"My best advice is: just go. This is an amazing opportunity, and you’ll learn a lot from it."


As ELTE is one of the most traditional universities in Hungary, with a strong reputation in humanities, I thought it would be the right fit for me, and I was right.

What did you like most about being a student at ELTE?

It was amazing to study at a university with such great staff, professors, and colleagues. People were very friendly, helpful, and inspiring to me. I loved the whole experience, especially everything I learned. I learned a lot, both academically and personally speaking.

What were the challenges in your study program?

Well, it was a bit challenging to understand some cultural differences  — especially at the beginning. However I realized that all these challenges were part of the purpose of being there. I love Hungarian culture and Hungarian people with all my heart.

How do you think your degree has helped you in your life and career?

Studying abroad has opened many doors in my career, and I am already putting into practice part of the knowledge I've gotten from it.

Do you have any advice for future students at ELTE?

My best advice is: just go. This is an amazing opportunity, and you’ll learn a lot from it.
