How and why was CEU the right choice for me? Well then, start reading to know the how and why.

It has only been a few months since I started studying at CEU. I got exposed to many different sorts of experiences by coming in contact with various sections of the university even though I am not present in Vienna physically.

But now, come to think of it, there are a few reasons why I believe that CEU turned out to be the right choice for me, at least.

For Starters, the Location

Situated in one of the most beautiful and safest countries of Europe, Austria, CEU’s building looks spectacular.

Naturally, students from different countries want the country they are headed to be safe, and Austria is undoubtedly one of the safest countries.\

Double Degree

One of the best universities in the world, Central European University offers a dual degree to its students, which is accredited in Europe and America.

This means that it will be beneficial for students when they enter the job searching phase and will help them find the best job suited to their skills and degree.

A Strong Alumni Network

It is a highly reputed university around the world with so many alumni working in various organizations worldwide. The alumni events taking place every few years help you connect with other alumni and ask for help in your future or career choices.

So, this makes me realize that if I need to find support or any help in my job search, I will have a strong network of alumni that will support me.

World’s Top-Ranking Departments

The university contains some of the best faculty who have been to some of the best institutions themselves, but this is not where the story ends.

CEU itself has some of the departments which are listed as the world’s top-ranking departments and what’s better than that?

Job Opportunities

The university has a job opportunity known as ‘Career Next.’

The portal provided by the university helps to find internships, fellowships, part-time and full-time jobs, along with any vacancy open in the university.

There is no better way to look for an opportunity than the portal itself.

Wonderful Study Buddies

Instead of being fiercely competitive, my study buddies are accommodating. They are available to help with assignments and tasks assigned by the professors.

Not only this, but they share the good and the bad, all sorts of moments with you. Even from miles away and studying online, I have been able to connect with a lot of my classmates and make friends with most of them.

There are other reasons like research grants, emergency funding options, mental help sessions, student activities, and clubs.

But then the blog would have been super long, so I just decided to go ahead and write my favorite reasons why CEU has been the right choice for me.
