Step by Step Process to Apply in Hungarian Universities

Beautiful landscapes, incredible infrastructure, iconic multi-cultural environment and quality yet affordable education make Hungary one of the most popular destinations for students from all around the world.

What makes it iconic is its diverse culture as students from Romania, Slovakia, France, Spain, Italy and Turkey are predominantly drawn to Bachelor’s or Master’s degrees in Hungary.

You can be that lucky person to have ended up in the same class with students from Mongolia, Ecuador, or Turkey once you apply to a university in Hungary. So, if you want to experience higher education ‘the Hungarian way’, Campus Guru is here to guide you through the university application process.

1. Find a Hungarian university

Similar to Germany and other European unified application for respective countries such as, Hungary doesn’t use any application system.  This means that you will have to apply directly through the university online application portal available on their website.

The method typically includes submitting an online application (and, in some cases, even uploading documents online). You might also be required to send your documents — originals or copies — by post. Make sure they are translated and legalised!
