Students Testimonials

Nikola Lazarevski
Faculty of Law
Study programme: Applied political and international diplomacy

“I have chosen UGD because I think that in the last few years the education system at this university singles out in comparison to other educational institutions in our country. The course I have chosen to study, will enable me to get easier access to all legal institutions in our society in future, first as volunteer, and then I hope as an employed person. I am satisfied with the excellent functioning of the Career office, which helps us to obtain information in which companies and institutions there are available workplaces, and even prepares us through seminars and training how to write short CV, and how to behave during an interview.“

Marinela Serafimova

I come from Sv.Nikole and it is a real advantage, because it is a town close to Stip which redounds to decrease my expenses. This University has all the necessary conditions for advanced studying, e-library, e-index and e-learning make our studying easier.”

“The everyday expenses that we, the students, have at our University cannot be compared to those of the other universities in the country. The living standard in Stip is on such level that everybody can adapt to it. On the other hand, I can praise the conditions we have on our campuses. I have chosen this faculty and course for studying because I think that the economy in our country needs really qualified people and there is no doubt that this University creates the best graduates. As students at UGD we have the possibility to attend all cultural events organized by the Multimedia center, which is situated at our faculty. Many of my colleagues are included in sport activities which is a positive aspect of UGD, especially for quality fulfilling spare time.”

“As soon as I had completed the secondary school, I knew that UGD was my future. The only thing that took me a long time to think about was making a decision which faculty to choose among the thirteen faculties. I have chosen the Faculty of Philology, the English language course, because the knowledge and perfection of this language, which is a universal tool for communication, can offer me lots of opportunities for employment in future.“
