Family Adaptation Services

Moving to another country is always a serious psychological challenge. Learning a new language and foreign customs might be extremely difficult. Immigrants experience social, psychological, and cultural change when adapting to their new home. Changes in values, beliefs, and behaviours raise anxiety and negative emotions. The abandoned homeland, on the contrary, begins to evoke pleasant feelings and seems rational, true, and safe.

Some interesting facts about life in Serbia for your family

Education in Serbia

Like many other Central and Southeastern European countries, Serbia’s education system provides free, compulsory education from the ages of six to 15. This is undertaken at a primary school, and thereafter students can continue their education at a secondary school until they are 19. It is then that they can enter higher education, which can consist of college, university, art school, or a vocational college.

As an expatriate, your children will be entitled to full use of the local public school system while living in Serbia, although if you prefer there are a number of international schools and colleges that offer lessons in English or other languages. Many of these are located in the capital city, Belgrade, including the International School of Belgrade and the British International School, to name but a few examples.

Healthcare in Serbia

Healthcare in Serbia is state operated, and is funded by the collection of mandatory health insurance from its citizens. As an expatriate living and working in Serbia, you will be entitled to use this healthcare system provided you are working and are playing the necessary insurance contributions. However, depending on your country origin, you may encounter extra fees.

Many of the doctors and nurses in the bigger cities do speak English, but it is vital that you check before you make an appointment. There is also a large network of private hospitals and doctors, which can provide a better level of care. However, due to the fact that many hospitals are lacking in medical supplies and equipment, many expatriates prefer to visit other nearby countries with better healthcare facilities for major treatments or operations.


Belgrade and another city, Novi Sad, are the cultural hubs of Serbia, offering extensive nightlife as well as other cultural hotspots. Various cafes, sporting events and galleries are open across the cities to give those living there — especially the youth — plenty to do. The countryside also has a lot to offer with its abundance of places to go if one wanted to experience traditional Serbian life.
