School is starting soon. So we have looked at where the most expensive public transport student passes are. Surprisingly, the Hungarian capital is not the most expensive university city in Hungary.
Eduline.hu has collected the most expensive student fees in Hungarian university towns and cities. The Hungarian capital Budapest is surprisingly not the most expensive. In Budapest, students have to pay HUF 3450 (EUR 8.5) for a monthly pass. And that means you can use all means of transport within the city limits, even the train.
In Győr, the student pass costs HUF 2200 (EUR 5.4) for a month and HUF 6500 (EUR 16) for a quarter. In Sopron, you can get a student pass for a very cheap HUF 630 (EUR 1.5). For a whole quarter, it costs only HUF 1900 (EUR 4.7). In Veszprém, a monthly student pass costs HUF 2350 (EUR 5.8), while a quarterly one costs 6700 (EUR 16.6). In Nyíregyháza you can buy a student pass for 2850 HUF (EUR 7), while in Eger it costs 2280 HUF (EUR 5.6).
In Pécs, the monthly pass is HUF 3900 (EUR 9.6), while in Debrecen it is HUF 4400 (EUR 10.9). In Szeged, the monthly pass for students is HUF 4000 (EUR 9.9) . In other words, Budapest is not even among the most expensive three.
It is important to note that you can only travel with a student pass if you have a valid student card.
A survey was carried out on Hungarians studying abroad. According to the respondents, there are much better career opportunities with a foreign degree than with a Hungarian one. Research by the Blochamps Capital Youth Affluent Financial Survey reveals that young people often aim to settle in big cities in Western Europe. The survey interviewed hundreds of young people studying abroad.
Of those surveyed, 26 percent said they would like to find a job in Hungary in the next 5-10 years, while 12 percent have already decided which destination abroad they would like to go to. 14 percent would settle where they go to school. For three out of five young people, career prospects are the main factor in deciding which country to settle in.
Survey respondents think it is easier to find a job in Hungary with a foreign degree. However, they are not valued by Hungarian companies. Those who study abroad think that the salary, career prospects and working environment are better abroad, napi.hu reports.
