In 1991 CEU was founded with a mission. That mission—educating free minds for a free society—is more urgent than ever.
We recently announced our decision to open a new campus in Vienna from September 2019.
We have done so because the Hungarian government has made it impossible for us to operate our US degree programs in Budapest. So we will offer our world-ranked masters and doctoral programs with US accreditation to all incoming students in Vienna.
Returning students will continue their studies in Budapest and students enrolled in Vienna will also be expected to spend part of their academic year in Budapest in our accredited Hungarian facility.
We teach students from over a hundred countries and so you will be joining one of the most diverse, open and pluralistic academic communities in the world.
CEU has always stood for academic freedom and teaching excellence and we are dedicated to provide you with an experience of intellectual freedom that will change your life.
CEU’s mission commits us to make world-class graduate education available to all. We will continue to provide generous financial support for qualified applicants.
As we open a new chapter as a multi-campus university, we encourage you to apply. If you are successful you’ll be making history as the first cohort of graduate students admitted to study both in Vienna and in Budapest.
CEU’s future is exciting. Come join us next year!
