General CEU admission requirements: Academic records and Recommendation letters
- What kind of academic records shall I submit with my application?
When you submit your academic records, you must upload a scanned version of your original full Bachelor's and Master’s transcript (if applicable), as well as an official English version/translation of your full Bachelor's and Master’s transcript (if applicable) including an explanation of the grading system. An official English translation bears the stamp and signature of a sworn translator or an authorized official of the institution that has issued the original. It should contain the stamp and signature on each page or over a folded and fastened corner of the document, and include a statement of authenticity in English. You also have to provide the originals (not electronic copies) if your application is accepted.
- I am in the final year of a Bachelor's/Master’s program, and I do not have a diploma/final transcript to upload yet. What shall I do?
Applicants in the process of completing a degree program must submit an interim transcript and, in place of the diploma, a certificate of enrollment confirming their student status and, if possible, stating their expected date of graduation. Please note that in order to be able to enroll at CEU, you must graduate before the academic year at CEU begins.
- I have completed my Bachelor's/Master’s studies but I have not received my diploma yet. What shall I do?
Applicants having completed their degree program and having yet to receive their diploma must submit a certificate of graduation issued by their home university.
- Who can write my letters of recommendation?
You must have two confidential letters of recommendation assessing your ability to conduct graduate-level work, and potential for a successful academic or professional career. The letters of recommendation must be written by faculty members or job supervisors – i.e. people most familiar with your academic and/or professional abilities and character – in English. Please note that these recommendation letters should be submitted directly to the online application system. CEU does not accept letters of recommendation whose contents are known by the candidates concerned.
