NONPreparatory Course in Hungarian Language

More information



Programme description:
The ten-month-long preparatory programme of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade is offered to foreign students who plan to pursue their full BA/BSc or undivided (one-tier master) studies in Hungarian institutions of Higher Education. After the preparatory course, admission criteria for university programmes are the following: successful final exam and successful entrance exam at the chosen university. The main aim of the programme is to prepare the most capable students for their Higher Education. Therefore, we not only teach Hungarian Language and different subjects in Hungarian, but also improve writing, communication and other skills and competencies related to the students’ future university studies. In the first semester (September-December) students only study Hungarian Language (30 classes a week). Depending on their specialisation, they also learn different subjects in Hungarian (e.g.: Biology, Chemistry, Maths, History etc.) during the second semester (January-June). At the end of the course, students have to take a final exam.
