A total of ten Hungarian universities were included in the Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU). Among them are names like ELTE, BME and SE.
The field rankings have been compiled since 2017, examining a total of 54 fields – the authors of the list mainly take into account the publishing activity, including the number of publications and their place of publication, citation, the proportion of publications in international cooperation and the number of significant awards in the field. This year’s ranking includes more than 1,800 from 4,000 universities in 93 countries/regions.
More and more international students are studying in Hungarian higher education. The number of students coming from outside of the border reached 38,000 by 2020 – said Tamás Schanda, Parliamentary State Secretary of the Ministry of Innovation and Technology.
According to a statement published by MTI, one of the important commitments of the government’s Graduation Change in Higher Education strategy announced in 2014 was to increase the attractiveness of Hungarian education as part of the modernisation of academic life, and by 2023 40,000 foreign students to participate in higher education.
Their mass decision shines a further positive light on the current state of the higher education available in Hungary. We have innumerable amazing options, but the following ones are internationally recognised.
