OSCE Kosovo Mission helps sustain Bosnian-language education

The Mission is currently implementing an assistance programme at the
Faculty of Education in Prizren, part of Prishtinë/Pristina
University, one of the two faculties that provide higher education in
the Bosnian language.

The Prizren facility lacks teaching staff and can barely secure
lectures for the three existing programmes: primary school teaching;
Bosnian language and literature; and technology and computer science
for high school teachers.

Esad Kurjeshepi, assistant professor in Prizren, says that professors
are being brought in from southern Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina
to teach courses, but often have to cancel their visits due to bad
weather and poor road conditions.

To establish more sustainable co-operation between Prizren and
faculties of education in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the OSCE Mission
purchased video conferencing equipment in March 2009. With the
Mission's help, Prishtinë/Pristina University signed collaboration
agreements with Sarajevo University on 25 May and with the
Universities of Mostar and Tuzla on 4 June.
