WHY EPOKA UNIVERSITY Every day, each of us thinks about experiences, our daily activities that affect or change our lives. But there is an experience, that mostly happens once in a lifetime and you have to make one choice. In front of you there are many alternatives, but you have to take a decision. You will choose a university. What comes to your mind when you think about the best university in Albania? What are your expectations? Are you looking for a university that is based on the American Education System, but at the same time all offered programs are compatible with the European System? Or a university whose medium of instruction is English? Maybe you are looking for a university that has the most modern university campus, incorporated with the natural surroundings that facilitate learning and community life. Or moreover, you are looking for such qualities like excellent academics, brilliant professors, and selected international academic staff? Perhaps you are looking for a university that has all of these, but also you need a university which includes student exchange programs and double diploma? Maybe the graduation is not the only thing that matters to you. You need and you are looking for a university and staff that care about your future, your career and support you through career planning, internships and mentorship projects. Or maybe you pay special attention to a place of selected friendship, entertainment opportunities, cultural and sports activities and selected social life. A place of arts, cultures and living tradition that will inspire you as you connect what you learn with what you live and opens a window for your future may be the perfect place for you? You have the passion and you are looking for something that will enable you see the world differently, an institution that becomes a partner in bringing all these together? A place where your passion drives research and your research contributes to the society. What if Epoka University has all of these and were your university, the realisation of all your expectations?
