Application and admission procedures
- The applicants need to send an appropriately filled application form and the required application documents to the coordinator of the chosen program. (For details see the list of programs in the menu on the left.) The documents about the results of applicant's earlier studies and accomplishments should be either originals or attested copies in English, or authorized English translations. (For the required documents see "The application form", and also check the descriptions of programs.) The applicant has to enclose: Curriculum Vitae (resume) in English, copy of passport with personal data, four recent passport photographs (signed by the applicant). A letter of recommendation in English (from a secondary school principal or teacher) is welcome, but it is not prerequisite for the application. Once the completed form and the required documents, appropriate for the program, are received, the applicant will be informed in a "Letter of Acceptance", which allows the student to start the administrative procedure for obtaining a D-5 visa (see "Starting a student life in Hungary") and later it is also needed for the enrollment to the University.
- Those who need to have a D5 visa and apply to us directly, have to pay the application fee of 140 EUR in advance together with the prior payment of the tuition fee. Those who apply to us with the help of our authorised organizing partner, do not pay application fee. (See also: "Passport and visa")
- The deadline of application: For applicants form non-EU countries it is the end of May because the administration of application as well as the arrangement of the D-5 visa take approx. three months, and all these have to be done by the time of registration to the fall semester. For applicants from the EU countries the deadline is the end of July. (Please note that the deadlines are for the arrival of the documents to the University, so the time of mail, which can even be two weeks, must also be considered.)
A committee of teachers from the appropriate program interviews the applicants in order to decide the program (pre-university preparatory, B.Sc., M.Sc., or Ph.D.) that the applicants can be admitted to. Right after the event, the applicants are informed about the decision and conditions of admittance and soon they are notified also in a letter.
