Incoming students

The University of Zagreb’s Faculty of Political Science takes part in several exchange programmes like Erasmus+, CEEPUS and Erasmus Mundus. If you are interested in participating in student exchange at the Faculty of Political Science, you should start by contacting the International Office at your home university. You can apply to the Faculty of Political Science as an exchange student if there is a valid student exchange agreement between your home university and the University of Zagreb, and if you have been nominated by your home university.

We currently have around 50 Erasmus partner universities, and we actively participate in Europe from the Visegrad Perspective CEEPUS network. A list of our partner institutions can be found here. The list does not include numerous bilateral agreements signed at the university level.
