Age limit

  • The summer university programme is open mainly to candidates who are above 18 years old and finished secondary school.
  • High school students (between 15-18 yrs) can attend the summer program ONLY if the parents/relatives sign a parental declaration to undertake that they should have all the resposibility for the teenager in connection with his/her attendance, health condition, meals, accommodation and care. The program management (teachers, leaders, other adult participants) is not responsible for any accident or injury to the teenage while attending the classes, during working hours or otherwise in the school premises (except for providing immediate assistance to get medical facilities in case of emergency).


Before 29 July 2019:
Applicants are entitled to a 98% refund of the tuition fee (2% is non-refundable transfer cost) until the summer university starts (29 July 2019). To request the refund, applicants are required to send an email with the subject line “Request for refund” to the email address and declare it in the email that they do not come to participate in the summer university.

After 29 July 2019:
After the start of the summer university (29 July 2019), applicants are not entitled to the refund of the tuition fee.

The refund process:

As we are a Hungarian state university, the refund process goes through a long and slow administrative procedure. It means that the refunds will be paid for sure in November or December 2019.
