"Adaptation would be the most important challenge, at the same time the most exciting one. My biggest challenge was learning new academic rules and regulations."

Why ELTE?

Best university in Hungary, good position in international rankings, a wide range of programs and courses, it is located in the capital, easy access by public transportation, great professors, amazing libraries.

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

I like my campus, and especially its library. Buildings have history behind them, you can feel the vibe. My professors are caring, helpful, great and they are masters in their fields, so as a student I can learn a lot from them. There are lots of seminars and social activities which I can attend too.

What are  the challenges in your study program?

Studying in a new country means challenge by itself. New environment, new people, new culture, and new language. But life means challenge too, doesn't it?

Adaptation would be the most important challenge, at the same time the most exciting one. My biggest challenge was learning new academic rules and regulations.

How do you think your degree will help you in your life and career?

Back in my country there is no program as the one I study here, so it would help me a lot to find acceptable career, especially in the field I want to work in.

Do you have any recommendations for future students at ELTE?

Be ready for new things. We all need to experience a lot to become ready for our professional life, so why not experiencing them at a university? Always ask and never be shy, there would always be someone to help. Don't miss walking in the city, it is so entertaining.
