The Faculty of Teacher Education is the leading institution for educating primary school and preschool teachers in the Republic of Croatia. The Faculty operates at three locations, with the main branch in Zagreb and local branches in Petrinja and Čakovec, totalling approximately 3,000 students.

The Faculty of Teacher Education offers undergraduate, graduate, integrated (undergraduate and graduate) university study programmes, as well as programmes of postgraduate specialization and doctoral programmes in the area of educational sciences. In addition to that, the Faculty also carries out programmes for continuing professional development for teachers working in primary schools.



Students from abroad who apply for a study mobility to our Faculty through the Erasmus+ or another exchange programme will have a wide variety of courses offered in English and a few in German to choose from. Below you can find an updated list of courses that we offer to incoming students, as well as the course syllabi.

Please note that for the next two years our Faculty building in Zagreb is undergoing major reconstruction due to which classes will be held at different locations in Zagreb. 

Incoming students will receive relevant information during the first week of the semester.
