Underdeveloped Bachelor Programs

The Central European University is a private institution promising to uphold various values of free and open democracies throughout their degree programs. Despite the content provided being largely reflective of this expectation, the attitude of the university and the structure of the undergraduate programs in particular, are not. As opposed to the graduate programs, there is a striking lack of financial aid available, and the yearly tuition has been set to increase for each new cohort. Such a significant financial commitment is unjustifiable when there is a shortage of undergrad professors, minimal organisation of required courses (at the detriment of the students), and a lack of effort to integrate undergraduates into the community. The temporary campus in Vienna is less than ideal and coupled with ridiculous expectations of first years to reside in CEU contracted accomodation (at double market value, with virtually no protection of rights) makes for an expensive and underwhelming experience. Additionally, CEU actively discourages student employment, not only failing to provide opportunities, but preventing employment outside of class times.
