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 is 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 be permitted for students working on their theses 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.
