Sixth EU Framework

An 1864 decree of Prince Alexandru Ioan Cuza converted the former St. Sabba Academy into the University of Bucharest, which presently comprises eighteen departments. Ever since, the University of Bucharest has been considered, within Romania and abroad, the country's leading educational and research institution. With its 140 years of prestigious tradition, UB is the perfect destination for everyone who wants to start or continue a prominent career. Its educational offer varies from undergraduate and graduate studies to doctoral and MBA programmes, as well as distance and eLearning opportunities.

A perpetual concern of the University of Bucharest is to meet the 21st century students' needs by offering high quality courses. New fields of interest have recently appeared. Discoveries in chemistry and biology, new theories in mathematics and physics, as well as new perspectives in social sciences, they are all discussed in the current curricula of the University of Bucharest. Students nowadays can take courses in different fields, regardless of their specialty. The European Credit Transfer System enables this process.

The University of Bucharest is integrated in a strong network of international programmes, such as SOCRATES, TEMPUS, COPERNICUS, CEEPUS, TEMPRA, PHARE or TACIS. Every year, hundreds of students of the University of Bucharest benefit from training or specialised study in universities of Western Europe, the United States, Canada, Japan, and some tens of foreign academics from all continents teach in the faculties of the University, while members of its faculty likewise teach at leading universities in other countries.
