Course description

Stipendium Hungariacum scholarship holders (participating in bachelor, master or one tier master programme) are required to take part in Hungarian as a foreign language and culture course in the first year of their studies, and as a compulsory obligation they have to pass the final exam after the two-semester course. The course and exam requirements have been defined centrally by the Tempus Public Foundation. The 2-semester subject is designed to help our students prepare for the final exam requirements regarding both the language and the culture aspects.
