About the Study

Upon finishing the Undergraduate Professional Study of Kinesiology students gain 180 ECTS credits. Professional Undergraduate Study is organised as it follows:

This level of study requires from students of all study groups to attend lessons in courses of the basic kinesiological sciences and interdisciplinary areas (compulsory courses), and particularly lessons in specialist courses (organised according to the choice of their study), elective sports and elective courses.

Starting the study for each academic year is a decision brought by the authorised bodies of the Faculty of Kinesiology University of Split according to established criteria (number of applicants applied for the admission procedure, results of the entrance exam, priorities emphasised from certain national sport federations and other).
