Jona Haxhialiu over receicing a scholarship from UCG (Albanian student Class of 2019)

"Here at UCG. you truly study differently and that is how you become a multi-skilled individual. UCG also offers a variety of scholarships and student grants. I was awarded the USP scholarship, and for me it was like a dream come true because otherwise I would not have been able to continue with my studies. As you get to know all the students and staff, which certainly for international students is very nice, for me UCG feels like a second home."
