UD is Hungary’s oldest continuously running higher education institution (founded in 1538 ). Courses and education in general are based on practical and labour-market oriented knowledge far above the national standard. Partnerships with local and national companies ensure students have the opportunity to get an insight into business processes during their studies. Loan and Scholarship opportunities include the Stipendium Hungaricum Scholarship, Erasmus and several federal loan possibilities. Accommodation: students can choose to rent dormitories or private flats; student hostels are located in the campus area, and are primarily occupied by foreign students. Several University restaurants and canteens provide opportunity for students to have meals at the campuses throughout the year.
