The Faculty of Sport and Physical Education, University of Belgrade, is a scientific and educational institution which provides instruction of PE teaching staff, recreation and sport-related professionals continuously since 1946. The roots of the Faculty go back as far as 1938 when the first one-year school for training professionals in our field was established. In 1939 the School for Physical Education, which was a college-level institution, started working.
Starting from the fact that higher education is the basis of development and economic progress of a society based on knowledge, promotion of human rights and fundamental freedoms, the mission of the Faculty is to provide the highest academic standards as well as knowledge and skills in line with the projected needs of the society and the national development. The permanent mission of the Faculty is its commitment to strive for improvement of higher education quality and its inclusion into the single European area of higher education.
The facilities of the Faculty of Sport and Physical Education in Košutnjak include the main building, gyms, dormitory and a restaurant. The main Faculty building, purposefully constructed between 1962 and 1968, meets the requirements in relation to theoretical instruction, both for lectures and theoretical exercises. Two large lecture halls with 160 seats each and two small lecture halls with 80 seats each, are equipped with the appropriate audio-visual equipment (overhead projector, sound system and video projector). There are two classrooms, each with place for 36 students, an IT classroom and a specialized classroom for a group of medical subjects (Medical-biological unit and the Psychological unit) within the Didactic and research laboratory (MIL). A celebration hall, also equipped with modern audio-visual equipment, is often used for smaller groups of students and for defending graduate papers. The dean's office hall, arranged for meetings is also used for defending graduate papers. The Reading Room, located within the library, equipped with networked computers and connected to the Internet can accommodate up to 30 students. It can also be used for teaching. The open football pitch with grass surface, the track and field for athletics and surfaces that can be used as handball, volleyball and basketball courts are located on the Faculty area. There are four open clay tennis courts, two of which are covered during winter and transformed into balloon sports hall. The immediate vicinity of Košutnjak park forest provides more free spaces used for practical training (jogging trails, meadows for exercises, etc.).
