Please note:

  • 1st, 3rd, and 5th semesters are being thought in the winter period (October to February) and 2nd, 4th and 6th semesters are being thought in the summer period (March to July)
  • for the study programs conducted in the Croatian language, lectures are mostly held in Croatian; only courses having English level L3 have lectures in English

English level of the course (explanation):

  • L0 - The lecturer is not able to offer courses in English at this time. Courses assigned with English level L0 are not available for incoming students
  • L1 - All teaching activities will be held in Croatian. However, foreign students in mixed groups will have the opportunity to attend additional office hours with the lecturer and teaching assistants in English to help master the course materials. Additionally, the lecturer will refer foreign students to the corresponding literature in English, as well as give them the possibility of taking the associated exams in English.
  • L2 - In agreement with the students enrolled in the course, the lecturer will provide as many teaching elements in English as possible, or in both English and Croatian for mixed groups (i.e., bilingual teaching materials and bilingual exams). Level 2 also includes additional individual consultations with foreign students (as in Level 1) for the teaching elements which will be held in Croatian.
  • L3 - All teaching activities in the course will be held in English. This level includes courses with multiple groups (i.e., all teaching will be held strictly in Croatian for Croatian groups, and strictly in English for English groups).

 

Supporting documentation

The decision about the possibility to enrol in a specific study program depends on the enrolled study program at the home institution and passed courses. In order to help us determine which study program and courses a candidate can enrol at FER, one should provide (if possible) as follows:                   

  • Transcript of grades - all years of study at home university with visible courses that have been passed, grades obtained and credits,
  • Certificate of Enrolment – a document stating the student is enrolled at the home university in the academic year 2021/22,
  • Official documentation from which we can see the content of passed courses (if you are unable to send mentioned contents of courses, you can send us a link to the official website which contains requested information about passed courses),
  • Copy of passport (first page with the photo and personal data),
  • Proof of English proficiency – intermediate level / B2 level (all kinds of certificates, from different language schools, are accepted).

The documentation mentioned above is important to determine which passed courses can be recognized for courses offered within our study programs and accordingly which courses student will need to enrol at FER in order to continue his/hers studies at FER.
