The University of New York Tirana (UNYT) was founded in 2002 as a part of the New York College (NYC) Network of Educational Institutions and was the first private University in Albania. UNYT received its institutional accreditation from the Albanian Ministry of Education and Sciences and was recently institutionally reaccredited by the Ministry of Education and Sport.
Situated in the heart of Tirana, the capital city of Albania, UNYT aspires to establish itself as a dynamic, multicultural, and leading center for higher education in the Balkans and beyond. The mission of UNYT is to provide students with the opportunity to obtain university degrees at the Bachelor, Master, or Ph.D. level, in a variety of academic and professional specializations, in collaboration with prestigious American and European universities.
The diversity of diplomas offered at UNYT includes an American Bachelor’s degree awarded by the State University of New York, Empire State College, and a European Bachelor’s Degree with a duration of 3 years study program that leads to the award of a European Bachelor’s Degree awarded by UNYT and licensed by the Albanian Ministry of Education, Sport, and Youth. During their studies, students may also register with SUNY/ESC to receive an American Bachelor Degree.
Many graduates now work for prestigious companies in Albania and abroad, while others continue their graduate-level studies in top western universities including Harvard University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, London School of Economics, etc. Since 2018, UNYT is recognized as the “Harvard of the Balkans” after the 2018 acquisition by the Turkish Maarif Foundation.
UNYT has recently entered new premises in one of the most pleasant neighborhoods in Tirana. UNYT campus offers a possibility for the students to enjoy a complete experience from the educational side to the entertainment aspect. The campus provides special premises for extracurricular activities such as an amphitheater, a fully equipped library with study rooms, computer labs, and marvelous surrounding nature.
The UNYT campus also offers a fully equipped Athletic Area where students engage in activities such as football, basketball, ping pong, and volleyball.
The UNYT library aims to create an inspiring environment for study and research. As far as the information is concerned, students can access it not only through the physical library, which currently numbers 7000 titles of academic books of multi-disciplinary content but also through the online library, which contains numerous scientific e-books and e-journals.
Supporting the development of online learning within higher education and responding to the demands of our students and academic staff for multiple copies of texts and simultaneous access to a rich collection of academic titles at any time, the university has subscribed to two electronic databases – JSTOR and EMERALD, so offering the possibility to full-text search through their collections. In addition, through the partnership with Empire State College, UNYT students, and academic staff are able to access databases such as EBSCO, ProQuest, GALE, etc.
