The purpose of this study is to identify the levels of ICT Competencies of university students from two universities, one in Slovakia and the other in Serbia. The research type is quantitative and exploratory. The instrument consists of 14 items related to three types of competencies: Basic, Application and Ethical. The quantitative data analysis was performed with SPSS software using descriptive statistics and Mann- Whitney independent sample U test. The situation of education in Slovakia and Serbia is not so very different although each country has taken different paths in the field. The results referring to Slovakian and Serbian students’ perceptions of their competencies in ICT indicate that they perceive themselves as having high levels of competencies in ICT. These results suggest the need to develop strategies that promote the effective use of technology resources by both students and teachers.
