Learning basic facts about Croatia’s geography and culture will also help you in getting to know the country and will better prepare you for living in Croatia.
Whether you are only exploring study opportunities in Croatia or have already been accepted to a degree or exchange programme at a Croatian higher education institution, the following web pages will provide you with a general outline and some practical information about what you need to do before and after your arrival.
However, these web pages provide only a brief description and you should contact the relevant institutions and use the resources listed on these pages in order to obtain more detailed information. This is particularly important in the sections “Student residence permit” and “Health care”, since the requirements and ways to proceed in these issues will depend on your nationality. It is therefore essential that you check with the authorities in Croatia or your home country which procedures and rules apply to you.
In addition to these sources, we advise you to consult:
- The higher education institution you will be studying at, because most higher education institutions provide “welcome guides” for international students
- The tourist information web site of the city you will be living in (for information concerning public transport, medical services, social events and so on).
Finally, learning basic facts about Croatia’s geography and culture will also help you in getting to know the country and will better prepare you for living in Croatia.
