C/2. partial PhD studies
Applicants must be enrolled in a PhD programme at an accredited institution of higher education in his/her home country or in a foreign country (but not in Croatia).
Postgraduate studies scholarships may be extended exceptionally, only under special circumstances, on one occasion. These scholarships can only be used for conducting studies or research in Croatia, which means that scholarship holders must stay in Croatia during the whole period of their studies or research.
Scholarship terms for postgraduate studies and research
The applicant should meet the academic requirements of the Croatian University that he/she applies to. A scholarship will be approved only after the required institution accepts the candidate.
Scholarship holders can make use of the scholarship only during the period of the specific academic year for which the scholarship has been granted.
Within 30 days after the scholarship ends, each scholarship holder must submit to the Agency for Mobility and EU Programmes a detailed Final Report about the studies or research he/she has carried out, as well as a certificate by his/her supervisor about the research. If this is not the case, scholarship refund shall be claimed.
Prospective students who wish to apply for graduate or postgraduate study programmes and have a foreign higher education qualification or degree, will need to undergo the process of academic recognition. Academic recognition for the purpose of continuation of higher education on graduate or postgraduate study programmes in Croatia is performed by Offices for Academic Recognition of Foreign Higher Education Qualifications at Croatian higher education institutions. Please contact desired Universities for more information.
