In 2018, the Department of International Relations and European Studies concluded an agreement with two universities in the European Union: one from Austria, the University of Technical Sciences in Burgenland, and one from Croatia, University Juraj Dobrila in Pula.
Upon graduating, all students who complete their studies at the Department are awarded with a joint degree from the three universities: International Burch University, University Juraj Dobrila in Pula and the University of Technical Sciences in Burgenland.
Throughout the three-year duration of the program, a total of four courses will be taught by lecturers from the two partner countries: two by instructors from University Juraj Dobrila in Pula and two by instructors from the University of Technical Sciences in Burgenland. This allows all students to benefit from the experience of being lectured by foreign lecturers, as well as our domestic ones.
On top of this, some of the best students have the opportunity to travel to one of the two universities through Erasmus+ exchanges, where all of their expenses (travel, cost of living, etc.) are covered. Such exchanges, which are available to up to five students per year, allow students to experience what studying in an EU country is like and benefit from a semester of new experiences and knowledge.
This mix of various experiences and expertises, both from the side of foreign lecturers visiting our students and our students visiting foreign universities, provides for a conducive and effective teaching process that allows students to master the relevant knowledge and become experts in their chosen field of study.
