Scents in the service of academic development of students

Academic socio-emotional and psychophysical development of students has always been the central focus of LINK edu Alliance. That is why we introduced high standards in our business operations, and because of them, we choose the best curricula and teachers, implement the best extracurricular programs, take care of the quality of the indoor environment, and encourage outdoor activities.

As part of the academic development of students, increasing the performance of students, as well as teachers, has always been an important topic for our educational institutions. LINK edu Alliance regularly conducts extensive secondary and primary research to find ways to improve the quality of educational processes and learning outcomes, reduce student stress and increase student concentration and motivation. A recent extensive secondary research of scientific and professional studies has led us to the conclusion that pleasant odor can have a significant effect on the performance of students and teachers.

Certain scents can increase students' concentration and attention

Based on scientific research, LINK edu Alliance has determined that certain scents can increase students' concentration, attention, and amount of memory, can have an impact on long-term memory, and lead to stress reduction.

Due to these significant results, LINK edu Alliance is considering the possibility of introducing scents into its schools, faculties, institutes and professional education services through several stages, taking care that the position of the dispenser (outside the classrooms), the choice of scents and the dosage of aromas has only positive effects, but also not to cause potential negative effects.

By selecting optimal aroma manufacturers, and searching for strictly controlled fragrance oils of the highest quality and fragrance notes that would be used in our facilities, our goal is to help improve the performance of students and teachers through this project, which would have a positive impact on the quality of education in general, as well as strengthen our already high standards when it comes to hygiene and modern space.

This is just one of many examples of how our educational institutions strive to provide the best conditions for learning and development. LINK edu Alliance is proud to contribute to this important cause and continues to look for new ways to improve the quality of education.

I am extremely pleased and proud to be the parent of a Savremena student. During my first encounter with the school management, when I asked about my child’s potential enrolment, I saw how much love, enthusiasm and professionalism you put in your work. I was impressed by your approach, ideas and methods. I couldn’t believe something like this existed in our country! It doesn’t take long to realise that this is a school you would recommend to everyone. Creativity, modern technology, top-quality education, and most of all, the humaneness that can be seen throughout the school, make it truly different and worthy of its name – Savremena Gimnazija. With such an approach, the success of this school and, consequently, our children’s success, is unavoidable. Congratulations! Jelena Đorđević, Andrija’s mum
Contemporary in any sense of the word, our school offers functional knowledge and quality preparation for tertiary education in Serbia and abroad. Implementing modern and creative teaching in the classroom, where the teachers’ pedagogy and students’ performance are aligned with the highest academic standards for the high-school finals, our school develops linguistic, mathematical, scientific, artistic, cultural, technical and ICT competence, which is a prerequisite for further education and professional development. Teaching is supported by the interactive whiteboards and educational software, whereas practice exercises research and critical thinking.
