This year, study programmes offered by FER were once again at the top of the list of the most popular programmes among high school graduates. So far, almost 2,300 candidates have applied for them, of which more than 1,100 high school graduates have ticked FER as their first choice.
With its undergraduate, graduate, and postgraduate study programmes, FER traditionally attracts the best students from Croatia. Every year we enrol 650 first-year students, and of the top one thousand students in Matura exams in Mathematics and/or Physics, almost half enrol at FER.
In order to successfully respond to clear market demand, but also to contribute to the improvement of the quality and relevance of higher education in the field of STEM, starting this fall FER is also conducting its undergraduate and graduate programmes in English.
Therefore, we are particularly pleased with the fact that we are already experiencing good interest from Croatian high school graduates for these programmes, as according to the data from the Agency for Science and Higher Education (ASHE), 99 candidates are interested in enrolling in our undergraduate programme in English.
The topic was also picked up by some media, such as Jutarnji list and RTL.
