Fahrudin Sabljakovic


Fahrudin Sabljaković, a young man from Cazin since his student days, was included in that part of the youth who had no ambition to leave their country as soon as they got their diploma and title.
I wanted to stay in my Cazin. I love the city and the people, and I knew that I needed a quality education to be able to look for a job among my fellow citizens. Cazin is full of intellectuals of various profiles with brilliant careers, and my ambitions were to catch up with them. I could only do that with knowledge, the right competencies and skills. I entered the Faculty of Law at the Pan-European University "Apeiron" in Banja Luka in 2009. At that time, I was not yet fully aware of what this higher education institution could offer me. I was an active member of the Student Parliament, I tried to use everything I could in those four years of study. I attended all the lecturers' lectures that the University organized for us, which were not related to teaching, and were closely related to the profession I wanted to pursue. I graduated on the topic "The role of the police, the judiciary and other protection entities in the prevention of violence against children in the family" and obtained the title of graduate lawyer. In the same year, I enrolled in the master's degree under the mentorship of prof. dr sci med Aleksandar Milić on the topic Extensity and intensity of psychological expertise in court proceedings and defended it with a grade of 10 in 2016. Everything I learned at the Pan-European University was a ticket for the Municipal Court of Bosanska Krupa to open the door for my professional career, and I am currently doing an internship specialization for the possibility of continuing to work professionally, and I am also preparing for the bar exam, said Fahrudin.
This young master of legal sciences said that the most important thing for him was that he was able to stay in his country and among the people he grew up with. The condition for this is to find adequate employment, which is not always possible. I managed to enter the business world and the job I love with the help of a lot of knowledge that I acquired through both theoretical and practical classes during my studies, and we had plenty of it. Our teachers were excellent lecturers whose goal was to teach us in the right way what will be required of us in the real world of law enforcement, and to use our skills and acquired scientific knowledge to make our hometown a better place to live, Fahrudin added.

Juliana Delac


The Faculty of Law opened the door to the business world in Dublin
Watch the story of Julijana Delač, our student from Croatia, who lives and works in Ireland today
Pan-European University Apeiron was my choice mostly because of the degree which, as its name suggests, is recognized throughout Europe. I financed my studies then by working in an accounting office, acquiring my financial knowledge partly at work, partly at university. After I graduated and obtained a bachelor's degree in law, i.e. degree in law, I moved to Ireland. Although my knowledge of English was already at a high level thanks to my previous education, it is difficult to perfect a business foreign language without additional practice and education. My first job was in the hospitality industry where I honed my conversational English with the hosts with a strong Irish accent and with that I began to explore the possibilities of a more "serious" career. I realized that as a lawyer it is difficult for me to look for a job, even though it is an EU member state, Common Law is still very much represented here, as well as the condition that legal activity can only be performed by a person who speaks the native Irish language, i.e. Gaelic. Given that I did not see my opportunity in that field, I found out that with additional education, I could possibly work as a "Legal Secretary", which is a lawyer's secretary who should have complete knowledge of the Irish legal system, and that is a job that is very well paid and highly respected.
In the meantime, I discovered that bookkeeping is actually one of the most valued and sought after because - few people like bookkeeping, but everyone needs it. As a job from my student days, it was extremely interesting to me and I decided to find a way to incorporate that activity here. I completed a short course in the basics of bookkeeping in order to master the terminology, and that's when my search for the right job began. Very quickly, I received an invitation to an interview from an employment agency, where they let me know that the mere fact that I graduated from a recognized law school was enough to distinguish me from the sea of ​​candidates, especially since I indicated in my resume which fields I covered - along with all professional legal subjects, domestic and international, also economics, philosophy, history, sociology, informatics and foreign languages. Another advantage for me was my expressed desire to progress in that area, which I demonstrated by attending an additional course, as well as the stated plan to continue my education by enrolling in ACCA studies. The third was previous work experience, which is always an advantage, but not a condition when applying for the so-called junior or trainee trainee positions. Two rounds of interviews led me to my current position as an accountant trainee, where I am honing my knowledge for further education and, despite everything, I am preparing to finish my master's studies at Apeiron in the near future. When enrolling at the world-renowned ACCA, even two courses are recognized with a master's degree from the Pan-European University "Apeiron", related to "company law", which is a great recognition for the institution as well as a significant financial relief.
So, to summarize, until the moment you come to Ireland and decide to find a good job in the field you are interested in, it is advisable to enroll in any course, online or at one of their many faculties, a workshop, an internship. It is also advisable to find any job at the beginning, in order to improve your communication skills and learn some of the desired phrases, because here "small talk" is especially important when getting to know each other and making a good impression. Positive approach to work and "I can do" attitude to tasks. Put a lot of emphasis on education in the resume, because sometimes after the student obligations are over and the diploma is on the wall, it is easy to forget how impressive it is to overcome all those steps, and many employers out there are eager to hear what qualities and knowledge we bring with us from our homeland, and often they are much more complex and useful than the education that people have in the West.

Aleksandar Galić, fitness coach of the First League of the "Emirates" Football Club in the United Arab Emirates (Ras Al Khaimah) in mid-July at the Faculty of Sports Sciences earned the title of graduate professor of physical education.
On the way from being a player, to being a fitness coach, to being a professor, sports dominated my life. When you work with people and you have to get the most out of the players physically, and the focus is on their health, you have to give an adequate response. It was this academic crown that gave me a different, more comprehensive view of what is required in sports and what is expected from sports. Competences through four years of excellent academic studies have perfected and equipped me so that in the future I can devote myself to sports and with different social groups, especially people with special needs. This creates the feeling that I have overcome myself in one light, actually opened other paths for upgrading my personal professional career - Aleksandar points out.
He has been working on the physical preparation of Emirates football players for five years. The fitness coach was previously at OFK Belgrade, but also at FK Radnički – Kragujevac.
As a young forward, he played for Partizan and Borac from Banja Luka.
Throughout my studies, I had high expectations from the teaching staff, and in sports terms, from the knowledge in the "final", and from how useful and necessary it will be. It is very likely that I will continue my academic journey in the Master's study of the study program Sport in targeted groups at the Faculty of Sports Sciences of the Pan-European University, concludes Aleksandar.
