Period of study
The first step is to decide how long you wish to study abroad. The academic year in Hungary consists of two semesters – therefore you can choose from these three possible study options:
|Study option||Study period|
|Year-long||September – June|
|Semester-long (Fall)||September – December|
|Semester-long (Spring)||February – June|
The courses have their own specified assessment methods and requirements. These may include a mixture of written papers, examinations, special tests, presentations, or other practical assignments. Teaching methods vary from subject to subject, although most involve a mixture of formal lectures and smaller seminars, which provide the foundation for further independent study. The last month of each semester is the exam period. There is a possibility to retake your exams.
