OVERVIEW
Osijek is the largest city in eastern Croatia and the centre of Slavonia - a region of Eastern Croatia. To give you a sense of where it is on a larger scale, it is smack in the middle of an imaginary square made of European capitals: Belgrade (Serbia) – Sarajevo (Bosnia and Herzegovina) – Zagreb (Croatia) - Budapest (Hungary). So an exchange in Osijek also gives you a unique opportunity to visit a lot of nearby European capitals.

UNIVERSITY AND HOSPITALS

Clinical Hospital Centre Osijek is the largest hospital in this region and it was founded in the 18th century. The School of Medicine in Osijek was established in 1998 but it existed since 1979 as a dislocated Faculty dependent on the School of Medicine in Zagreb. Hospital and Faculty complex are within walking distance from the student dormitory.


BOARDING

You will be provided with 3 meals/day, 7 days a week at the hospital restaurant.

LODGING
Students will be accomodated in Osijek's newest student dormitory in a twin bedroom. There are coin-operated washing machines, a shared kitchen with a fridge (one per floor) as well as free WiFi. It is conveniently located as the hospital, city center and nightlife destinations are all within walking distance. A 30 euro deposit is required to cover any possible damage to the room. It is returned to the student after check-out.
TRANSPORTATION

When searching for plane tickets you can choose Zagreb, Belgrade or Budapest airport and then take a bus or train to Osijek. Osijek also has an airport, but it's mostly local flights. If you prefer flying to Osijek, you will almost certainly have to catch a connecting flight in Zagreb. A bus trip from Zagreb or Belgrade to Osijek takes 3-4 hours.
Here you can see the official website of Zagreb bus station http://www.akz.hr/en, and for shuffle transport from airport http://www.plesoprijevoz.hr/en/page/timetable

We also offer transportations from the bus station or airport to your accomModation.

You won't have to spend much on transportation while you are here – as mentioned before, most of the places you need are within walking distance, and there are free buses to shopping malls. Ticket price for city buses and trams is 1.3€. Taxis are 2.5€ for initial 5km.

SOCIAL PROGRAM

We are making sure you never feel bored or alone - each summer, the local officers plan a full schedule of fun activities and trips. Once we have all the information, an estimated price of the social programme is given. Upon payment, money is then taken out of your „account“ INDIVIDUALLY. This is important – you can choose not to attend a certain trip or activity and you won't pay for any of it. At the end of the month, a list is made for each individual student showing who attended what and the remaining money is returned. 
Some of the activities we do every season are: bike trip to Kopacki rit, visits to Baranja and tasting it's amazing cuisine, visits to Djakovo, Vukovar, doing kayaking and the adrenaline park at Zlatna Greda.
