Hungary

Looking for a European study-abroad destination that’s slightly more off the beaten track? You may want to consider studying in Hungary...

Bridging Central and Eastern Europe, Hungary combines many of the attractions of both regions – but above all prides itself on having its own distinctive identity. This pride is not without foundation. Though relatively small, Hungary has much to offer visitors, ranging from the architectural and cultural delights of capital city Budapest, to vineyard-covered hills and historic castles.

Universities in Hungary
While not as firmly established on the study-abroad map as European destinations like the UK, Germany or France, Hungary is committed to becoming a higher education hub. Hungarian universities are welcoming growing numbers of international students, both on exchange programs and for full degrees, and are increasingly offering courses taught in languages other than Hungarian, most commonly English.

In line with the Bologna Process, which aims to make higher education systems across Europe more compatible, Hungarian institutes offer three levels of degree: alapképzés (bachelor’s), mesterképzés (master’s) and doktori képzés (doctorate).

Bachelor’s programs typically last three or four years, master’s programs one or two, and doctorate programs three years. In some subjects, it is also possible to complete a single five or six year course, which combines the bachelor’s and master’s levels.

With so many natural and manmade attractions, combined with relatively low living costs and a strong focus on internationalization, it seems likely that Hungary’s popularity as a study destination will continue to grow.
Choose to study in Hungary now, and you could be ahead of that trend.

Hungary might not seem like an obvious choice for studying abroad and it’s true that its universities aren’t exactly brimming with British students, but the country is becoming increasingly popular with international students, particularly those interested in science-related degrees such as medicine and veterinary science.

  • There are 25 universities in Hungary, along with a number of colleges that offer full bachelor’s degree programmes.
  • There are a wide variety of courses taught in English, ranging from undergraduate degrees all the way up to postgraduate courses.
