Program-Specific Exams

In some cases, academic programs have additional entry requirements (tests, exams, interviews, etc.) for admission in addition to the general CEU requirements. Please see the website of the relevant unit for details.

Individual Interviews

Some CEU units may interview some of their pre-selected candidates as part of the selection process. Individual interviews commence shortly after the first review of the application files, and continue until the relevant notification date. Each unit will contact eligible applicants to make the necessary arrangements. In the case of Skype or telephone interviews, arrangements may be made to invite candidates to a location where their identity can be verified.
