International Students


Entry Requirements

We are happy to consider overseas applications on a case by case basis. As a general guide:


Svjedodžba o Maturi, A levels or the International Baccalaureate are accepted for Year 1 entry onto our undergraduate programmes. Depending on the chosen course, Croatian students generally need to achieve a score of 3.8 in the Svjedodžba o Maturi. Students with a High National Diploma (HND) or Higher Diploma can be considered for advanced entry onto a relevant undergraduate programme.


A Bachelor's degree (Baccalaureus/Baccalaurea) is required for entry onto a postgraduate programme. We would consider a score in the range of 4-3, depending on the chosen course.

For entry onto our MBA International, students will also need at least 3 years relevant work experience after graduation in a managerial or supervisory capacity. Work experience is also required for several other postgraduate courses and many courses will require you to have studied relevant subjects. Please visit Courses and go to the specific page for the course you are interested in for more details.


Students holding a good Master's Degree will be considered for PhD study upon submission of a research proposal. Please visit our Graduate School pages for information on specific areas of research.

English Language requirements:

We accept IELTS, TOEFL, IGCSE  and several other certificates. The required score will depend on your level of entry and your chosen course. Please visit English language requirements for more details. We offer Pre-Sessional English language programmes for applicants who do not yet meet the required English level for entry onto our degree courses.


Our International Officers are specialists in helping students from your region to apply and can answer any questions you might have.
