A university with a mission
Ever since our founding in 1991, we’ve been seeking solutions to the complex problems of our world, in the spirit of supporting open and democratic societies. And while we’ve grown from a regional academic center into a truly global institution, with students and faculty from over 100 countries, our mission has remained unchanged. In fact, we believe this mission is just as important today as it was almost 30 years ago.
Dive into the CEU student experience
With students from some 100 countries, our diverse student body is our most important asset. We nurture a student-oriented academic culture, drawing on the wealth of knowledge and perspectives that our multicultural, multinational community provides. An 8:1 student/faculty ratio ensures a dynamic environment for collaboration and debate. CEU is a place where your voice truly matters, your opinions are heard, and your experience counts – so get involved!
CEU actively encourages and supports students’ interests and activities. In previous years, we organized a great variety of activities from theater and opera visits to dance classes and ice-skating parties. Students may join or even start their own student clubs dedicated to their interests or hobbies from hiking and board games to debate and films. CEU’s Student Leadership and Service Office plans and hosts exciting events for students throughout the academic year.
CEU is a student-oriented university with a wide range of service units that provide personal attention and support, such as:
Student Center – helping with health insurance and legal residence matters
