Similar to many European Union (EU) countries, higher education in Croatia is traditionally characterized by a high-level government support for financing academic and non-academic services. However, private-sector financial contributions are becoming increasingly important in higher education financing. Models of higher education financing in European countries differ according to the share of funding allocated by the private sector to higher education. Indirect government support to student standard through subsidies for accommodation, meals and other services, as well as scholarships and student loans are part of the country’s social policy.

The main goal of this paper is to provide an overview of the EU practices in supporting higher education, and to analyze types and levels of financial supports for students in Croatia. Having in mind that there is a lack of relevant data which would enable a deeper comparative analysis of the Croatian model of higher education financial supports in comparison/ with respect to other EU countries, in the conclusion we identify the prerequisites for this topic’s future analysis.
