The Graduate Professional Study in Information Security and Digital Forensics is first of hopefully many study programs available in English language as part of the internationalization policy of Zagreb University of Applied Sciences for the period between 2014 and 2025.
The increase in mobility can only be reached if Croatian higher education institutions increase their offer of courses, modules and entire study programs in English or other languages. Graduate Specialist Study Program Information Security and Digital Forensics was chosen as the most unique program with no similar programs found in the Republic of Croatia or the nearby region.
WHY CHOOSE SPECIALIST Graduate Study Programme Information Security and Digital Forensics?
With the number of cyberattacks constantly on the rise, the demand for experts in this area has been rapidly increasing. It is estimated that by 2021 there will be a need for 3.5 million experts in cyber security! With an unemployment rate close to zero, it is an area worth considering for your future career.

The right to apply is acquired through the classification procedure. The Commission for the Implementation of the Classification Procedure considers all of the applications separately, and decides who fulfils the conditions for applying for the classification procedure. To enrol, the applicants are required to hold a bachelor’s degree (180ECTS) in computer science, or have equivalent work experience if coming from a different background. Familiarity with the basics of programming and basics of computer networks is a must. Applicants from other areas would prove their knowledge with work experience in the field of information or computer security, application development, systems engineering or similar. Depending on the courses completed in their previous study, as well as the courses that the applicant wants to enrol in the Graduate Professional Study in Information Security and Digital Forensics, the Commission for the Implementation of the Classification Procedure may determine the obligation to enrol and take differentiated courses in Professional study of computer science (up to 20 ECTS credits).
