“The University offers various possibilities for study in my field of interest which are not available in other universities in Hungary. For me, the affordable tuition fee was another reason to choose this institution. I believe that the Welcome Weekend was a good opportunity to make new friends from every country of the world as well as to get to know the city of Budapest. I will never forget that experience. Lectures are very interesting, the rooms are well equipped and the professors know how to communicate with the international students and to make the syllabus totally understandable.”
