Applicants are expected to hold an internationally recognized Master’s or comparable degree in the standard disciplines that constitute cognitive science. A comparable degree in other Social Sciences, Humanities, or other disciplines will also be considered in case of an excellent academic record. We will consider the applications of exceptional students who only hold a Bachelor degree, provided it is in a discipline closely associated to cognitive science.
As part of their application package, applicants must submit the following materials as general CEU requirements:
The completed Online Application Form 2013/2014
A curriculum vitae or resume, including a list of publications, if any
Proof of English proficiency (please see CEU Language Requirements here)
Two letters of recommendation
Academic records - please see http://www.ceu.hu/admissions/apply#3 .
A Department of Cognitive Science would like to add the following departmental specific requirements:
a research proposal of 1000 to 2000 words. The research proposal should include the research questions, aims and objectives of a research project that is related to the ongoing work in the department. The proposal should situate the project in the context of the existing literature, be clear as to the expected academic contribution, and outline possible appropriate analytical frameworks and methodologies. Note that, if admitted, students will not be expected to pursue the research project as it is outlined in the proposal (though it may form the basis of their doctoral work). The submitted research proposal will be used during the application process to assess the applicant's understanding of what doing research in cognitive science entails.
We encourage applicants to consult the website and approach appropriate members of the faculty in advance in order to check the suitability of their research plans.
