The article presents the results of research of the study success at the University of Montenegro (UoM). The theoretical framework of the study points to the complexity and multidimensionality of the problem studied. The aim of the research was to identify the success of studying at UoM. Some of the variables were observed statistically, with the evidence based on empirical data. We have followed the relationship between the completed secondary school, regional characteristics and gender dimensions at the completion of bachelor studies in the foreseen time period, in the fields of study: natural and technical, social-humanistic and artistic (total of 19 faculties, N = 4 517). The results of research reject the hypothesis about the outstanding success of the study, i.e., the overproduction of diplomas, because 27,5 % of students graduated in natural and technical sciences, and 32 % in the field of social and humanistic sciences up-to-date. Higher success is noted only in the art disciplines (74,6 %). The results and their interpretation point to the need for introducing a qualification exam during enrolment, reducing the number of the enrolled at individual faculties, but also continually improving and innovating teaching and learning at the university. The results suggest the necessity of innovations in order to improve study success. Starting with students' enrolment university need to develop innovative approaches in the area of teaching and learning, but also monitoring and evaluation.
