Member of Bosnia-Herzegovina’s Presidency Sefik Dzaferovic hosted the best students from six public universities in Bosnia-Herzegovina with an average grade of 10.
Seven of them spoke with BiH Presidency Member Sefik Dzaferovic.
“I really hope that people in positions that give them the authority to make decisions, to give us space, that they won’t close our doors regardless, because I think I deserved to build my career in an area I like,” Esmeralda Suta from Faculty of Economics at the University Dzemal Bijedic in Mostar stated.
The top seven students said they wanted to stay in BiH after graduation.
However, students do not think that the authorities did and do enough to keep them, primarily to study and then work and stay in their home country.
“I do not think that the levels of government gave as much as they could, my education was financed more by non-governmental organizations and funds than by entities, cantons, I had scholarships, but I have to say that without these finances, studying would be impossible,” said Amna Muhamedovic, the best student at the Faculty of Law, University of Sarajevo.
“I think there can always be more, that a systematic approach is needed, since education and youth are built up of the state and society – at least this is the case with the most developed western countries and that we should strive for as much money as possible for education and for young people in general,” concluded Faris Hasanovic from the Faculty of Law, University of Tuzla.
Reception for best students is a practice of a Bosniak member of the presidency.
