The Summer School Sail and Learn offers a unique cultural and educational experience for international students. The summer school program is based on the principles of the Business Model Canvas where students develop their own innovative models by working in teams.
Throughout the 7-day program, students visit a number of cultural and historical sights on the islands that help them develop a sense of local culture. This content helps them develop a sense of understanding how tourism and life on the islands are intertwined. Besides that, students get to know examples of innovative tourist services and products which help them develop their own ideas within the program itself. The additional workshops on Innovative Tourism and Marketing help students develop skills to build their marketing plans and strategies with their team and prepare for final project presentations.
Students are situated on sailboats during the program, and share their living space and cabins with other students. Hence, the Leadership part of the program is present through all activities included in the program. The leadership thematic workshops help develop communication skills for international teams, and raise team dynamics. Living arrangements on the boat throughout the program are a part of the practical Leadership students face daily—with challenges and tasks aimed at increasing team cohesion and developing an understanding of various leadership styles and working in not only international, but also highly diverse teams based on the cultural , experiential and educational background of team members.
The Sail & Learn Summer School offers the opportunity to gain 5 ECTS points (3 credits). It covers topics from Leadership, Entrepreneurship and Innovative Tourism. Join the Summer School 2019 and spend your holidays sailing Croatia.

The students start working on their ideas on the first day of the program, when they form their project teams. They develop their project ideas as the program progresses, and in the final stage have the support of the lecturers who take on the role of mentors. The business model canvas workshops provide students with the tools to build their project idea, the tourism workshops give them skills to develop content, and the additional program activities give students examples of innovative tourist services developed by local entrepreneurs and businesses. The leadership workshops help students develop skills of international communication and working in teams, as well as solving conflict situations and handling stress.

Wonderful Adriatic treasures
Telašćica Bay is located in the central part of the eastern coast of the Adriatic Sea, in the south-eastern part of the island of Dugi Otok. For its extreme beauty, richness and importance, this bay surrounded by 13 islands and islets, together with 6 islets inside the bay itself, was proclaimed a Nature Park in 1988.
The ACI Marina Piškera is a particular favourite amongst boaters because it is located halfway through the Kornati National Park, and is surrounded by a mosaic of islands and islets, rocks and lighthouses. It is situated between the islands of Piškera and Panitula Vela, on the northern coast of the island of Panitula Vela.
When speaking about the 6000 year long existence of the Skradin area, historians endowed with wisdom search for the reasons of that continuity in its location and geo-strategic position.
History always looks for great and sensible reasons. However, the truth is often much simpler since people and everyday life are smarter than history. Skradin is simply magical in its each and every detail.
Krka National Park lies within Šibenik-Knin County, and covers a total area of 109 km² of the loveliest sections of the Krka River, and the lower course of the Čikola River. The national park is a vast and primarily unaltered area of exceptional natural value, including one or more preserved or insignificantly altered ecosystems. The purpose of the park is primarily to serve science, culture, education and recreation, while tourism activities have also been introduced for its visitors.
