Croatian Defense Minister Ivan Anušić (HDZ) has recently made the decision to freeze his student status at the Faculty of Kinesiology in Zagreb. This move came after an article about his studies at the faculty brought attention and potential pressure to both the faculty and professors due to his ministerial position.
Anušić, who completed a three-year study at the Faculty of Kinesiology and obtained baccalaureate status before enrolling in a postgraduate course, is currently a senior at the institution. Initially, he announced that he would continue his studies in Zagreb while having more time. However, after receiving numerous media inquiries about his studies, he changed his mind and decided to freeze his student status.
Interestingly, Anušić chose to stop his high school education and join the volunteers who defended Croatia at the age of 17. He then enrolled in his studies in 1997 and obtained his first degree status as a coach in 2021 before enrolling in the next two years of studies.
