Hi Sitora,
Zlata Kharitonova

Monica Byrne
25:57
Can you tell us a little more of the specifics of the semester in Vienna? How many classes? Living situation? Schedule?

Zak Ja
27:17
could you elaborate about writing samples and its different format/referencing style required by Bard/CEU?
K
28:58
Regarding the Statement of Purpose, I saw that the CEU came up with their own format. For example, the CEU have the word limits of 500 for the first section where students express their interest to the program. In this case, can I still use exactly the same SoP I have for Bard?
Zak Ja
29:06
for internship, what kinds of preparations we are supposed to do/prepare during the semester and whether it could conflict with our class time?
Ahmad Denno
32:57
My name is Ahmad Denno, graduated last year from Bard Berlin and I am 31 years old.Is there a maximum age to apply?Is it a problem that i am having 1 year off study now?Do I have to submit different application for the scholarship (financial aid) or it’s the same one works for the whole program? If it’s different, where should I apply?
Zak Ja
33:42
as I heard that applying Austria visa could be hard/weird for some students based on their nationalities, I am wondering whether/how this program could help admitted students in applying Austrian visa to be more smoother?
Zak Ja
34:47
is there admission/scholarship for this program by Bard/CEU side? and if so, how?
Monica Byrne
35:52
Can you share info about the internship structure, number of hours etc?
K
36:21
Thank you for your answer, Ms. Kharitonova. Just to clarify, submitting the same materials also applies to the Statement of Purpose alongside writing sample. Please correct me if I am wrong.
Monica Byrne
37:20
How many classes do we take in the NY semester?
Zak Ja
37:58
just wanna clarify after completing this program, can the students become access the alumni benefits of only CEU/Bard or both?
Zlata Kharitonova
38:04
About the essay, correct:
Zlata Kharitonova
38:06
a max. 500-word essay;The focus of the essay should demonstrate knowledge on a specific topic; for example, a particular writer's work, a theory or school of thought, or an empirical case, and demonstrate how this topic, from the perspective of International Relations or a related social science discipline, would relate to the applicant's future studies and research in the department.*** Please note that this 500-word essay is accepted as a writing sample by Bard MA in Global studies program in case of application for MA one year program with New York track.

Ahmad Denno
42:18
Great, thank you
Merna Ahmed
42:43
So we have to apply for financial aid both in CEU and Bard?
K
42:46
I heard that the CEU requires reference letters to be arrived within a week of submitting application. May I know if the deadline for the reference letters is the same with the student application which is 1 Feb 2023?
Merna Ahmed
44:10
Oh and would we need a visa for both Austria and the US?
Zak Ja
45:27

Hi! I am expected to graduate in January, but supposing that I will need the next semester for my senior project, will I still be able to apply for the opportunity, or I should be graduated to apply?
Zak Ja
50:50
Is there or what types of academic support for this program for admitted students like academic writing center/writing consultation from Bard or CEU side?
Merna Ahmed
51:04
Re recommendation letters, does it matter too much if one is from a professional supervisor? I read that two academic references are preferred
Merna Ahmed
51:18
Also thank you re visas!
Zlata Kharitonova
54:09
More on CEU’s Academic writing center https://caw.ceu.edu/ They are great!!! You can schedule individual consultations
Zak Ja
55:26
for students coming from conflict-affected region/country, while studying this program and come to experience unexpected financial issue/burden, is there emergency financial support that the student can apply at CEU/Bard?
Ahmad Hijawi
55:31
ok great
Zak Ja
58:44
is it allowed to work volunteering work while working as intern during this program? and the internship is paid/unpaid, or remote/in-person?
Zak Ja

*remote/in-person/hybrid
Aisha
01:00:44
What kind of experience (internships, job experience, etc.) improves my chances of being admitted? Do CEU/Bard pay more attention to academic or extracurricular activities?
Merna Ahmed
01:00:55
Thank you all!
Monica Byrne
01:01:20
Can the Card reference also be used for CEU or do we need to ask references to write 2 letters? (I hate to impose on people…)
Monica Byrne
01:01:28
Bard not Card
Zak Ja
01:01:32
do we need to have mandatory working experience for applying this program?
Merna Ahmed
01:02:05
One final question from my side, one fully funded scholarship was mentioned. Could someone repeat its name and how to apply for it? Other than fin aid. And thank you again!
Ahmad Hijawi
01:07:26
I started applying through the CEU portal, the page refreshed and now it's saying "You have already applied on this course occurrence before and the application has been cancelled or removed. Please try applying on a different course or contact the admissions office." who do I have to contact now? It's not working :)
Zlata Kharitonova
01:08:10
If you have any technical issues with CEU application, please email admissions@ceu.edu
Zak Ja
01:08:17
