Scholarships to Study Abroad in Croatia

If you are looking for scholarships to study in Croatia, in this article you will find out everything you need. There are various scholarships to study abroad in Croatia but the most famous is definitely the Erasmus + program. More information below!

Erasmus+ and Erasmus Mundus

The most popular student exchange program in the European Union. I have been 2 times on the Erasmus internship. First time in Germany and the second time in the Netherlands (my first article the new experience and benefits of this program: “My first working day in the Netherlands as an architect“).

With the Erasmus + program, you receive a scholarship every month. The amount of the scholarship depends on whether you are going to study or do an internship. If you go to study then it is usually between 400-500 euros per month while for an internship it is about 100 euros more. Your home university determines the exact amount according to the guidelines of the European Commission. As an Erasmus + student, you are exempt from paying tuition at the host university.

The conditions for student exchange are prescribed in bilateral agreements between universities. This means that if you want to apply for Erasmus + to study in Croatia, you will be a guest student at a partner university with which your home university has signed an Erasmus + contract. If you go to an internship, the procedure is a little easier, but you have to find an employer in the country where you want to work. If you need advice or help, feel free to email me.

Erasmus + provides scholarships for periods of study and internship abroad for three to twelve months (study only) or for two to twelve months (internship only). At each stage of your studies, you have the opportunity for a total of twelve months of Erasmus + funding.

CEEPUS Scholarships

CEEPUS is a Central European exchange program for university studies. The program began on December 1, 1994, while Croatia signed the CEEPUS Agreement in 1995. In addition to Croatia, the following countries traditionally participate in the program: Albania, Austria, Bulgaria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Macedonia, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia and Serbia.

Mobility categories – The program consists of a total of four categories, depending on the category of scholarship recipients and the purpose of mobility. The first is students who want to achieve semester mobility (duration of this type of mobility at least three months). The second is short-term students who want to achieve mobility for the purpose of research for the final work/dissertation (the minimum duration of this type of mobility is one month). The third is the teacher, where the teaching staff applies for the purpose of holding classes / mentoring work in the host institution and developing inter-university cooperation. And the last is a short-term excursion for participants of short group mobility (for example, summer schools).

Each country determines the amounts of scholarships for each category. Also, each country determines rights such as free accommodation, subsidized meals, health insurance, etc. Scholarships depend on the standard of living in each country and must be sufficient for mobility needs.

University bilateral agreements

Last on the list “Scholarships to Study Abroad in Croatia”. Most Croatian higher education institutions have a significant number of bilateral agreements (30 to 90 per higher education institution) with foreign higher education institutions. Prospective students should visit the web sites of their home universities and check if they have bilateral cooperation agreements with any of Croatian higher education institutions. If such cooperation exists, their home university will publish a competition announcement for available study programs at Croatian higher education institutions.
