Student Recruitment Internship Program

Join CEU's Student Recruitment Internship program!

What is the Student Recruitment Internship program about?

We at CEU's Student Recruitment Office couldn't be prouder to work with our amazing group of volunteer interns throughout the academic year. The  program involves current students in all kinds of student recruitment activities which aim to promote CEU's degree programs and help prospective students across the globe.

Each graduate intern cohort consists of 35 master's and PhD students, selected from over 100 applications at the start of the academic year. In 2021–22, Student Recruitment Interns took part in 50+ projects and 10+ recruitment-related and soft skills training sessions and group meetings. 

As student recruitment at CEU reaches out to interested students in about 140 countries, most of the activities are online-based, although we plan to re-introduce  on-campus elements as well.

The program spans a roughly 10-month-long period (October - July), through which you have planty of opportunities to choose projects that best fit your interest and time-schedule to accumulate the minimum of 15-hours time credit. 

The Student Recruitment Internship is a well-structured volunteer-based (non-paid) initiative, where students are proud to practice and develop their skills while shaping the next generation of incoming CEU students.  

The first BA intern cohort was launched in 2022 to support the Student Recruitment Team in various activities related to BA Student Recruitment.
