University education in Hungary started in the 13th and 14th centuries. Those were founded as Royal institutions and were the predecessors of our state universities today. Naturally, a lot of changes took place since then, one of the biggest of which was the starting of the first international educational programs in Hungary in the mid 80’s. On May 1st 2004 Hungary became the member of the European Union which gives automatic acceptance of the degrees and in some cases an automatic license to practice.
Since the 80’s numerous universities developed international curricula and there is a vast range of prestigious universities offering programs taught in English.
Apart from its natural and cultural beauty and pleasant geographical features, Hungary is an attractive place for student life because the cost of living and prices in general are a lot lower than in most other EU countries. Tuition fees of universities are also more affordable than institutions of the same prestige and standard elsewhere in the area.
