Central European Exchange Program for University Studies (CEEPUS)
If you are a student or instructor of a CEEPUS member institution and you would like to study, research or teach on one of Europe's most beautiful campuses for 1-10 months, then come and experience Debrecen with CEEPUS!
What is CEEPUS?
CEEPUS (Central European Exchange Program for University Studies) is a multilateral mobility programme between Central European higher education institutions. CEEPUS came into being in 1993, when Hungary, Austria, Bulgaria, Poland, Slovakia and Slovenia signed the first cooperation agreement. The agreement was later joined by Croatia, the Czech Republic, Romania, Serbia, Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia and Albania. The CEEPUS Program aims to promote teacher and student mobility. Students can spend a study period abroad or teachers can undertake a teaching period at a partner university. These opportunities are designed to strengthen professional and personal relationships among Central European scholars empowering and developing Central Europe both in political and economical levels that way.
Who can participate?
CEEPUS is open for university students enrolled at one of the member institutions who have completed at least one year of academic study, and all faculty members of the member institutions. Your home institution may have additional requirements.
Do I have to speak Hungarian in order to participate?
No. The University of Debrecen offers a number of English language programs, mainly in the fields of natural sciences, computer science, engineering, medical studies, music, gender studies, drama studies, British and American studies. Additional courses may be started on demand.
What can I expect as a CEEPUS exchange student?
As a CEEPUS exchange student you will have tuition waiver at the University of Debrecen as well as a monthly stipend (students: 73,000 HUF / month, teachers: 110,000 HUF / month).
