Bard-CEU Study Abroad Program

Through Bard College, students have an exceptional chance to attend CEU, a private university in Vienna and a graduate institution in Budapest with an extraordinarily international student body, to take graduate-level courses as undergraduates.

(New movie to be updated soon!)

During their stay at CEU, students join departments matching their academic interest, while taking advantage of the freedom to choose courses from any of CEU's departments and programs. Motivated participants have the opportunity to complete internships and take part in various extracurricular activities.

Students can apply for the Fall semester (September - December), Winter semester (January - April), or a full academic year. Study Abroad students at CEU are allowed to take between 12-16 credits per semester. The program also comprises field trips,  cultural programs and orientation about life at CEU and in Vienna.

Students are enabled to create a semester of challenging and stimulating courses, chosen from across CEU’s curricula. Credit can be transferred easily to any U.S. institution. For motivated undergraduates who want to spend time at a truly international university, exchanging ideas with colleagues from more than 100 different countries.
