Application for the international student exchange

Application for the international student exchange

Students interested in spending the spring semester abroad must apply before September 30.

International Office can receive applications after these deadlines but students applying on time, they will have a better chance to enroll in the university of their preference.

  1. Students enrolled at ZSEM. (Those who have graduated are not eligible).
  2. Students must have successfully obtained a minimum of 30 ECTS when applying and a minimum of 60 ECTS at the time of their departure. (Attention: Some of our partner universities ask for a minimum of 120 ECTS before the student departure, in those cases we follow the same criteria). 
  3. Students having a minimum grade point average of 3.5/5
  4. Candidates should have enough knowledge of the language of instruction at the chosen host university. English is usually the language of instruction but there are some exceptions.

How can I apply?

  • Search this website for opportunities to study abroad for an academic semester or a year. The list of the universities that you can select is in the section called “International Partners”. There you have the link of each one of them. You can navigate to get more information about each university.
  • Fill out the following application form: Application form. Bring it to the International Office together with a recent photograph, CV and transcript of records. (Transcript of records is delivered in the student service office upon request and presentation of the INDEKS).
  • Students will be notified about the results of the contest and will know the name of the university where they can go for the exchange. The results are made public in February and in October each year.   
  • The International Office can provide a deeper orientation advice about the different opportunities, but it is important that before it students do their own research.

 

Do I have to pay extra fees for a student exchange?

Students pay their regular tuition fee at Zagreb School of Economics and Management. They don´t pay the tuition fee at the host university abroad.

Students are responsible for paying accommodation, transportation, meal expenses, books, health insurance and any other personal expenses.

 

After Application - how to select the courses?

After Application

Students search the web pages of the partner universities for the courses that they offer. If they are not available online, they ask the person in charge in the international office of the host university. It is important to ask about the language of instruction, since not all courses are always offered in the English language.

Note that some courses are offered only during the fall, others only during the summer and other ones in both semesters. 

All courses that students have received a passing grade for will be recognized by ZSEM. Some of them are recognized as core courses and others as elective ones. Only those ones which are 70% similar to the ones which are compulsory at ZSEM, can be recognized as core courses. The rest are recognized as electives.

Students in the undergraduate program do the selection of courses together with the coordinator of the respective year and fill the so-called
