April 02, 2015- American University in Bosnia and Herzegovina (AUBiH) hosted Danish Institute for Study Abroad (DIS) students for the third time as a result of a well established relationship and fruitful cooperation.
This Spring the students from various and well known American Colleges who are spending a year abroad at DIS are visiting Bosnia and Herzegovina. Their program organized by AUBiH included the visits to the Parliament of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Office of the High Representative in Bosnia and Herzegovina (OHR), the American Embassy in Bosnia and Herzegovina and among many lectures at AUBiH, US students from DIS had a lecture by the Ambassador Jonathan Moore, Head of the OSCE Mission to Bosnia and Herzegovina. Students also visited Srebrenica and took a hiking trip to Bjelasnica. AUBiH has a tradition to host students and professors from foreign universities, especially those coming from the United States. The programs AUBiH implements with other universities aim to familiarize foreign students with the political and economic situation through lectures at AUBiH, have meetings with relevant international and domestic policy makers at BiH’s political scene, get introduced to NGO sector, as well as meet and build friendship with students of AUBiH.
In addition, through such programs, AUBiH is involved in academic mobility as a very important segment of overall educational experience.
DIS is a Danish non-profit study abroad institution in Copenhagen with semester, academic year, and summer programs taught in English. Established in 1959, DIS offers American students engaging and challenging coursework enriched by field studies, hands-on learning opportunities, and study tours in Denmark and across Europe. DIS students are usually undergraduate juniors or seniors from approximately 200 highly selective U.S. universities.
