Foreign students

Libertas International University in Dubrovnik offers a unique educational environment for students of the undergraduate study programme of International Relations (Diplomacy) and graduate study programme of International Relations and Diplomacy. Although the curriculum is the same in Zagreb and in Dubrovnik, studying in Dubrovnik provides a special experience to students, because of the city’s central, historic and several-century-long role in diplomacy and trade. Located in the beautiful, historical Dominican monastery, the teaching and learning facilities in Dubrovnik offer international atmosphere to its students and faculty who come from different countries around the world. Students from around 30 different countries have been enrolled in one of our programmes. In addition, they get to live and experience everything that a beautiful city of Dubrovnik and the Mediterranean coast have to offer.
