Located in the Croatian city of Rijeka, the new campus overlooks the beautiful Kvarner Bay, and has newly built student accommodation, cafes and a restaurant on site. It lies next to the historic old district of Trsat, with the city centre and modern shopping facilities also easily accessible.

Students in the department are taught at the undergraduate, graduate (Masters) and doctoral level, using the European Bologna system. In the academic year 2020/2021, the new international Masters program “Biotechnology for the Life Sciences” will begin. An exciting research-focussed program, taught entirely in the English language, this will be aimed at ambitious graduates looking to develop a career in life science research. For students entering in the first year of the program, all tuition fees will be paid on their behalf, courtesy of the European Union’s Structural Funds.
