Students participating in the Erasmus+ academic mobility programme at another faculty of the University of Zagreb can enrol in the Short Semester Course of the Croatian Language and Culture at a special price. Croaticum students not participating in academic mobility programmes may, if they fulfil the necessary requirements, apply for a scholarship awarded by the Central State Office for Croats Abroad.

CEEPUS offers two types of academic mobility: network mobility and freemover mobility, lasting from one month to one semester.

If your faculty is not part of these CEEPUS networks, you can apply for freemover mobility.
