About CEEPUS HU

CEEPUS (Central European Exchange Program for University Studies) is an exchange academic programme in the fields of education and research which involves 15 Central-European countries, that offers both teachers and students opportunities to spend a study or teaching period abroad at the partner universities.

The main activity of CEEPUS is university networks - created by minimum 3 universities from 3 different countries - operating joint programs on special subject fields. CEEPUS offers mobility grants for students and teachers in this framework. It is a unique opportunity to share knowledge and experiences among countries with a common cultural heritage and a strong background of academic cooperation.

There are two ways of submitting your CEEPUS Student Mobility application

  1. AS FREEMOVER

If your home institution is not part of a CEEPUS network that has a relevant scientific topic for you, you can choose to submit a Freemover application. Freemover applications can be financed only when the CEEPUS networks did not use their quota and there are still free scholarship months. Therefore, this option is usually available for the second semester. For the first semester, limited number of Freemover scholarships are available in some of the CEEPUS countries of which the National CEEPUS Office publishes information on their website at the beginning of summer. 

Submission deadlines for CEEPUS mobility applications
