The 11th edition of the Higher Education and Scholarships Fair took place in the National and University Library in Zagreb on Tuesday, with over 100 exhibitors from 18 countries.

The aim of the event, organised by the Institute for the Development of Education, is to inform secondary school pupils, university students and the wider public on educational opportunities and scholarships available in Croatia and abroad.

This year, the country-partner was Slovenia and its four universities presented their programmes.

Last year, as many as 3,600 foreign students attended university and college courses in Slovenia and 800 were Croatian nationals.

On Thursday, the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences of the University of Rijeka will host the fair. (Hina)
