University of Pula


Recommended Posts

The University of Pula accepts international students from its partner institutions to study for some time (1-2 semesters) as visiting students within the Erasmus program or under the terms of a bilateral agreement. The period of studies at the University of Pula is recognized by the students' home Institution as an integral part of their program based on ECTS.

Exchange students are offered accommodation at the University's halls of residence. Each student will also have a personal mentor - a local student who will familiarize the student with the new environment.

Students who wish to apply for an exchange program should first contact their home university exchange coordinator to check whether a bilateral agreement with the University of Pula has been concluded and if the proposed program of studies will be approved. Coordinator of home University should send an email to the University of Pula with the names of students nominated for the exchange program.

After nomination, students will receive a message with the application procedure and additional information.

According to the law regarding foreigners, foreign nationals intending to study in Croatia must regulate their temporary residence to study if their stay in Croatia is longer than 90 days. International students are not allowed to attend classes at the University of Pula until they have procured a residence permit.

Nationals of countries subject to the visa requirement also need to procure an entry visa for Croatia (Viza C). Information on countries subject to the visa requirement can be found on the Croatian Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs. The visa application (Viza C) must be submitted to the diplomatic mission or consulate of the Republic of Croatia in the foreign national's home country. The visa application can be submitted either in person or via email. A list of missions and consulates is available on web site of the Croatian Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs.

International students can submit residence permit application in one of two ways: to the diplomatic mission or consulate of the Republic of Croatia in their home country or the Central Police Station in Pula (Address: Trg Republike 1, Pula 52100) immediately upon their arrival in Croatia if they submit the proof of taking part in an exchange program approved by the Ministry of Science, Education and Sports in Croatia (Erasmus, Erasmus Mundus, CEEPUS, bilateral exchange, etc.) –

Selecting a particular number of study courses outside the department where they study will allow students to acquire interdisciplinary knowledge necessary for overcoming future challenges! Knowledge is a strategic product, and anyone who possesses it is given a chance to develop his/her potentials in the world market! New generations grow up and get matured, knowing that the best support in life should be found in the results of their work. Working and studying, our students gain experiences and competencies that will be increasingly recognized in the labor market. The willingness to get to know other countries, cultures, customs or languages is what potential employers require as an essential element in your CVs. Staying abroad for some time makes you more confident and open-minded in the sea of future professional challenges. It helps you get orientated better and faster.

Pula is located south of the Istrian Peninsula, in a spacious bay surrounded by seven hills. Due to its rich cultural-and-historical heritage, which is 3000 years old, beautiful coastline, and friendly residents, Pula is the ripest and the most beautiful grape in the bunch of Istrian places. The enchanting monuments such as the Amphitheatre, the Temple of Augustus, the Golden Gate, the Roman Theatre, the Twin Gate as well as the Brijuni National Park and the Rt Kamenjak Botanical Reserve ornamented with beautiful beaches can offer any student a chance to study in favorable conditions and to experience some magical moments to remember forever.

You will undoubtedly be motivated to come to this city in the south of Istria by the well-indented 190-km-long coast, clear sea, beaches that are pretty much-taken care of, or the ones hidden by the untouched vegetation for those who love privacy. Today Pula is an economic, cultural, traffic, medical, educational, trade, and partially administrative center of the entire Istrian County.

From a competitive point of view, quality is the most important expectation we may have from the system of higher education.

Implementing the Bologna process, adjusting our teaching and non-teaching methods to the European standards, and bringing study programs into a line with the economic needs are the necessary foundations of strengthening the quality at the Juraj Dobrila University. We have introduced the following changes in the structure:

  • Three study cycles enabling the establishment of a national qualification framework following the European one.
  • Introduction of the ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) grading scheme.
  • Building the quality assurance system.
  • We have introduced the accreditation procedure and system according to which foreign diplomas are to be considered valid.
  • Introducing doctoral studies.

Besides, the University pays so much attention to technological and IT support, which includes:

  • Non-stop Internet access - study courses presented directly on the network.
  • Lectures held with the aid of laptops, projectors, and the so-called smart boards.
  • E-consultations.
  • Teleconference hall enabling direct contact with students all over the world.
  • Electronic exam applications and cancellations.
