The journey of the Hungarian experience has ended for 40 international students who graduated this year from the University of Miskolc. The graduates received their diplomas during an official ceremony organized by the university. As a confirmation of their great experience, the students presented a short video to reflect all the unforgettable moments that they lived as students in Miskolc.

GENERAL INFORMATION

The Hungarian Government announced the policy of Global Opening as part of which the Stipendium Hungaricum Scholarship Programme was launched in 2013 for foreign students. The Programme is based on intergovernmental contracts on educational affairs signed between the Hungarian government and the partner countries. The aim of the programme is to promote cultural understanding, economic and political relations between Hungary and other countries. 
 

Grant proposals are to be submitted in the sending countries by applicants for pre-selection. Following an evaluation process applications are forwarded to the TEMPUS PUBLIC FOUNDATION, which is the Hungarian coordination unit of the Programme.

Increasing number of SH sending countries

On the below two pictures, it can clearly be seen, that the number of participant countries is growing year by year. This means, that Hungarian higher education institutions have the opportunity to welcome Stipendium Hungaricum students from a wider scale of countries every year.

To see the difference only 1 academic year can make, we created two maps.

The first one shows the sending countries of our students before 2017:

 

The second map shows these countries after 2017:
