Application process
CEEPUS Freemovers need to find and contact the Hungarian host university themselves and obtain the Letter of Acceptance document from the host university.
We recommend to choose a host institution that already has CEEPUS activity in order to minimise administrative obstacles. A list of Hungarian institutions with CEEPUS activity can be found here.
The online application form must be submitted through the central CEEPUS website.
Documents to attach to the online application form
  • CEEPUS Freemover Letter of Acceptance from the host institution
  • 2 CEEPUS Freemover Letters of Recommendation issued by lecturers of the home university
  • CEEPUS Freemover Teachers’ Letter from the host institution
  • All documents have to be signed and stamped. Only the offical CEEPUS forms are acceptable (downloadable after signing in to the central CEEPUS website). Applications without the reqired official documents are not acceptable.
Application submission: continuously from 1 July 2018 to 30 November 2018.
Applications will be proceeded in case of formal eligibility and in the order of arrival.
There must be at least 45 days between the submission of an application and the start of the tendered period.
