CEU Summer University's COVID-19 Policy

This policy helps to reduce the health risk to Summer University participants, faculty, and staff of the summer school and the broader CEU community. It aims to protect participants from contracting COVID-19 while in Budapest and to avoid unexpected disruptions in their attendance and travel plans.

To ensure this safe and healthy environment on campus, all participants must possess and send proof of their valid immunity/vaccination by the start of the course.

If a participant fails to provide this documentation, they can only enter the campus with a negative PCR test, not older than 72 hours (CEU will not cover the cost of the test).

Failure to comply with this policy will lead to exclusion from the program.

Uploading the certificate of immunity

Participants will be required to upload their proof of immunity to the e-Learning page of their course by the day before their course starts. We will send details of how to access this platform around the 7th of June, 2022. 

Participant Guidelines On-Campus

While currently it is not mandatory to wear masks or keep physical distancing, we recommend the following practices on campus: 

  • wearing FFP2/ KN95 masks on campus
  • social/physical distancing
  • staying home if unwell
  • avoiding crowded environments
  • using the hand sanitizers on the premises

Please note that Hungarian regulations may change in response to the evolving health situation and will always supersede CEU's requirements described above. Summer University participants are expected to follow the latest regulations. Click here to read more about these regulations.

Medical Services at CEU

If someone experiences symptoms of Covid-19 or any other illness, they can contact the CEU Medical Center. In case of Covid-19 symptoms, participants must self-isolate immediately for at least 5 days and notify the Summer University office. Self-isolated participants can continue their coursework online. Please note that all Summer University participants must hold valid health insurance that covers medical services and expenses related to Covid-19 during their stay in Budapest. While CEU Medical Services is available for Summer University participants free of charge, other medical providers may charge for the medical treatments applied.

CEU COVID-19 protocol on campus

  • Distribution of hand sanitizers in classrooms and in the common areas
  • Frequent cleaning and disinfecting of classrooms and bathrooms.

CEU will closely monitor and follow the advice from national and local authorities on how to keep the CEU campus safe for our community. We will always keep our participants updated on this webpage regarding Covid developments.
