CEU's mission is grounded in its pursuit of academic excellence and civic commitment. The university aims at excellence in the mastery of established knowledge, in the creation of new knowledge in the social sciences and the humanities, and in developing the policy implications of both. CEU has built on a combination of American and European, including regional (Central and Eastern European), intellectual and academic traditions and on commitment to social service.

CEU welcomes applications from individuals from all over the world who accept this mission and CEU's curriculum tuned to that mission. As an independent institution of higher education, CEU follows the admissions policy adopted by its Senate. Admissions criteria are set in accordance with internationally-recognized standards and tests.

Admission to Central European University is based upon an overall evaluation of the candidate, including: academic achievement, strength of recommendations, English language proficiency and general compatibility with the aims of the relevant department. Admission to CEU is highly competitive.

For the 2007/2008 academic year, CEU received applications from nearly 3,000 individuals for approximately 600 new places. Applicants to CEU came from over a hundred countries. Prospective students should bear in mind that admission to CEU is highly competitive.
