Personal comments
I must say that this communication area can be confused for many people who will read this part. Therefore, I will try to clarify a bit by saying that at the time I have studied in Banjaluka's university that was my home country and my mother tongue was spoken. However, now I am a resident of The Netherlands and a regular student of the University of Maastricht, which I consider at this point of time my home university. Since my whole study program is in English I have no communication problems. On the other hand, Dutch is a local language and also the one I have not spoken before. Therefore, currently I am improving my Dutch by following an intensive course.

Personal comments
Academic knowledge is quite good, but for a type of study such as economics or business, it lacks some practical application.

Final comments
Taking into consideration where the university is located, it is overall pretty well organized. A lot is done in order to improve the overall functionality of the university. The university is located in a very beautiful region, not far away from the Adriatic cost and as well as skiiing centres, with a lot of sun throughout a year. Local language is very important. An alternative is English, which is spoken by a lot of, especially, young people.
