The lectures were held by Adéla Koláčková and Jitka Kovařčíková, incoming students from the University of Mendel in Brno, Nikolett Novak-Arnold, an apprentice at the Office for International Relations, and Vinka Skorić, a member of the students' association the ESN Zadar, who represented the Masaryk University where she had spent a semester.

The University's students attended the lectures in great number, and listened to their colleagues' experiences with interest, asking numerous questions. Every year, there is an increase in applications for the Erasmus + programme, and in the current year alone there are more than 50 students participating in the Erasmus+ mobility programme. This year's application for the Erasmus + mobility programme, for the purposes of a study visit, is open until  25 March 2015.

After the lectures, useful workshops entitled "How to apply for Erasmus" were held in organisation of the students' association ESN Zadar.
