Do I have to reside in Hungary?

November 11th, 2020

The scholarship holder must habitually reside in Hungary during the study period and must inform the higher education institute in case of leaving for a consecutive period of more than 10 working days during the study period. In case the intended stay abroad for private purposes exceeds 10 working days but does not reach 30 days within a semester, it is the host institution’s responsibility to authorise the absence. In case of failing to meet the requirement of giving information about the stay abroad prior to the travel, the higher education institute has competency to inform Tempus Public Foundation of the fact, and the unauthorised abroad stay may result in the termination of the student’s scholarship status. For details related to abroad stays, please check out section III.3.5 of the Operational Regulations (Scroll down to the Rights and Obligations section).
