University of Belgrade - Faculty of Sport and Physical Education is a scientifically-educational institution, which is continuously, since 1946, educating high- level educated stuff for the Physical Education teaching in schools, as well as for sports and recreation. The origin of the Faculty goes from 1938, when it was founded first one-year school for the education of the staff from our field, i.e. from 1939, when it was opened School for the Physical Education in the range of the College.

From 1946 to 1953 we used to work as The State Institute for the Physical Culture (hence the popular name DIF, which exists even now), and after that, from 1953 to 1956 as The Institute for the Physical Culture, in the period from 1956 to 1963 as the High School for the Physical Education. In the year 1963 we were incorporated into the University of Belgrade. From 1978 to 1988 we exist as The Faculty for the Physical Education; from 1988 to 2000 as the Faculty of the Physical Culture and in the year 2000 we changed the name into the present one - Faculty of Sports and Physical Education. Naturally, the name changes have been the consequence of the significant reforms of the course of study, with the aim of as appropriate education of the stuff as possible.

The Faculty's library provides the students with all the necessary literature for the exams, reading-room and great number of books and magazines (altogether 24462 publications) from the field of physical culture.
