Application deadlines

IMPORTANT NOTICE

The application deadlines are:

  • 10 May for the first semester (October - February);
  • 10 November for the second semester (February - June)

Please note that we do not accept applications for the whole academic year. However, it is possible to apply for the prolongation of mobility during the first semester.

Late applications will not be considered.

Nominations

Home institutions should nominate exchange students by sending e-mail to incoming@unizg.hr and fmatovic@alu.hr. The nomination e-mail should contain the following information:

  • student's full name;
  • name of the home institution;
  • student's subject area;
  • student’s e-mail address

After we receive the nomination e-mail, central international cooperation office of the University will send detailed information on how to apply to nominated students. Please send the nominations at least 10 days prior to the application deadline.

The application procedure and the related documents are also explained here.

Learning Agreement

Exchange candidates can apply for exchange in only one of the following study areas:

PAINTING
SCULPTURE
GRAPHIC ARTS
APPLIED GRAPHIC ARTS
ANIMATED FILM
NEW MEDIA
ART CONSERVATION AND RESTORATION

It is not possible to change the selected study area after your application has been submitted or the selection process has been finalized.

Portfolio

In addition to the application documents, exchange candidates should send their art portfolio as a single PDF document to fmatovic@alu.hr. If the file is too big in size to send by e-mail, candidates should send it via service such as WeTransfer or similar. The art portfolio should represent your best and recent works in the study area you are applying for.

Selection process

There is no automatic acceptance of nominated students.

The number of places for student exchange within our studios is limited and, unfortunately, we were not in a position to accept all of the applications. The selection is primarily based on portfolio evaluation. The selection results will be sent to candidates by email within 5 to 6 weeks of the application deadline.
