Exchange of students and teachers at the universities of Central and South-Eastern Europe with scholarships that comply with the standard of living in the countries involved in the programme

The Central European Exchange Programme for University Studies (CEEPUS) supports the mobility of teachers and undergraduate, graduate, postgraduate and doctoral students. The core of the programme are CEEPUS networks (Partnerships of related higher education institutions), comprising at least 3 higher education institutions from at least three CEEPUS participating countries.

Students gaining mobility under CEEPUS are exempt from the payment of tuition fees at a foreign higher education institution.

The national CEEPUS office of the receiving country grants a scholarship and the receiving higher education institution provides for the realisation of the professional part of the programme. On average, more than 500 students and teachers from Croatia go to mobility through CEEPUS per year, while more than 450 scholarship holders come to Croatian higher education institutions.


Opportunities for students and teachers

Students: scholarships for regular semester activities are awarded for a minimum of 3 months and a maximum of 10 months.

Short term students: shorter stays are only permitted for students working on their thesis or dissertations (Master or PhD-students).

Short Term Excursions and Summer Schools which may be shorter than a month and may also be attended by undergraduates.

Teacher: all teachers applying for mobility are advised to apply only under this category regardless of the duration of mobility


Scholarship rates differ depending on the type of mobility and duration of mobility. Scholarship rates can be found at the official CEEPUS website.

Open call - incoming mobility at Croatian institutions in the winter term 2024/2025

Call for the freemover* mobility to Croatia in the winter term of 2024/2025 is currently OPEN, until 1st of August.

In CEEPUS a freemover mobility refers to any mobility outside of the CEEPUS network (partnership of similar institutions or departments in different CEEPUS countries). It’s a mobility from any higher education institution which is eligible for CEEPUS in your home country, to any institution which is eligible for CEEPUS in Croatia.

We invite all interested candidates to submit their applications for the mobility during the summer semester at higher education institutions in Croatia through CEEPUS system.

What is CEEPUS, who can apply for a grant and how does it function for the incomings in Croatia – find out here (the most of information available under Practical information for students/teachers).

During the application process you can also rely on the National CEEPUS Office in your Home country, the contacts are available at CEEPUS website.

If you are not sure why you should choose Croatia as your study destination in CEEPUS you can check our Study in Croatia website, where you can also browse study programs available at Croatian institutions.

Professor Lidija Kozačinski, Ph.D., Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, University of Zagreb about her CEEPUS experience

„In the end, as every year, we thank all the collaborators for their warm welcome that were selflessly sharing their practical knowledge with the students in the beautiful surroundings along the rivers Neretva and Buna, and the sea sights of Neum and Pelješac making our teaching special. We also thank the students, curious, cheerful, real little connoisseurs, wonderful companions, just as one would expect from future veterinarians.“
