] After moving back to Kosovo only 6,500 students continued their education at this university.[14] In 2004, the university had 10 faculties with about 8,000 students and enrollment quota of 1,200 students.[15] In August 2007 it had 9,320 students, over 700 faculty and about 200 staff members.[16][17][18] Its enrollment quota was 2,726 students.[19] About 45% were from Kosovo, 30% from Serbia, 25% from Montenegro. There was also a smaller number of students from Republic of Macedonia and Bosnia and Herzegovina.[20] Currently, there are 10.264 students, 730 faculty, and 320 staff members.[21]

History[edit]

The original university was opened in Socialist Republic of Serbia, Yugoslavia, in the city of Priština, for the academic year 1969/1970[22][23] and functioned as the University of Priština until 1999. However, owing to political upheaval, war, successive mutual expulsions of faculty of one ethnicity or the other, and resultant pervasive ethnic-based polarisation, currently, there are two separate, disjoint institutions, both using the same name, albeit each notated idiosyncratically, to reflect their polarized ethnic identity and divergent physical locations, separate Albanian and Serbian entities. University of Priština situated at Kosovska Mitrovica is a Serbian entity displaced from the city of Priština in 1999, conducting education in Serbian language, backed by the Government of Serbia[24] (recognized by United Nations Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK) since 2002 but under the name University of Mitrovica[3][25][26][27]) [11][23][28] having taken up physical residence in North Kosovska Mitrovica, a city in the northern ethnically Serbian region of Kosovo.
