NCFU Experts Talk About Studies in Hungary

The NCFU experts jointly with the winners of the Stipendium HUNGARICUM program delivered their speeches at an online seminar arranged by the Ministry of Education and Science of Russia, telling students about both advantages of studying in universities of Hungary and associated issues.

The seminar was held for potential members of the scholarship program, and the opening welcome word came from Alexey Ridiger (Director, Interphysica State Center, which operates academic mobility programs within inter-country agreements), who noted that joining the Stipendium HUNGARICUM program offers a good    chance to get a degree from a European university on a free basis, while studying in English. The said academic mobility program is one of the most popular among Russian students, proof to it being the 289 applications submitted this year, while 200 Russian students are currently studying in 17 universities of Hungary.

The leader in applications is the NCFU, and Vladimir Samoylenko (Head of Dept for International Projects and Programs, NCFU) pointed that such activity demonstrated by the NCFU students is for a reason – the NCFU has been long involved in the process of internationalizing its education and is a member of various academic mobility programs.

– Each year we have over 60 students joining various programs to study in Europe and Asia, – Mr. Samoylenko was quoted as saying. – The Stipendium HUNGARICUM program, which enjoys support from the TEMPUS Foundation is especially popular here, and is one of the most attractive, as we see it. It offers training within more than 600 programs in 28 universities of Hungary, which are famous for their academic standards, and we are happy to have joint graduates with Hungary. This year we launched a joint degree program with the Corvinus University of Budapest, and our students are welcome there.

After that several NCFU students shared their experience of studying in Hungary and telling that it is not about academic activities only yet also about meeting new people, making friends, and getting to know other cultures.

Apart from academic success stories the participants of the seminar were also told about the eligibility criteria and the deadlines to submit papers.
