The new Minister of Defense, Ivan Anušić, shared details about his education with members of Parliament after they questioned him about his lack of education. Anušić left high school at 17 to go to war, but when he returned in 1993, he finished high school to avoid being judged. In 1997, he took out a loan to pay for semesters at the Faculty of Kinesiology in Zagreb and a year ago he received the status of ‘bachelor’.
However, there was some confusion about the completion of his studies, and Jutarnji List reached out to the administration of the Faculty of Kinesiology in Zagreb to clarify. It was revealed that Anušić is currently enrolled in the professional graduate study in Coach Education. He completed the undergraduate professional study in Coach Education in 2021 and is now working towards a professional specialist in the coaching profession if he completes his current studies.
When asked if he intends to continue his studies while serving as a minister, Anušić confirmed that he plans to do so. He explained that he is closer to the university now and will put in the effort to continue the studies he started two years ago.
