International exchange

With our openness and contacts with international institutions, we create conditions for participation in bilateral and multilateral research programmes, exchange programmes for students, young scientists and university professors, and scholarships for professional development.

Student mobility at FER is carried out through several programmes. Further information on how to apply at FER is provided in the Study Programmes section.

At the level of the University of Zagreb, international student exchange falls under the  International Relations Office.
