International Cooperation and Mobility
Mobility within the networks is a priority.
Within the CEEPUS programme, scholarships are available for two categories of students:
Duration of winter/summer semestre at the Faculty of Transport and Traffic Sciences (FPZ) is at least 4 months. Mobility for teaching and attending lectures can be carried out only during the lecture period at FPZ.
Freemover mobility: Faculty is accepting freemover mobility in the summer semester. In some cases, freemover mobility can be accepted in the winter semester.
Step 1: ENQUIRE ABOUT THE MOBILITY OPTION AT THE HOME INSTITUTION
All students should first contact the CEEPUS coordinator at their home institution to enquire about the number of available scholarships, available destinations and the selection procedure. When the respective CEEPUS coordinator has approved your mobility, you should apply for the mobility.
Freemovers: Student should check the possibility of applying as a freemover in Croatia (contact NCO Croatia via e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org).
Step 2: APPLICATION FOR MOBILITY TO FPZ (host institution)
The student who plans to come to FPZ should study the FPZ International Cooperation and Mobility web site where she/he will find all relevant information concerning the incoming mobility.
The student should decide which courses it wish to enrol at the FPZ or who is going to be their thesis mentor at FPZ and start filling out the Learning Agreement. Courses can be selected from the list of courses offered to CEEPUS and Erasmus students at FPZ within undergraduate and/or graduate study programme. Student can pick undergraduate and graduate courses independently of the level of study she/he applies for (if the home institution has no restrictions on that matter). Postgraduate student can select courses from list of courses offered within specialist study programme (see: tab hrv. Specijalistički studij) or doctoral study programme (see: tab hrv. Doktorski studij).
Network mobility: You should contact the CEEPUS coordinator at home institution and ensure that you will be nominated for the mobility.
Freemover: The CEEPUS coordinator of the home institution should approve your freemover mobility.
Student should then send the following documents to CEEPUS coordinator via e-mail to email@example.com (before submitting mobility application via https://www.ceepus.info):
Note: International students, to be able to successfully complete courses at our faculty, are required to have an advanced level of language proficiency – a minimum level of B2, according to CEFR. FPZ does not require official language certificate. We trust our partners to send us students who fulfil the aforementioned criteria. If the students do not meet the language requirement FPZ reserves the right to withdraw them from the courses and program.
The CEEPUS coordinator at FPZ will inform the student and the CEEPUS coordinator at the home institution whether the submitted application was accepted (freemovers will receive Letter of Acceptance) or refused. The student should then initiate the online application procedure via CEEPUS platform (https://www.ceepus.info/).
Step 3: APPLICATION SUBMISSION ONLINE VIA CEEPUS WEBSITE BY STUDENT
