The Fan Noli University is a higher education university and former institute of higher education, based in the Republic of Albania, and established in 1971. Fan Noli has around 4,000 students across two campuses, based in Korçë, and Pogradec, respectively.

History[edit]

The university was first established as an Institute of Higher Education, and grew out of the additional HE operations of the local Filial High School in Korçë, on 15 October 1968.

In 1994 the university was renamed in honour of the former Prime Minister and founder of the Albanian Orthodox Church, Fan S. Noli.

Education[edit]

The Filial High School began teaching paired Higher Education courses in Language and Literature, Mathematics and Physics, History and Geography, and Biology and Chemistry.

The reconstituted Higher Institute of Agriculture of Korçë began operating as a separate body in 1971, teaching Higher Education courses in Agricultural Studies. On January 7, 1992, two additional schools were established; the Teaching, and Business Schools.
