Mission of the Programme

The Stipendium Hungaricum Scholarship Programme was launched in 2013 by the Hungarian Government. The core mission of the programme is to increase the number of foreign students in Hungary and to encourage Hungarian higher education institutions to attract top foreign students.The programme is based on bilateral educational cooperation agreements signed between the Ministries responsible for education in the sending countries/territories and Hungary or between institutions. Thousands of students from all around the world apply for higher educational studies in Hungary each year. The number of Stipendium Hungaricum applicants is continuously increasing as well as the number of available scholarship places. The Programme is managed by Tempus Public Foundation.


We are pleased to announce that the Faculty of Medicine is participating in the Stipendium Hungaricum Scholarship Programme in the academic year 2021/2022

In order to get your ”Recommendation Letter” please contact the Foreign Students’ Secretariat.
