Faculty of Sport, University Union - Nikola Tesla
Faculty of Sport, University “Union – Nikola Tesla” in Belgrade, was founded in 2012 as the first institution of higher education in Serbia whose core academic field is sport. In this respect, the following undergraduate courses
1. Coaching in Sport
2. Management in Sport
3. Sport Journalism
and postgraduate – master courses were created at the Faculty:
1. Sport Management
2. Management in Tourism and Recreational Sport
All the undergraduate courses consist of 4 years of study and in that period each student gains 240 ECTS credits. Students with higher ambitions have the opportunity to continue their studies and earn additional 60 ECTS (300 ECTS altogether) at master’s degree.
Faculty of Sport in Belgrade, in addition to the regular academic education, is also oriented to informal types of education through implementation of the programs of vocational training for performing certain professional tasks in sport. Our aim is to keep this part of the educational process of sports experts at high level and thus contribute to the improvement and development of Serbian sport.
Vocational training programs were introduced in the obligatory practice of sports organizations and higher education institutions in Serbia due to the large number of former athlete and current sports workers, who perform a wide range of activities in the field of sports, but have no formal education. Basically, they need vocational training for the acquisition of the working permit, which allows them to work in sports organizations, in accordance with the law.
The method of gaining the appropriate sports titles is clearly determined by the applicable legal and regulatory provisions and includes the fulfillment of certain formal-legal and educational and professional requirements and criteria. It is realized through joint work and cooperation with sport organizations and higher education institutions in the field of sport and physical education.
