More Croatians Studying at European Universities

CroatiaMore and more Croatian students are choosing to study abroad, according to the latest figures from the European Commission…

Croatia was ranked in 3rd place in the EU for growth in the number of students studying one of the most popular programmes abroad – Erasmus. The mobility of Croatian students last year grew 27% from the previous academic year, going from 882 to 1,124 students. Only Malta (40%) and Cyprus (36%) had larger growth. Statistics for this year show that the numbers have increased to more than 1,300.

The most popular country to study abroad in is Spain, followed by Germany and France. Croatia is also starting to an attractive destination for foreign students, with the most foreign students doing the Erasmus programme in Croatia coming from Poland, Slovenia and Spain.

“Those are excellent numbers considering that Croatia only just joined the Erasmus programme, and that it is competing with some quality overseas universities,” Tina Šarić from the EU’s mobility and programme agency told daily Slobodna Dalmacija.
