What is the Experiential Learning program?
Experiential Learning program is a program that VentureUP offers to University of Prishtina students the purpose of which is to provide specific-skill training, that UP curricula currently lacks, to non-entrepreneurial students.
Experiential Learning offers a unique opportunity for all University of Prishtina students to utilize all available resources to further develop themselves, their experiences, and their ideas.The University of Prishtina counts more than 50,000 enrolled students in all faculties and departments and represents a large pool of potentially mobile youth. Additionally, we understand that parallel to the need for entrepreneurship support, there is a need for the improvement of employability of UP students who do not aspire to become entrepreneurs.
