Social hours take place every month at various venues and range from informal gatherings at bars to jazz concerts, from Vienna Opera (pictured below) to picnics.
IR does not only provide excellent academic training but is also a fun place to study at! It has one of the most diverse student bodies at CEU with students from more than 30 countries each year offering a unique multicultrual experience.
The department also works together with the students to ensure that their experience exceeds pure classroom interaction. As part of the pre-session the department each year organises a day trip where students and professors have the opportunity to get to know better both each other and the country. IR also supports student initiatives which often include cultural and social events such as seasonal holidays parties or a student organised pub quiz.
