EUROSTUDENT is a survey simultaneously carried out in 25 European countries for the purpose of gathering comparable data about the social dimension of higher education in Europe. With 4664 respondents in Croatia, EUROSTUDENT is also one of the largest student surveys conducted in Croatia. The national EUROSTUDENT report provides answers to the following questions:
- What is the overall cost of studying in Croatia, from tuition fees and study costs to housing and food expenses? Which student groups have highest and lowest levels of expenses?
- To what extent do Croatian students depend on family, scholarships or paid work for financing their studies?
- What are the socio-economic differences between students attending university studies and those attending professional studies?
- What proportion of Croatian students have physical and mental disabilities and how satisfied are they with their study experience inCroatia?
- How many Croatian students have studied abroad and how many are even interested in academic mobility, and what is the biggest obstacle to studying abroad?
The coordinators of the national EUROSTUDENT survey for Croatia are the Ministry of Science, Education and Sport and the Institute for the Development of Education.
