Tuition fees
The range of tuition fees for international undergraduate students varies depending on the higher education institution and field of study. Tuition fees for undergraduate degree programmes in the humanities and social sciences can range from 6,000 Kuna (approximately 800 EUR) to 16,500 Kuna (approximately 2,200 EUR) per year, tuition fees for technical sciences are approximately 22,000 Kuna (approximately 3,000 EUR) per year and tuition fees for sciences and medical study are around 27,000 Kuna per year (approximately 3,600 EUR).

Tuition fees for graduate and postgraduate programmes should be obtained by request directly from higher education institutions since they vary significantly.

In order to study at Croatian higher education institutions, international students must have sufficient financial means for the duration of their stay in Croatia from personal sources or scholarships sources available in their countries or internationally.

Presently the majority of Croatian higher education institutions do not offer any scholarships or financial aid for international students. However, there are a number of scholarships available to international students through bilateral programmes administered by the Croatian Ministry of Science, Education and Sports, through university bilateral agreements, through programmes such as CEEPUS and Erasmus
