STUDY IN HUNGARY
Hungary is located in Central/Eastern Europe, bordering e.g. on Austria in the West and Romania in the East. It has a population of around 10 million people, of which 3 million live in Budapest, the capital city. Dozens of universities across the country offer programmes that are fully taught in English. Across all academic disciplines, there are hundreds of study programmes in English available for international students. Those degrees follow the European Bologna scheme and are recognised across Europe and elsewhere around the world. Hungary is an exciting, diverse and safe destination for international students. With great universities, high quality of life and low costs, Hungary has a lot to offer. Hungary is also well-regarded for its medical schools and dental schools, many of which offer tailored programmes for foreign students.
Hungary is becoming an increasingly popular host country for international students. One of the reasons is the Stipendium Hungaricum, Latin for “Hungarian Scholarship”. The scholarship is very generous: It includes tuition fees, medical insurance, a housing allowance and a monthly stipend. Every year, the Stipendium Hungaricum is awarded to around 5,000 students from over 70 partner countries. Compared to the rest of Western Europe, tuition fees in Hungary are very affordable. Tuition fees vary depending on school and program. Often medicine and dentistry are among the more expensive options with tuition fees around €20,000 while other less specialized programs can be as low as €4,500. Hungarian higher education has been representing academic excellence for more than 650 years. The first university was founded in 1367 in Pécs, the Southern region of Hungary. Today, there are 65 higher education institutions in Hungary, ranging from minor universities of applied sciences to top research universities.
