Nearly 35,600 international students studied in Hungary by the last academic, higher education search platform Erudera reports.
Hungary hosts almost three times more students than it sends abroad. The latest statistics indicate that, recently, Hungary hosted precisely 35,579 foreign students, and it sent up to 13,038 students to pursue higher education abroad – Erudera said.
From the figures mentioned above, more than 100 different nationalities decide to pursue their higher studies in Hungary.
This large number of foreign students coming to Hungary for higher education, mainly comes from these countries:
Germany – 3,430 students
China – 2,377 students
Romania – 2,216 students
Iran, Islamic Rep. – 2,216 students
Serbia – 2,169 students
Slovakia – 1,750 students
Ukraine – 1,202 students
Turkey – 1,138 students
Nigeria – 970 students
Norway – 906 students
These foreign students particularly choose these Hungarian Universities:
University of Debrecen: number of international students – 6,297
University of Pécs: number of international students – 4,156
University of Szeged: number of international students – 4,020
Eötvös Loránd University: number of international students -3,437
Semmelweis University: number of international students – 3,274
“Hungary is becoming an increasingly favored study abroad destination, maintaining great credibility over the years, and has a solid tradition in the sciences, particularly medicine. Farther high-quality education, Hungary also offers a cheerful and welcoming culture, a fascinating history, and beautiful cities.”
Alma Miftari from Erudera said.
Hungary’s higher education has been ranked 44 out of 148 countries in the Global Report of 2014. Currently, there are 67 higher education institutions in Hungary, public and private. 37 out of 67 of these higher education institutions are located in Budapest offering 428 study programs.
The University of Szeged is presently Hungary’s highest-ranked university, placed 501-550 in QS World University Rankings and 27th in Emerging Europe and Central Asia.
Another reason that international students so frequent Hungary is that the cost of studying is not expensive compared to other European countries. Tuition fees usually stand on an average of 2,500 to 3,000 euros per year, and the
living costs can be low
especially if you budget your finances.
