Recognition of prior educational qualifications for the purpose of continuation of education at Croatian higher education institutions (academic recognition) is an integral part of the enrollment procedure. Applicants to bachelor (undergraduate) study programmes who hold a foreign secondary school qualification submit a request for recognition of their educational qualification along with the enrollment application to the Agency for Science and Higher Education. Detailed instructions, request forms and a list of supporting documents are available on the website: https://www.studij.hr/recognition.
Prospective students who wish to apply for graduate or postgraduate study programmes and who hold a foreign higher education qualification or degree need to undergo the process of academic recognition for the purpose of continuation of education in Croatia, which is performed by either the Agency for Science and Higher Education (as described above) or by Croatian higher education institutions. Prospective students should contact their desired higher education institution for procedure details.
