"International students are cared for."


ELTE is high ranking among other universities in Hungary. It has a wide variety of courses and faculties to choose from. It is also located in the capital, making it easy to access and it also provides exposure to interculturalism, because Budapest is like a melting pot of different cultures from all over the world.

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

International students are cared for. My teachers are open-minded.

What are your challenges in your study program?   

The courses are structured differently from my own country, in Hungary they use the credit system, which was confusing to me, how to achieve the credits, etc.

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

In my CV I will be able to demonstrate an ability to survive in a foreign land, with a positive attitude and resilience.
