Language Requirements

The lectures at the University of Zadar are held in Croatian, except for the study programs of foreign languages where the lectures are held in relevant language. Also, the University of Zadar offers the possibility of teaching in English for the students who don’t speak Croatian (mainly through the consultation hours).

The University of Zadar requires that the student has very good language skills (in reading, writing and speaking) equivalent to level B2 on the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) scale. More information on the CEFR scale could be found here.  No particular concessions will be given to students whose level of English is lower than the expected levels mentioned below.

How to prove the language skills:

All students have to fill in English Language Proficiency form which can be found here

Please note that fluent language skills are vital for successful studies at the University of Zadar. If the language requirements are not met, the University of Zadar will not accept you and reserves the right to do so even after your arrival!

Upon arrival:

Upon arrival the incoming student has to pass the language proficiency test (Croatian, English or other) and if the student's language skills aren't equivalent to level B2 on the CEFR* scale the University will make the final decision if this student is accepted or not. The students who submit English Language Proficiency form are exempt from testing.
