CEU board of trustees authorises the university to open recruitment for 2019-2020 academic year

The documentation the university submitted to prove its "full compliance" with the Hungarian legislation is currently being examined.

The Central European University (CEU) board of trustees has authorized the university to open recruitment for the 2019-2020 academic year.

An official letter from a representative of the New York State Education Office confirms that CEU carries out educational activities in New York State, the university said.

The CEU board has approved extending and developing the university’s educational program in New York, it added.

The documentation presented by the university is currently being examined by the relevant authorities, the spokesperson for the governing party, Fidesz, Balázs Higvéghi commented to ATV News today.

The CEU board decided this March to set up an additional campus in  Vienna. The board meeting held last weekend approved the rental of an appropriate location for educational activities in Vienna and the start of enrolments for 2019 there, the statement said.

CEU said in mid-May that it believes it is in “full compliance” with a new rule requiring foreign universities in Hungary to operate a campus in the country in which they are based.
