Admission to the PhD Programs offered at CEU International School of Doctoral Studies (CEINDO) requires the participation of both the applicant and the relevant program’s Academic Committee.
We recommend that you complete the following steps before applying for admission to a PhD Program:

  2. Research the PhD program you wish to pursue, get in touch with the Program Coordinator and tentative Dissertation Supervisors.
  3. Apply for admission to CEU International School of Doctoral Studies (CEINDO): fill out the Admission Application Form and provide all required documentation.

Upon verifying that the student meets all of the requisites for admission, the School of Doctoral Studies will submit all of the documentation in the candidate’s file to the Academic Committee of the PhD Program. The Academic Committee will then decide whether the candidate is eligible for admission.

Once the applications have been processed, the Academic Committee will notify you regarding the status of your ADMISSION, including detailed instructions to complete the admissions process and, ultimately, enroll in the PhD program.
