Quality of Education


Would you like to succeed in a globalized world?

Are you interested in studying global issues that concern young people?

Would you like to understand different cultures and politics, or dive into the world of history, philosophy, art and politics?

A liberal arts education offers you all of this! Not only will will it equip you with the skills you’ll need to get an engaging job as a young professional, but you’ll become a knowledgeable citizen who can benefit society.

Bratislava International School of Liberal Arts (BISLA) is a liberal arts college, the first of its kind in central Europe. Situated in Bratislava, near the borders of four countries – Slovakia, Austria, Hungary and the Czech republic – BISLA’s beautiful campus is right next to the historical centre of Bratislava, which offers you a real European environment and a vibrant atmosphere. You will study in English, in international classes led by excellent academics from Slovakia and around the world.

High quality education

BISLA’s focus on critical thinking skills, attention to development of personal relations, and engagement in broader community have brought results in the quality of education offered at BISLA. OECD’s 2013 survey, Assessment of Higher Education Learning Outcomes brought confirmation that our approach to education is right.

Located in the heart of Europe

From Bratislava, Vienna, Prague and Budapest are all just a short train ride away. Or you can experience the wonderful Slovak countryside, where you will find, among other beautiful places, one of the few remaining areas of Europe that remains almost untouched by human civilization.
