Following global trends in higher education, the International Office was established with the aim of introducing the many advantages of studying in Croatia to future students. The staff at the International Office will be happy to help prospective students from the moment they start thinking about studying at Algebra. The International Office will serve them as the main point of information and support throughout the entire application and enrolment process. All students will be in contact with the International Office until the start of the academic year. After that, all further support will be taken over by the Student Office.
