Croatia 

Croatia: your live and learn destination

Croatia is one of the sunniest spots in Europe and one of the safest countries in the world!

Welcome to Croatia, one of the European richest countries in terms of biodiversity that continues to attract tourists, digital nomads and international students due to its spectacular nature, relaxed lifestyle and career opportunities in the digital industries.

A member state of the European Union, Croatia is considered to be one of the safest countries in the world according to the Global Peace Index 2021 produced by the Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP). The multi-lingual and hospitable environment makes everyday life and communication easy and makes adjusting to new surroundings that much simpler. A recent survey by Landgeist places Croatia as the second safest country in Europe (after the neighbouring Slovenia) in terms of how safe individuals feel walking alone on the streets at night.

Best known for its beautiful Adriatic Sea coastline, sunny islands and world-renowned athletes, Croatia is a land of innovators like Nikola Tesla, Ruđer Bošković and home to inventions that transformed human existence, many of which are used in everyday life, such as: alternating current, electrical transformers, power lines, parachute, ball-point pen (Penkala pen) as well as the necktie. Croatian landscape is recognized by Hollywood as well: Game of Thrones, Star Wars, Mama Mia, Captain America and many other cinematic marvels were shot in Croatia.

As a study destination, Croatia follows the Bologna Process and offer students undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate opportunities across the country. The long educational tradition derives from public universities offering university studies focusing on academia and science, while the private university sector as Algebra mostly offers professional studies which equip students with applicable knowledge and skills sought after the relevant industry labour market.

Zagreb 

Zagreb, one of the oldest European cities, is not only the administrative but also economic, diplomatic and cultural capital of Croatia, with a population of almost one million.

The capital accounts for one fourth of Croatia’s entire population while maintaining a “big small” city vibe that offers the cosiness of smaller towns with all the advantages of other famous European capitals. With its excellent public transport network, exploring Zagreb is an easy task.

The city of science and culture is the home to more than fifty museums and galleries as well as private art collections and about twenty theatres and music venues. Zagreb is a vibrant multi-cultural city no matter the season: in the summer, you can enjoy outdoor activities and events as picnics, sports, rooftop parties, open-air cinemas and street festivals while winter brings a genuine Christmas atmosphere with its traditional Zagreb Advent Christmas market offering plenty of fun, traditional Croatian cuisine, unique events and artistic manifestations.

Today, Zagreb is a university city with forty higher education institutions and a student population which accounts for 1/10 of the city’s population. History of education in Zagreb dates back to the middle of 14th century with its first primary school, leading to the 16th century when the first secondary school and the first university were established.

The quality of higher education, a never-ending bucket list of things to do and affordability make Zagreb a dream student destination. Oh, did we mention that the closest beaches are a two-hour drive from Zagreb?
