At the end of the first application cycle, the Student Recruitment Office reports a significant rise in the number of applications to CEU’s master’s and doctoral programs. The number of applications and the number of applicants have risen by nearly 30% compared to the final figures from last year.
Adding to CEU’s diverse community, prospective students come from 142 countries (compared to 125 in 2013-2014). By 2015, CEU has managed to multiply its reach in most geographic regions: the number of applications from the EU and the CEU’s traditional region increased by 18%, North America by 6%, Asia by 30%, Latin America and Caribbean by 39%, and Africa and the Middle East by 76%.
Beyond CEU’s main application deadline of February 1, 2015, most programs have additional application deadlines (April 1 for tuition scholarship applicants and June 1 for self-financing applicants). Thus, the Student Recruitment Office expects to see a further increase until the final deadline of June 1, 2015.
The Student Recruitment Office thanks CEU’s academic departments, alumni and current students, and CEU’s Local Area Coordinators for their cooperation and contribution in promoting CEU to the future student body of the university.
