“One of the main reasons for choosing CEU was the intellectual caliber of the faculty. After completing my first term, I am proud to say that I have been pushed to become a better writer, researcher, and student. The professors have excellent resources available and are happy to talk outside of the classroom to foster an environment of academic excellence.” – Kassel Franco Garibay, Mexico| MA in Critical Gender Studies


“CEU is not only about academic life,it is about student clubs which make learning fun and more productive. Clubs, such as debate, arts, various sports and hiking, give us the opportunity to meet different people with whom we share similar hobbies. The activities we do together expand our interests and are also a great way of socializing. You have a hobby and want other people to join you? Just contact the Community Engagement Office, and you can build your dream team in a few hours.”- Gohar Mkrtchyan, Armenia | MA in Economic Policy in Global Markets


Vienna was love at first sight! I am so glad this city is the new home for CEU. Here, I feel like there is always something to do thanks to museums, galleries, restaurants, cafés and green areas to explore – and the amazing public transportation system. I also really appreciate that we are right in the center of Europe, so we can easily travel to other countries and discover the region.” – Sara Anselmo, Portugal | MA in Critical Gender Studies
