Join us at the CEU Open House on Thursday, December 6, 2018!

We have a whole day of events planned for you, including presentations about our academic programs, how to apply to CEU, scholarship opportunities, and student life. Get a first-hand experience of what it is like to be a CEU student at our Open Classes and make sure you visit your department or school’s booth at the Meet your Department/ School session.

If you cannot attend in person, you can still meet our current students online as we are going to live stream the Q&A session at 11:00-12:00 a.m. CET. You can access the live stream here.

View the list of Open Classes here. Can't find the class you were looking for? Please check back for updates.
