Classes will be held at the University of Split Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences and other parts of the University such as the School of Medicine. The program will be taught by the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences staff and collaborating teachers from other Croatian and international universities. The mentoring system will provide each student with a mentor-teacher who will advise the student regarding the study or specific academic interests.
