Employers employing university bachelors of kinesiology are sports clubs, associations, federations, different sport institutions, recreation associations, kinesitherapeutic and rehabilitation institutions, societies and organisations etc.

Possibility of continuing the study at a higher level

Upon completing this study students may continue their education at the Faculty of Kinesiology in Split, at the Graduate University Study that is at one of four Specialist Professional Graduate Studies. At the eight level of the Croatian Qualifications Framework they may continue their study at the Postgraduate Doctoral Study of Kinesiology.

Study/studies of lower level of proponents or other institutions from the Republic of Croatia which precede to the enrolment of the suggested study

Undergraduate University Study programme of Kinesiology may be enrolled upon completing secondary school.

Studying conditions

Undergraduate Study of Kinesiology is implemented through the course of three study years. Each study year consists of two semesters that is four fourths. In each semester a student must be awarded with at least 30 ECTS credits that is 60 ECTS credits for an academic year. The study is completed when a students is awarded with the total of 180 ECTS credits and upon a defence of Final Paper.

During the first and second year students attend only complementary courses. When starting the third year students choose one elective line of study. Offered lines of study are those of certain sports, recreation and fitness, physical conditioning of athletes, personal trainer and kinesitherapy. Upon completion of the study, students acquire academic title University Bachelor of Kinesiology (univ. bacc. cin.).

Teaching at the study programme is basically implemented in the form of lectures (a group of 150 students maximum), seminars (a group of 36 students maximum), kinesiological exercises (a group of 18 students maximum), laboratory exercises ( a group of 12 students maximum) for courses in the field of biomedical sciences, field exercises (a group of 12 students maximum) for courses in some sports (Skiing, Water sports) and courses of Recreation as well as didactical exercises (a group of 10 students maximum) for courses Kinesiological Didactics 1 and 2, and Fundamentals of Kinesiological Didactics.

As a precondition for Kinesiological Physiology 2 students are required to pass the course Anatomy and attend the course Kinesiological Physiology 1. As a precondition for the course Kinesitherapy students are required to pass the course Anatomy. As a precondition for the course Sports Medicine students are required to pass the course Kinesiological Physiology 2.

System of counselling and guidance during the study

At each beginning of academic year two representatives of students are selected. The Faculty Council appoints a Head of study year who comes from the line of teachers and associates employed at the Faculty. Furthermore, students are organised and there is Student Council of the Faculty of Kinesiology in Split, and which has five representatives in the Faculty Council. They also receive available support from the Student Administration Office which is opened every workday from 8.00am to 14.00pm for all students’ questions. Heads of the Departments as well as Vice-Dean for Education and Students and all the teachers are available to students themselves for their guidance and orientation during the course of study.
