The Central European Exchange Program (CEEPUS) for University Studies is a transnational student exchange program with Central and Eastern Europe. CEEPUS relies upon a Central European network of higher education institutions, which consists of various individual, specialized networks. The member states of CEEPUS are Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Austria, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Czech Republic, and Hungary, as well as Kosovo (Universities of Pristina, University of Prizren und Haxhi Zeka University of Peja).
As a TU Graz student, you may spend your stay abroad in a CEEPUS network member country for a period of at least 3 and up to 10 months. It is also possible to stay for shorter periods of time as part of your Diploma / Master’s / Doctoral thesis or when taking part in an excursion.
There are two ways to take part:
Priorities are placed on networking activities; for this reason, Freemover applications are only possible in the summer semester.
A network is made up of at least 3 institutions of higher education from at least 3 different member states. A list of the current networks can be found at www.ceepus.info.
You may only apply after speaking with the network coordinator / partner. The application is submitted online at www.ceepus.info.
Freemovers are students or graduates that want to apply for a scholarship outside a network at a particular institution in one of the CEEPUS countries. The selection and scholarship granting process is conducted by the CEEPUS office in the host country.
Priorities are placed on networking activities, however, so Freemovers can only receive months that are “left over” from other networks. For this reason, Freemover applications are only accepted for the summer semester.
Application Deadline: 30 November
Please note that 4 categories of mobility grants exist:
The support received as part of the CEEPUS Program is a full scholarship that is granted by the host country (for rates, please see www.ceepus.info).
Grants to cover travel costs and supplementary scholarships can be provided by the home country (more information is available from the respective National CEEPUS Offices).
