The principal requirement for admission to a bachelor’s degree programme is a high school diploma at the appropriate level. This level is set by the institution. In some popular fields, the number of places is minimal and quotas are usually set. There are also study programmes – in the arts for example – for which institutions set their own extra requirements. For admission to a master’s degree programme, you must have a minimum of a bachelor’s degree or its equivalent.

When you enrol in a study programme, your host institution will contact you to start up the application procedure. If not, ask for help by contacting the international office (or if you are a researcher, the HR department) of your host institution.

If you are from the EU/EEA or Switzerland you are free to work without restrictions. As of 1 July 2018 Croats have the same rights as other EU citizens and no longer need a work permit. Are you from another country than the ones mentioned above? Then there are some restrictions if you want to take a job beside your studies. You need a permit and you can only work for a maximum of 16 hours a week or, instead, you can work full-time during the summer months of June, July and August. You are allowed to work and do an internship at the same time.
