The Faculty of Sports of the University “Union – Nikola Tesla” continues with the practice of investing in the education of young and successful athletes. Although we are a private higher education institution, we can boast that over 60 athletes and sports experts are awarded annually with scholarships, on the basis of the cooperation agreement that we have with the Olympic Committee of Serbia, the national branch sports associations and the most refined clubs.
Successful cooperation with the Red Star Basketball Club is continuing from year to year, and the new students of our Faculty from this school year are Ognjen Dobric and Aleksa Radanov. First team players of the red and white and occasional national team of Serbia were defined for the study program Management in Sport.
– It is a great thing that the Faculty of Sports supports young athletes in this way and, with its programs and adapted system of study, enables us who are in an active training and competition process to acquire education along with a sports career. According to this, the Faculty of Sport is unique and it is therefore not surprising that a large number of famous athletes have chosen to study here. I have to stress that Alex and I owe a great gratitude to our club, Red Star, who recognized the importance of education for active athletes, especially after graduation, and gave us the opportunity to get a degree – said Ognjen Dobric.
