Economists Club

The Economist Club, part of the A.U.K, was established in late 2010 by the students and for the students. The club’s mission is to give the students the opportunity to expand and apply their knowledge in Economics, apart from the lectures that are taught at A.U.K. Different guest lectures, interactive debates, tutorials, and trips were just some of the activities organized by this club. Also, making internships available to students is another important goal this club wants to accomplish. In its work, the young economists are grateful to have had the unlimited support from Dr. Bislimi.

MUN Club

Model United Nations is an academic simulation of the United Nations that aims to educate participants about current events, topics in international relations, diplomacy and the United Nations agenda. The participants role-play as diplomats representing a nation or NGO in a simulated session of an organ (committee) of the United Nations, such as the Security Council or the General Assembly. Participants research a country, take on roles as diplomats, investigate international issues, debate, deliberate, consult, and then develop solutions to world problems.

The A.U.K. Model United Nations Club was formally established one year ago by A.U.K. students. The A.U.K. MUN operates based on its framework and its MUN board within the structure of the A.U.K. Student Government. It brings together A.U.K. students on extracurricular bases who share a common interest in discussing and debating on current issues. Currently, the club consists of 16 delegates and other active club members. The A.U.K. MUN Clubs future aspirations is to double the number of members so that the competitiveness of our distinguished delegates is increased, in hopes to effectively bring together an honorable delegation to represent academically A.U.K. and Kosovo worldwide.

Music Club

The Music Club at the A.U.K., was created at the beginning of the academic year in 2012-2013. The mission of the Music club was to give students the opportunity to exercise their musical talents with other students at the A.U.K. We host different concerts and other musical events throughout the year, coordinating with other clubs to ensure that music club members are as active as possible. The club also provides beginner lessons to those who are interested in learning the guitar. Overall, it is a great experience for students, as they can work together in creating music while improving their own skills.

Visual Arts Club

The idea behind the Visual Arts Club is to bring together all the students who love painting, photographing, designing, and other artistic skills. Member students of the Visual Arts Club will be able to learn the management side of the arts as well as the creative side.

We have organized many art events and exhibitions at A.U.K. The first was the “Let’s Plug It In’’ art exhibition event. At this exhibition, we showed art work produced in Fine Art Class and media and design classes. This was a very successful art exhibition, since it brought many students of A.U.K. to come and visit the gallery as well as many people outside of the A.U.K.

In 2012, we were able to successfully organize the event called “The Photograph” where every student of A.U.K. and also faculty members could submit their photographs to be shown on the art exhibition. The event was held at February 16, 2012 at the “Bluespace” art gallery of A.U.K. Around 200 photographs were exhibited, and many of them sold. Over 35 students participated on organizing this event.
