Master’s Program in International Relations and European Studies, 2014/2015



“ I came to CEU because I wanted to study at an
international place that focuses on Europe and the
European Commission. I respect the mission and
ideas of the University and I especially like the fact
that there is no majority of ethnicity. I value
working with students from the local region who
were exposed to war and whose stories play a
valuable role in helping me to better understand
the history and politics of Central Europe. The
opportunity to live and work with students from
all over the world allows us all to see beyond
stereotypes, which I think is very positive. ”

Merit-based Scholarships Available
