About “Farewell Speech of the Year 2022” video campaign


Create a farewell speech, make a short video about your studies as a Stipendium Hungaricum Scholarship Holder and send your message to other graduate students. Share your favourite memories during your university years and tell how you developed both personally and professionally during your Hungarian stay! Do not forget to send us both your video and a written version of your speech!

The videos will be shared on the Study in Hungary Official Facebook page and the followers of the Facebook page will vote for the best video, which will be the “Farewell Speech of the Year”. The first 30 participants who send their videos will be awarded. Do not forget that to participate your video should follow the criteria enlisted below in the “Practicalities” section!

Who can participate?

The campaign is open to all graduating Stipendium Hungaricum Scholarship holders finishing their studies this year. Participants must be over 18-years-old.


If you are in, please upload your video to wetransfer.com and send 1) your data, 2) the link of the video and 3) the written version of your speech to the contact person of Tempus Public Foundation. The video should not be longer than 1,5 minute and it must be in MP4 format with a maximum of 1080px. The size of the video cannot be more than 10 GB. One person can submit one video.

Please be sure to pay attention to such technical details as the following:



Natural light is the best! Daytime is preferable. Find a window or soft light source and record with the light coming from in front of you. Keep it simple! Try to avoid virtual or chaotic backgrounds. Find a quiet place with no background noise. Try to make sure there are no echoes or background distractions while recording.




Look directly into the camera. Try not to look at yourself while you’re speaking and keep the camera at eye level. You can sit or stand, as long as you are comfortable! Try to keep a slight distance from the camera. We recommend staying around one arm’s length away from the camera.


Language Format Total Duration (maximum) File
English Horizontal or vertical 1,5 minute MP4



You can choose any style – be personal, creative and let your imagination run free. Also, you can tell your message in a poem, in slam poetry, or in any other format, just be innovative and creative!

We also gathered some suggestions which should be in your Farewell Speech:

What did it mean to be an international student in Hungary?

How did you develop during your Hungarian stay both personally and professionally?

What were your favourite memories and Stipendium Hungaricum moments from your university years in Hungary?

What did the Stipendium Hungaricum Scholarship give to you?

What did you learn about yourself?

What is your message to other Stipendium Hungaricum students?



The campaign period starts on 30 May and ends on 15 June, 2022. On 30 May, Tempus Public Foundation (the “Organizer”) shares the official post of the “Farewell Speech of the Year” campaign on the official Facebook page of Study in Hungary. Also, the Organizer notifies graduating Stipendium Hungaricum students by email and publishes the opportunity on stipendiumhungaricum.hu.
