More opportunities to study in Hungary with CEEPUS
Hungarian CEEPUS quota tripled for the 2023/2024 academic year. Following the decision of the Ministry of Culture and Innovation, the available CEEPUS quota has increased from 450 scholarship months to 1400 months. As a result, the following academic year will see more partnerships with national participation than ever before, and Hungary can host a record number of mobility participants.
CEEPUS has a strong network of partner universities in Central and Eastern Europe, which allows for greater collaboration and exchange opportunities. You can connect with like-minded individuals from across the region and build valuable relationships. The program provides you access to high-quality academic resources and facilities, as well as opportunities to work with leading experts in various fields.
The thematic networks focus on a wide range of fields, including medicine, environmental sciences, engineering, social sciences, and humanities. By joining one of these networks, students can immerse themselves in a particular academic area and gain valuable insights from experts in the field.
A network consists of a minimum of 3 universities from different CEEPUS partner countries. Students and teachers can get CEEPUS mobility grants if their universities are part of the network.

Please note, that in some countries there is only a limited amount of freemover grants available. Therefore, if you want to start a freemover grant application, get in contact with the host National CEEPUS Office (NCO) for further assistance. (https://www.ceepus.info/content/contact#NCO)
