Study in Hungary

Go to a country where you are valued based on who you are and not only by your ability to clear difficult exams.

Why Study in Hungary?

Universities in Hungary have a strong focus on internationalisation, and offer high quality degree programmes. Hungarian higher education is known for its reputation in science fields, such as medicine and dentistry. The higher education system is divided into colleges and universities, which follows the Bologna Process. You can study for a bachelor, master or doctoral degree at a Hungarian institution.
There is one of Hungary’s universities in the 2019 QS World University Rankings top 500, and 6 in the top 1000. The highest ranked of these is the University of Szeged, which is placed at 470th. The next highest ranked is the University of Debrecen, which is placed in the 601-650th group.

Tuition fee in Hungary

The tuition fees you pay will depend on where you choose to study and at what level. If you are from an EU country, you may be able to apply for a state-funded place. This will be under the same system as Hungarian citizens, so applications may be competitive. International students may also be eligible for a scholarship provided by the Hungarian government. On average, you should expect to pay between 2000-4000 Euro for engineering and management and 10,000-13,000 Euro per year for medicine and dentistry. You should also expect to pay application/examination fees of around $500/€440.

Cost of living

Living costs will depend on where you choose to live in Hungary. If you live in a bigger city, it will cost more than a smaller city or town. On average, you should budget for between 300-500 Euro per year. This accounts for accommodation, groceries, travel and any other necessary expenses. Another living cost that international students need to consider is health insurance. If you are an EHIC card holder, you will be able to access the same healthcare as Hungarian citizens, but will incur some costs. If you are studying on a governmental scholarship, you might be able to apply for a social security card (TAJ card). This will allow you to access most public healthcare for free. If neither of these apply, you will need to purchase a health insurance policy.
