◆ Credit System (ECTS)

One program consists of many different (subject) courses. One course may fall on between 1 and 9 ECTS credits per semester. Flexibility is one of the best benefits of our Study Abroad Program for it allows the students to take courses from various departments within the University.

Naturally, our students can creatively customize their own study programs based on their personal interests  as well as the compatibility with the mother institutions back home.

*Things to Notice*

ⓐ Compatibility and Transferable Credits: the applicant may need to write up a “study plan” prior to departure from home, referring to the course list provided above, and consult with the student service center at mother institution. In general, the ECTS credits are mostly transferable within the U.S., with a few exceptions depending on the course duration of certain subjects as well as the administrative policy of the institutions. Please verify the compatibility and transferable credits at your institutions before you leave.

ⓑ Temporary Immigration Qualification within Schengen Area: the applicants may have to register as “full-time” students with more than 25 ECTS credits per semester (*unless specified for staying longer than 30 days, in general.) Please check the course list of your desired programs to verify the minimum credit requirement for Schengen Visa.

ⓒ VISA application: in case of “VISA waived nationalities for 30 or 90 days,”the applicants may enter Schengen border with “the itinerary showing return flight + acceptance letter from visiting institution,” subsequently applying for the temporary residence permit within 15 days of arrival, in general. However, if your country is not listed as “VISA waived nationalities” for Schengen Area, you must apply for “student visa” with valid documents listed on the visa qualification of your nearest Hungarian embassy/consulate webpages.
