Recognition of foreign educational qualifications in Croatia is carried out for the purpose of continuation of education at Croatian higher education institutions (academic recognition) or for the purpose of employment in Croatia (professional recognition).

Recognition of secondary school qualifications

Prospective applicants to undergraduate study programmes in Croatia who hold foreign secondary school diploma from general, gymnasium and art secondary schools submit requests for recognition of their educational qualifications to the Education and Teacher Training Agency. Detailed instructions, request forms and list of supporting documents are available here (please scroll down for English version). 

Prospective applicants to undergraduate study programmes in Croatia who hold foreign secondary school diploma from vocational secondary schools submit requests for recognition of their educational qualifications to the Agency for Vocational Education and Training and Adult Education. More information on the recognition procedure is available here

Recognition of higher education qualifications 

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 for the purpose of continuation of education in Croatia, which is performed by Croatian higher education institutions. Please click here for further details. 

All higher education institutions that accept international students usually have an International Cooperation Office and prospective students should contact that office well before applying in order to obtain relevant information on what educational qualifications need to be recognised in order to apply for the study programme in question. 

After students have completed their degrees (or exchange programmes) in Croatia, the same process of recognition takes place in the students’ country of origin.
