Course schedule

The consolidated timetables of all courses offered to all tracks within the Doctoral School can be downloaded from this page. For your information, you can also find below the course schedules for the previous academic years.

The majority of the Doctoral School's courses are held in the Fall semesters (September-December) and the Winter semesters (January - April), but sometimes the Spring semesters (April - June) also have interesting course offerings.

Pre-session is an introductory week organized by CEU each year in the beginning of September to familiarize first-year students with CEU units and life in Budapest. Zero week follows the Pre-session every year, and consists of introductory classes that help students to decide which elective courses suit their interests the best.
