Early application is advisable, since enrollment is limited. You may apply as much as one year in advance of the time you plan to enroll.

If you are a high school student intending to enroll in the regular undergraduate program at the Seminary, you may submit your application at the end of your junior year.

Application files must be completed by September 15. Those wishing to have credit transferred from another post-secondary institution must have transcripts sent to ETF and apply by June 15.

Students who are not Croatian residents must apply at the nearest Croatian embassy for a student visa. The Evangelical Theological Seminary takes no responsibility for the visa, however we would like you to note that obtaining your visa may take up to two months.

  • Suspension of classroom-based instruction

    All schools of higher education in Croatia, including our own, received instructions from the Government to suspend our regular classes for two weeks. Our professional board has decided, due to a number of its students coming from distant regions and the possibility of a further extension of this period, that VETU will suspend regular classroom-based instruction for one month and that we will continue with our regular classroom instruction from April 20th. All of our courses will continue with online-based instruction according to our normal schedule - our lecturers will upload their materials on the course pages within learn.evtos.hr (Moodle), students are to be in contact with their lecturers and continue to do assignments as set by their lecturer. Each student has the user information and is enrolled within the system in the courses he / she is attending this semester. The lecturer communicates with students through the aforementioned pages, sends messages, uploads materials, records content, and in the event of problems with the system, will use e-mail to inform the support group.
