One Student Review of University of Bucharest (Universitatea din București)

  • At the age of 19, after graduating highschool, I was totally confused. I haven’t took the time to think about my options on wich college should I choose. One day, my mom who is a secretary at a private university, told me she met a girl who just graduated PR at the University of Bucharest. After meeting that girl, I’ve founded out more about the university and I have decided to give it a try. So this is how my journey at University of Bicharest began.
    A big pro for this institution is the great prestige it has. Founded in 1864 through a general decree by Alexandru Ioan Cuza,The University of Bucharest comes 2nd after “Universitatea Princiara”( wich was built in 1694 ). Great minds graduated here, such as Mircea Eliade, Emil Cioran, Constantin Noica and so on.
    Another great thing is that, in 3 years of college, I had the chance and the opportunity to meet great teachers, with unique teaching methods and very interesting informations and experiences to provide. One of my favourites is Ms. Adela Rogojinaru, a very respected member of the EUPRERA (The European Public Relations Education and Research Association). Although she is a very severe teacher, I had the opportunity to learn about a lot of useful things for a PR professional, with the price of endless failed exams. This experiences made me stronger and I am very thankful to almost all my teachers.
    It’s cool to study right in the city centre. The bulding is located in “the University square”, a place full of history, one of the places where democracy arised in December 1989. It was very tempting to skip courses due to the proximity to the Historical City Centre, also known as the no. 1 leisure spot in Bucharest. That’s why not having a lot of money as a student is good!
    But enough with the good parts! The bulding is old and you can get really frightened in case of a powerful earthquaqe. The walls look pretty fragile and they could use some paint, at least. Changing classrooms only by stairs for three years can get pretty annouing. The bulding has two elevators: one for teachers and one for students. Needless to say that from 2008 to 2011 ( when I’ve studied here ) the students elevator has been permanently out of order. Meanwhile, the one for teachers, was newer and, of course, 100% functional.
    But the most unpleasant aspect was definetly the tuition fee. Ok, I had great teachers but paying almost 1000 euros every year could be pretty rough in a country where the average income is almost 250 euros. Unlike for the U.S. or most of other countries, in Romania, the tuition fee at private universities is almost as twice cheaper than the one at the so called state universities.
    Another minus is that teachers that are supposed to provide you assistance for your licence diploma are in fact very demanding and very hard to keep in touch with. You can’t work and finish college at the same time, especially in the last year of studies, because you have to literally run after them. Ok, they are busy people, but they have to fulfill their obligations as well!
    Studying at the University of Bucharest can be rough but when you apply for a job and your resumee shows that you have graduated there, that could be a big advantage for you. In Romania, as a fresh graduate looking for a job, it is better for you to have a diploma from a state university rather from a private one.
