Eligibility requirements for Master's programs

Applicants must have a first degree from a recognized university or institution of higher education, or provide documentation indicating that they will earn such a first degree before enrolment in a CMU Master's program. For its one-year US accredited Master's programs, CMU normally accepts students who have completed four years of undergraduate university study. Applicants with a three-year Bachelor's degree will be considered for two-year Master's programs (both for the ones accredited in the US and in Hungary).

Admission into the accredited one-year programs with a three-year Bachelor's degree will also be possible for suitable candidates.

Eligibility requirements for doctoral programs

Applicants must have a Master's degree (or equivalent) in a related field from a recognized university or institution of higher education, or provide documentation indicating that they will earn such a degree before enrolment in a CMU doctoral course of study.

Students enrolled in a doctoral program at CMU must not be simultanously enrolled in other institutions of higher education, and are required, at the beginning of their studies at CMU , to sign a declaration to this effect.

Transfer from doctoral programs at other universities

Students enrolled in doctoral programs at other institutions may request transfer to a CMU doctoral program. In such cases, the doctoral committee of the relevant CMU department may accept the student on condition that the student:

  • takes the complete coursework component of the program, or
  • takes some courses of the coursework component of the program, and/or
  • passes the comprehensive examination component of the coursework.
