CALL FOR APPLICATIONS - SPRING SESSION 2018

We invite refugees and asylum seekers registered in Hungary to apply to our 2018 Spring Session (February 10 - June 30, 2018). This is a non-degree university program, with classes running for 15 weeks, on Saturdays, at Central European University (CEU).

WHY SHOULD YOU APPLY TO OLIVE-WP?

We have been offering courses at CEU since January 2016. Each session, we accept up to 45 students.

You should apply to OLIve-WP if you want to study in an English speaking environment and be part of a welcoming community. Every accepted applicant has access to the university library and computers, gets a student card and email account, and can take part in the events and activities organized at CEU. Students with a satisfactory attendance and performance record will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the Spring session, during our End-Of-Term Ceremony (30 June 2018).

WHO IS ELIGIBLE?

All refugees and asylum seekers registered in Hungary can apply. Priority will be given to women applicants and those who plan to study in the future. For candidates who have been in OLIve-WP before, acceptance depends on their past performance.
