MESPOM welcomes students in Vienna from 2020

October 25, 2019

Following the opening of Central European University's new campus and accreditation of MESPOM in Austria, incoming MESPOM students will start their studies in Vienna from September 2020. Vienna will be an exciting new home for MESPOM's 1st year Fall and Winter semesters: it has all the facilities of a modern, progressive city in the heart of Europe and is consistently ranked as one of the most livable cities in the world. While famous for its concert venues, theaters, and museums, Vienna also provides opportunities for great outdoor activities on nearby Lake Neusiedl, the Vienna Woods, and the Alps. Vienna has a wealth of different research and international institutions, which have already started collaboration with MESPOM through visiting lecturers and internship opportunities.

MESPOM will preserve its ties in Budapest, which is only a short train ride from Vienna, and which has been a wonderful home to MESPOM for the last 15 years. We are finalizing the details of the academic activities which will continue to take place in Budapest. The other components of MESPOM, including the Spring semester at the University of the Aegean in Greece and the 2nd year's Fall semester in Lund or Manchester will remain the same. The degree awarded to MESPOM graduates will also have an additional Austrian degree certificate.             

Due to MESPOM relocation, EMJMD scholarships will not be available for MESPOM students in 2020-2022. We will offer other types of financial assistance such as partial tuition fee waivers and CEU Master’s excellence scholarships for the study periods students are in Vienna.
