The lecturers of the Centre for Serbian as a foreign language are all the professors and teaching assistants of the Department of the Serbian language.
The need for the establishment of the Centre stemmed from the fact that Niš, as an academic and a cultural centre, is a city that attracts many foreign citizens. Besides, there are also people who are interested in learning Serbian, due to different life needs and circumstances, and, in this way, they can receive an adequate certificate about the acquired knowledge. The formation of the Centre was very significant both the Faculty of Philosophy and the city of Niš since such a type of Centre did not exist anywhere south of Belgrade. Assistant professor Irena Cvetković Teofilović has been appointed the Head of the Centre and the secretary is Jelena Stošić.
