3. Which of the following statements correspond to your higher education system?
Higher education institutions can be either academically or professionally oriented. Serbian higher education is primarily regulated by the Law on Higher Education which came into force in 2005. Higher education activities are carried out through either academic or professional career studies. Serbia has three types of Higher Education institutions:Universities, Higher Education Colleges of Professional Career Studies (visoke
škole strukovnih studija) and Higher Education Colleges (of Academic Studies - visoke škole akademskih studija).

5.13. Please provide any additional relevant comments for consideration regarding general data on your country's higher education system.
By the academic year 2009/10 all higher education institutions have introduced the three-cycle structure with Bachelor, Master and Doctorate degrees. Bachelor programmes can be academically or professionally  oriented, and are accredited by 180 or 240 ECTS. A typical cumulative length of the Bachelor + Master  degree is 300 ECTS. The Serbian higher education system has some specific features. 
1. The professional studies have only two cycles: First cycle - Professional Bachelor (180 ECTS), Second cycle - Professional Specialist (60 ECTRS); 
2. The academic studies are performed in three cycles (first - Bachelor, second - Master and third - PhD), but the second cycle has the sublevel Academic specialization. At least 60 ECTS credits are allotted to  academic specialization if the Master study program has previously been completed. 
3. There is no short cycle recognized in either academic or professional studies; it is envisaged to introduce  the short cycle in the new Law on Higher Education.
