Exchange Opportunities


Please, be informed that a delay is expected in the launch of the new Erasmus+ Program of 2021 – 2027. The lateness of the start of this new program cycle have been caused by the delay of the acceptance of the new Erasmus budget cycle of the European Commission as well as the problems caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Unfortunately, launching an open call for applications for the Erasmus+ Study Mobility program is not possible yet, and currently we have no timeline in place, when it can be opened.

CEU Erasmus Office closely monitors developments and announcements and will publish any updates as soon as they are available. Our advice for students is to plan with study mobility opportunities for the Winter and/or Spring term in AY 2021/2022 at the earliest.

Please, write to with further questions.

The European Commission's Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency has granted CEU the Erasmus Charter Higher Education for the period 2014-2020 (HU BUDAPES47). See also CEU's Erasmus Policy Statement.

The Erasmus+ Program combines 7 EU education, training and youth programs, including the university exchange program, formally known as the Erasmus Program. The mobility component of the Erasmus + program enables students to study for part of their degree in another country, encourages teacher mobility and promotes transnational cooperation projects among universities across Europe.

Erasmus was an integral part of the Lifelong Learning Programme (LLP) from 2007 to 2013, replaced by the Erasmus+ Program in 2014. Since 2005/2006, CEU has been active in the LLP Erasmus program with a steadily growing number of student and teacher exchanges.
