APPLICATION FOR STUDIES FROM ACADEMIC YEAR 2022/23

For international students with third-country citizenship the application period for Academic Year 2022/23 ended on 30 April 2022.

For Ukrainian citizens the application deadline for Academic Year 2022/23 was extended until 31 July 2022 – 23:59 CET. Following 31 July 2022,

Ukrainian citizens are still able to apply for studies in Academic Year 2022/23 within the framework of a new Call for Applications. The new Call for Applications can be accessed here.

 

The application system is already open. All applications shall be submitted through the online application system of Tempus Public Foundation. The online application system can be accessed at https://apply.stipendiumhungaricum.hu/.

For Ukrainian citizens, the application for studies in Hungary starting in Academic Year 2022/23 is continuous even throughout the rest of the summer and Academic Year 2022/23 itself. The accepted applicants will be able to start their studies throughout the academic year, even after the beginning of the academic year. The purpose of the new Call for Applications is to help those Ukrainian citizens who wish to start their academic studies in Hungary in Academic Year 2022/23 but have missed the previous application opportunity for any reason.

The Students at Risk Subprogramme supports full-time higher education studies leading to a degree. The host universities will enrol the scholarship holders as partial study students (first phase) at the start of their scholarship studies. At the end of the first phase, the host institutions will evaluate if the scholarship holders can be admitted to a full degree programme leading to a degree (second phase) and continue their studies.

The only exception when applicants can apply for a full degree programme is when the study programmes start in the Spring Semester (“keresztfélév”), instead of Autumn. In this case, scholarship holders can start their full degree studies without a partial study phase.
