Study Terms

The teaching process at FON University is organized in the new University campus in Aerodrom, on a surface area of about 30.000m2. It offers the most modern conditions for working and teaching, adapted to the implementation of ECTS. The University campus has amphitheatres with a capacity of 300 and 200 sitting chairs, as well as great number of smaller lecture rooms where the lectures, in accordance with the ECTS, can be followed by 25 or 35 students.

All faculties use the principles of the Bologna declaration in accordance with the ECTS in their teaching process. These studies offer mobility, lectures in smaller groups, practical work, studying more than one foreign language etc. The model is 3+2 or 4+1 years of studying depending on the faculty. The first two or three years within almost all faculties are general studies and in the fourth year the students can choose a more narrow area of interest.

Interactive teaching is also included and the conditions for these activities are adjusted to the necessities of each faculty. FON University highlights the practical work, which is a part of the European credit transfer system. We collaborate with institutions where our students can work during summer holidays, and thus differ from the state universities in the way that we pay more attention on the practical work. The state universities cannot achieve this due to the massive studying.

The working hours of the teaching and associate staff are 8 hours, same as for the administrative and technical staff, except for the employees whose work is connected with informing the students, registrations for examinations etc. who work in two shifts. The professors and teaching assistants have a constant communication with the students. Students can have limitless consultations referring to their studies, exams and studying materials. This approach toward communication is the most important contribution of the private education, which has improved the relation professor-student.

FON University has presented the concept of a digital university, which has been brought in these parts of Europe for the first time. Only few universities have presented this type of technology, and in Macedonia this is the only university of this type.

This means that students are going to have their books in an electronic version, the communication is going to be facilitated because they are going to be connected by wireless internet and thus they can exchange literature. FON has also bought a database of foreign literature that can be used by the students.

The students can get in touch with their teaching assistants and professors in real time by videoconference connections.

The examinations and the studying materials are going to be accessible through the system. They can use the resources by videoconference and listen to lectures of eminent professors.

This is achieved with the assistance of the Ministry of Information Society with the purpose of creating higher quality and to support the government’s agenda for creating a contemporary information society.

The whole investment in this project is about 1.5 million euro.

The investments include the wireless network covering the whole university. Supply of over 1000 digital books from domestic and foreign authors and the latest novelty – a free laptop for all new and existing students, which will allow them to follow the lectures in digitalized and contemporary form.
