Code: 53499
ECTS: 5.0
Lecturers in charge: prof. dr. sc. Gordana Medunić
Lecturers: prof. dr. sc. Gordana Medunić - Practicum
Take exam: Studomat
English level:


All teaching activities will be held in Croatian. However, foreign students in mixed groups will have the opportunity to attend additional office hours with the lecturer and teaching assistants in English to help master the course materials.
