CEEPUS is an acronym for the “Central European Exchange Program for University Studies”. It is an academic exchange programme for students and teachers from Central Europe based on multilateral cooperation agreements in the fields of education and research. The main CEEPUS activity is based on university networks operating joint programmes, ideally leading to joint degrees.

The main objectives of CEEPUS are to contribute to merging the European Higher Education Area and European Research Area by promoting inter-university cooperation and mobility in the framework of EU Strategy for the Danube Region (EUSDR).
