European University of Tirana is a leading university and research centre in Albania, established in full compliance with the criteria of the Bologna Charter, including study programmes in the three levels of study: BA; MA and Doctorates. UET engages in high quality teaching and research as well as exchange programmes and capacity building projects with local and international partners in the following major disciplines: economy, finance, business, law, social sciences, political sciences, and communication and information technology. UET is already participating in projects funded by the European Commission, such as: Life Long Learning Programme – Jean Monnet Chair (for the first time in Albania) LLP – Tempus Project (3 Tempus project) Erasmus Mundus; European Programme for Science and Technology (COST); Erasmus + KA1 Credit Mobility (six projects); Erasmus+ KA2/Capacity Building for Higher Education Institutions (two projects).
UET is particularly interested in the link between study programmes, research and labour market as well as the community. As such, UET has established the Labour Market Boards per each Department which are composed of highly qualified professionals from the governmental sector, private enterprises and businesses; CSOs, HEIs etc. The purpose of the board is to provide feedback and insights in regards to the needs/demands of the labour market so as UET can link education, research and study programmes with the labour market and needs of the society. In addition, they serve as a network for job opportunities for students. In addition, the UET Alumni Association and the Student Services work towards the link between education and the job market.
UET is particularly interested in the internationalisation of its study programmes and thus it seeks to build successful partnership with other institutions in the region, in Europe and now also in the USA. UET has established the network Next Europe, which brings together leading universities in the Western Balkans and research centres in Europe (LSEE, UCL SSEES, EUI, CEU, Sciences Po etc.) with research expertise and interest in Albania and South East Europe.
UET has a pool of highly qualified researchers, lecturers and project managers and it works closely with a well-established network of higher education institutions, businesses, research institutes and other stakeholders. UET pays particular importance to its strategic communication, visibility of actions, dissemination of information, knowledge-sharing and exchange of experiences and know-how.
