Apart from being one of the oldest universities in Hungary with very famous alumni, a wide choice of study programs and a well written curriculum, ELTE also faces difficulties and adapts to changes easily, which is definitely what a new student should be looking for in their university.
ELTE managed itself during the pandemic perfectly. It was very organized, and the students were able to receive information quickly about the study process as well as updates about the situation in Hungary in general. I was very proud that my university was doing such a great job, when many other universities struggled to do so.
