Bratislava International School of Liberal Arts (BISLA), Marlboro’s partner in Slovakia, has a tight-knit community with academic and social vibes that closely resemble Marlboro! BISLA offers small classes, often no larger than 10 students. If a unique campus and small faculty-student ratio is a necessity in your studies and lifestyle, BISLA could be a great fit!
Academics: Courses at BISLA are very specialized and focus on Political Science, with concentrations in either International Relations, Political Thought, or Sociology. Extracurricular, non-credited courses are available as well for topics such as presentation skills and argumentation skills.
Language: All courses at BISLA are taught in English.
Location: BISLA is located in the heart of Bratislava, a short walk from the Danube River and from the city’s Old Town. Bratislava is one of the smaller capitals of Europe with a population of about 450,000 people, and it enjoys a combination of modernity and history with its castles and modern landmarks. Full of parks and surrounded by vineyards, the city is biking- and walking-friendly. Bratislava is also conveniently close to the borders of Austria, Hungary, and the Czech Republic, making travel to Vienna, Budapest and Prague easily accessible.
