Founded

1864

Description

Founded in 1864, the University of Bucharest (UB) was formed out of the former Saint Sava Academy, which itself was established in 1694. It is a modern public research university and is the second oldest in Romania.

Today, UB caters for both undergraduate and postgraduate students with degrees offered in social sciences, humanities and natural sciences. There are roughly 32,000 students including 1,000 foreign students. Around 40 undergraduate fields of study are available with more than 100 majors as well as 180 postgraduate programmes.

In total, there are 19 faculties: Mathematics and Informatics; Physics; Chemistry; Biology; Geography; Geology and Geophysics; Business and Administration; Law; History; Sociology; Psychology and Education Sciences; Political Sciences; Philosophy; Journalism; Letters; Foreign Languages and Literature; Orthodox; Roman-Catholic; and Baptist Theology. There are also 21 doctoral schools.

The university’s stated priority areas of research are: the environment, new materials, and cognitive sciences.

Spread throughout the city, it is difficult to pinpoint the exact boundaries of the university campus. However, its two main buildings are considered to be the Old Building, situated in University Square, housing many of the faculties, and the Kogălniceanu Building, which is near the Opera House.

The Carol 1 Central University Library, which dates back to 1865, was the first large university library in Romania to introduce an integrated computer system. It now has an integrated system with fourteen branches around the university all functioning within its faculties.

UB has partnerships with a number of European and international organisations. For example, it is a member of the Association of Universities in European Capitals, Central Eastern European University Network, and the European University Association, among others.

It has over 300 ERASMUS agreements with foreign universities with hundreds of students travelling overseas every year and many incoming. Roughly 200 agreements with foreign universities allow conferences, research courses and special lectures to take place at the university each year.

The University of Bucharest is one of sixteen public research universities in the Romanian capital.

Every day I attend the university and I'm not sorry to be here! At the University of Bucharest, teachers taught internships with earnest and diligent. Many things I have learned here, for it is the source of knowledge. The University offers many opportunities such as Erasmus, volunteering in European companies and practice in the field you are studying. Here I have made many friends with whom I work in my field. I'm proud of this university because it was my dream and it was done.

Overall my experience has been great. I don't like the structure of the courses, it is pretty difficult to follow or to learn effectively from them. Also, online availability isn't a standard yet. The good part is that I feel the university makes many attempts through advertisement, jobs fairs and networking and it offers enough time for personal development.

I have chosen this faculty because it is one of the most important faculties of the University of Bucharest, being very appreciated abroad and the best in Romania. One of the aspects I appreciate the most is the fact that teachers are experienced, really qualified, determined and willing to teach. The information is well-structured and coherent, although there is no online alternative for the courses, which is a downside.

It's one of the most active National Universities in our Country located in the center of the Capital City. We had several practices during the Bachelor's and Master's degree. We gathered a lot of useful information and also combined knowledge with practical activities in different locations of the country in the environmental field. We managed to understand the environment and to share our knowledge to people around us but the main problem in our country is that the hiring opportunities in this field are very low. Could be just a national problem and maybe we didn't have the support from the University in order to follow our domain.

You get to learn a lot of things useful to your domain at the University of Bucharest and of course you come around with curricula that simply are of no interest to you. Besides that the internships are great and if they would be also paid in the near future than it will be almost perfect.

This university is making efforts to help and improve the education and the experience of students overall. What I suggest is: improving administrative issues like a better use of online and cloud resources.
