The University of Zagreb deems the scientific and artistic work of students to be an integral part of their education. The direct inclusion of students in scientific and artistic work comprises an extremely important and integral part of the study programme, whereby the students’ critical thinking and creativity are encouraged, along with the habits of independent education and acquisition of additional knowledge and research skills. By undertaking a project and writing a paper, students learn scientific or artistic approaches and methods as active participants, and in so doing learn to set hypotheses, collect and evaluate data, present the results and conclusions of their research, and think and conclude critically and in a scientific manner throughout their entire professional career. Therefore the University encourages all students to be included in scientific and artistic work in the academic community, and it is expected of the heads of scientific and artistic programmes and other teaching staff that they will enable interested students to be included in work on scientific and artistic projects within the University.
