Call for applications - Student exchange programs with partner universities 2021-2022 HU
The International Strategy Office, Rector's Cabinet ELTE is calling for applications within the framework of the institutional bilateral agreements on student exchange programs. Students can apply to one of the partner universities for the fall and/or spring semester of the academic year 2021/2022.

General Information

Students can apply to study 1 or 2 exchange semesters abroad at one of the partner universities as tuition fee waiver exchange students.

The exchange is enabled within the framework of the institutional bilateral agreements. After the finalization of the application and selection process, the selected candidates will be officially nominated by ELTE. Every nomination has to be subsequently approved by the partner (i.e. receiving) institution as well.

After having been informed about the approval of the partner institution, all selected students are strongly advised not only to rely on the general information provided by the ELTE International Strategy Office, but – as the rules might differ – also to consult the website of the receiving institution in order to educate themselves on further steps. In most cases, the nominated students are expected to apply at the receiving university as well.

Regarding to this, the International Strategy Office will inform the selected students who have successfully finished the application procedure.

Please be aware:

1) neither ELTE nor the partner institute can provide scholarship

2) students who are currently studying at ELTE with a Stipendium Hungarcium Scholarship cannot apply to this scholarship

However, the selected candidates are eligible to apply for the Campus Mundi scholarship which also supports studies at partner universities outside Europe. Eligible for the scholarship will be considered only those students who have already been nominated for the student exchange.

Who is eligible to apply?

Full time Bachelor’s, Master’s or PhD students of ELTE.

In the case of part-time students, please check the specific requirements of the student exchange programme at the website of the chosen university. Not all institutions accept this form of exchange hence in this case, part-time studens can not apply.

Partner universities to choose from

It is the sole responsibility of the applicants to choose a university that offers an appropriate level and field of study. Please, study thoroughly the website and the course list of the partner institutions prior to your application.
