Stipendium Hungaricum


Hungary provides high quality education in the heart of Europe. Besides the quality of education and degrees recognized throughout Europe and beyond, students are attracted by the affordable living costs with a favourable cost-to-value ratio, the safe and friendly living environment with convenient public transportation, the central location of the country in Europe and the unspoiled natural beauties combined with a 2000 year-old, rich Hungarian history and several UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

The Stipendium Hungaricum programme is based on bilateral educational cooperation agreements signed between the Ministries responsible for education in the sending countries/territories and Hungary or between institutions. There is a growing demand of international students to study in Budapest. Currently 60 Sending Partners are engaged in the programme throughout 5 different continents and the geographical scope of the programme is spreading each year.

Thousands of students from all around the world apply for higher educational studies in Hungary each year. The number of Stipendium Hungaricum applicants is continuously increasing as well as the number of available scholarship places. In the academic year 2018/2019 more than 5000 students could begin their studies in Hungary in the framework of the Stipendium Hungaricum Programme.

Last year 20 PhD students and 63 MSc students were enrolled at our Faculty arriving from Iran, Turkey, Kazahstan, Jordan, Pakistan, China, Brazil and many other countries. If you are interested, you may receive more information on the application process to the programme.

The kind relationship between teachers and students is the most thing I like because it gives me a comfortable feeling and encourages me to do my best during the semesters. In addition to improve personal skills and exploring new cultures and mentalities by sharing experiences with international students.
