CEU Student Parent Support
The new CEU Student Pregnancy and Parent Policy and the renamed Student Child Support (SCS) Scheme have been approved by the university.
The Student Pregnancy and Parent policy outlines the rights and protections afforded to CEU students in relation to pregnancy, maternity and parenthood, as well as the support services provided by CEU. The Policy also sets out adjustments and protections related to termination and miscarriage. It establishes the principles and procedures through which students can take parental leave, outlining support mechanisms and processes providing pregnant students and student parents with equal educational opportunities at the university.
The goal of the Student Child Support (SCS) is to help full-time, enrolled students who legally reside in Austria or Hungary, together with their children, to overcome the challenge of balancing childcare and academic life. CEU provides monthly support to students with children (up to the age of 18) during the entire duration of their studies irrespective of the relevant Austrian/Hungarian state family benefits or allowances.
Please visit our Student Parents SharePoint site to familiarize yourself with the details of the policies, the criteria of eligibility and the application process.
In case you already have ongoing support in Hungary, kindly note that the monthly amount(s) will be automatically adjusted from February 1, 2021.
The policy is retroactive for those who are going to start the application in Austria from the beginning of the Academic Year or the date of the eligibility started.
