He reminded that the total number of 26,000 students enrolled had enrolled the Faculty so far, and that every sixth of them managed to finish their studies. Prof. Kunić added that one of the aims of the Faculty should also be to encourage not just the educational scope of activities, but also the scientific one.
The Rector of the University of Banja Luka Prof. Milan Mataruga addressed the guests and pointed out the importance of the role of the Faculty for University development.
