Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

Studying at University "Hasan Prishtina" Prishtinë was a really good and fun experience. The lessons where in Albanian, but most of the books and the studies we did where in English. Still, in my future Master's Degree I would like to have an only English or half English half German Program.
