EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS


 

Though Hungary is a relatively small country, it enjoys worldwide recognition for its educational system, representing academic excellence for 600+ years. The first University in Hungary was founded in 1367 in Pécs, which located in the southern region of Hungary. Today there are 67 higher education institutions in Hungary, ranging from top research Universities to minor colleges. These Universities and colleges are financed either by the state, private organizations or a church. (Source: http://studyinhungary.hu/study-in-hungary/menu/studying-in-hungary/higher-education.html)

In 1983, Hungary was the first country in Central and Eastern Europe to offer Degree Programs in English and German to tuition-paying international students. The country’s Universities attract over 15,000 foreign students to its various International Degree Programs.

 

MEDICINE

English language programs in Medicine are offered at Semmelweis University, the University of Szeged, and the University of Pécs. Degrees granted in English are identical to those granted in the Hungarian and German-speaking programs. 

While there are some differences in the curricula from University to University, generally, the first two years of the six-year programs (twelve semesters) serve as the foundation of basic medical knowledge (Basic Module). From the third year, theoretical training is extended, with regular clinical practice, where students intensively take part in the work of the clinical departments and the teaching hospitals (Preclinical and Clinical Modules). In the last two semesters - the Clerkship Year - students perform clinical rotations for forty weeks.

At the conclusion of the six-year program (State Board Examination), the title Doctor of Medicine (medical doctor; Dr. Med.) is granted to those who have met all the requirements of the training. (Source: University of Szeged Admission and Academic Bulletin and Semmelweis University Bulletin)

DENTISTRY

English language programs in Dentistry are offered at Semmelweis University, the University of Szeged and the University of Pécs. Degrees granted in English are identical to those granted in the Hungarian and German programs.

While there are some differences in the curricula from University to University, generally, the five-year program (ten semesters) is designed to unify basic and clinical sciences. In the first two years, students are taught basic sciences — medical and dental courses — which are the foundation of clinical dentistry (Basic Module). From the third year on, more emphasis is placed on the study of dental diseases and their treatment (Preclinical Module). The last two years serve the intensive clinical study of each of the various disciplines of dentistry, with emphasis on the assessment and management of patients (Clinical Module). 

After the successful completion of the five-year program (State Board Examination), the title of Doctor of Dentistry (dentist; Dr. Med.Dent.) is awarded to those who have met all the requirements of the training. (Source: University of Szeged Admission and Academic Bulletin and Semmelweis University Bulletin)

During the first two (preclinical) years, students study Anatomy, Histology, Embryology, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Zoology, Physiology, Biochemistry, Ethology, Agrareconomics, Botany, Biomathematics and Computer Application. English, Latin, and Hungarian languages can be chosen as optional courses.

The entire curriculum, divided into core subjects and electives, consists of more than 5,000 hours, a curriculum standard for the European Community. Before the conclusion of the degree program, the students must submit a thesis and take a state examination.

The five-year English language program at the University of Veterinary Medicine leads to the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree. (Source: http://www.univet.hu/en/admission/general-information.)

BEAUTIFUL HUNGARY


BEAUTIFUL HUNGARY


 

Hungary is a landlocked country; one of the oldest European countries in Central Europe, bordering Austria, Croatia, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Ukraine. Hungary's landscape consists of flat to rolling plains, divided in two by its main waterway, the Danube. The government system is a parliamentary democracy. 

When Nobel Prize winner, Enrico Fermi, was asked if he believed in extraterrestrials, he replied: "They are among us, but they call themselves Hungarians".
  
Hungarians speak a language and form a culture unlike any other in the region: this distinctiveness has been both a source of pride and an obstacle for more than 1,100 years.
 
This is the country:
- which boasts one of the world's most beautiful cities: Budapest, the "Pearl of the Danube"
- where 2,000 year-old Roman ruins and 400 year-old Turkish monuments can be found side by side
- where Central Europe's largest freshwater lake, Balaton, provides a natural paradise for its visitors
- where hundreds of therapeutic mineral springs gush up from its depths

 
Hungary’s rich history and culture, its beautiful cities and landscape, and its delicious gastronomy, all contribute to the country’s popularity as a tourist destination. There is one more thing that keeps bringing visitors back to Hungary, namely, their legendary and renowned hospitality. (Source: http://visit-hungary.com/about-hungary)

Budapest

Budapest is a lively metropolis in the heart of Europe. Often described as the " The Little Paris of Middle-Europe", it is famous not only for the monuments that reflect its own 1,000-year-old culture, but also for the relics of others who settled here. Remains from both the Roman occupation and much later, the Turkish occupation, can still be seen in the city. After the Ottoman Empire, Hungary's union with Austria had a particular influence on the city's form and style. (Source: http://visit-hungary.com/budapest)

The sizeable international student population in Budapest's various Universities provides for a rich social life outside of the classroom, complemented by the wide variety of unique, ongoing cultural events. With the proximity of Ferihegy International Airport, and the availability of low-cost airlines, students also have the opportunity to go on affordable weekend getaways to most anywhere in Europe.

Szeged

Szeged, situated on the banks of the River Tisza, is a thriving University town, as well as the cultural and economic centre of South-Eastern Hungary. It is a city with deep historical and cultural roots, inhabited since Roman times. Szeged was rebuilt after the great flood in 1879, when most of the city was destroyed.

With its University campus right in the heart of the city centre, its museums, art galleries, theatres, cinemas, clubs, coffee-shops, pubs and large parks, Szeged offers all the excitement of a big city, while still being easy to explore on foot or on bicycle. 

By Hungarian standards, Szeged is a large city with a population of 160,000. It is often called "The City of Sunshine”, as it enjoys an average of 2,000 hours of sunshine annually. (Source: University of Szeged, Admission and Academic Bulletin)

 

Pécs

Pécs‘s favourable geographic location and climate, combined with the beautiful landscape of the surrounding Mecsek Mountains, provide for a stunning setting and great variety of outdoor activities. In 2010, Pécs, rich in cultural offerings, won the title, “The Cultural Capital of Europe – 2010”, which translated into unparalleled growth and activity in the city. 

In late 2016, the Corriere della Sera, one of Italy’s most popular newspapers, published an article in its travel section, ranking Europe’s 20 best university towns. Pécs is the only Hungarian town to be mentioned in the prestigious list of cities: “charaterized by a good quality of life, rich cultural heritage and the reputation of their universities.” (Source: http://viaggi.corriere.it/viaggi/weekend/le-20-citta-universitarie-migliori-deuropa/)
