University of Rijeka Students
The aim of all study programmes at the University of Rijeka is to provide students with sufficient theoretical and practical knowledge so they can successfully proceed to become a part of either the corporate or academic world upon completing any given study programme.
One becomes a student at the University of Rijeka by enrolling in any given Faculty or University Department.
A student can enrol either as a full-time or part-time student.
Full-time students are those who study according to a programme based on a full-time schedule and class attendance is mandatory as are all class activities. The tuition for a full-time study programme is partly or completely subsidized by the state budget, dependent on the student’s entry exam score and their subsequent grades and achievements throughout the semesters of the study programme.
Part-time students are those attending the academic programme part-time (holding down either a job or other activity that demands a specific programme). Part-time students can be freed from certain class obligations, pursuant to the study programme. The tuition for the part-time study programme is met completely by the students themselves. The conditions of payment are regulated by the University of Rijeka Senate.
Student status is proved by the Student Index. Alongside the Index, student status can also be proved by the X-card  i.e. the SmartX  card.
