Doctoral students can request a room in the CEU Residence Center but they will be required to cover the costs themselves.


Doctoral students must seek permission from their department if they wish to work while studying. In this case, CEU may request full or partial tuition payment and may expect the student to cover their living costs.

Please note: Accepted doctoral candidates who apply by February 1, 2018 are automatically considered for financial aid and do not need to apply separately. Admitted students may receive the CEU Doctoral Scholarship for up to three years.
