The API study abroad program at Libertas International University is unlike any other in Croatia. The university, nestled on the coast of the Adriatic Sea, provides an idyllic setting for students to delve into Croatia's recent economic and political developments (all while enjoying a uniquely rich culture that most tend to overlook!).
The program courses are taught in English and students participate in smaller group classes with other international students. This intimate setting allows for a deeper understanding of international relations and diplomacy, ultimately preparing students for careers in a global environments. The majority of courses are taught in English in an intimate setting with an average of less than 10 students per course. The student body consists of a diverse group of international and Croatian students. API students may also elect to take an introductory Croatian language course during their time abroad.
