I would like to get all information regarding the application process, deadlines, application documents... where can I access all information?

 

Who should I contact regarding my questions related to administrative issues and/or the academic training itself?

 

I am planning to apply for the scholarship, but I do not have an IELTS / TOEFL English certificate. Does the University of Miskolc accept a document issued by my previous institution certifying that the language of instruction was English during my BSc / MSc years?

Yes, we do accept official documents signed and stamped by the university which issued the applicant's degree, stating that the studies were completed in English.

 

Am I going to be equipped with any supporting letters which I can use for applying for a VISA?

You will need 2 documents for your VISA application from Hungarian side:

 

I WON THE SCHOLARSHIP AND I AM ACCEPTED BY THE UNIVERSITY OF MISKOLC. WHAT SHOULD I DO TO START MY STUDIES?

1.: VISA APPLICATION: You have to apply for a Hungarian VISA in your home country (nothing can be done once you are in Hungary). When applying for a VISA you need among other documents – the list of required documents varies from country to country - a DECISION OF ADMISSION and a LETTER OF AWARD.

2.: DECISION OF ADMISSION: It is issued by the University of Miskolc and uploaded electronically to the online application system.  It confirms that you are accepted to study as a full-time / part-time student at the University of Miskolc as well as states that you are accommodated in the Residence Hall of the University of Miskolc. 

3.: LETTER OF AWARD: It is issued by the TPF. You have to download it from the online application system. It confirms that you are a Stipendium Hungaricum Scholar and lists the allowances you are entitled to.
 
 

How to complete the online registration at the University of Miskolc? Should I put 'not applicable (N/A)' as visa number, if my visa is not ready yet (and the deadline of filling the registration form is almost over)? Or do I have to wait until I receive my visa to be able to provide its number?

If your visa is not ready until the deadline of completing the registration form, you should put a ’0’ where your visa number is required, and when you get your visa, you should inform the colleague of the International Office about your visa number via e-mail.

The most important thing regarding the online registration form is to fill it in carefully, without any mistakes. Use your full name, as it is written in your passport, and if you are not sure about anything related to the form, please turn to the International Office instead.

 
 

WHEN SHOULD I ARRIVE TO HUNGARY?

In the first week of September, during the so-called registration week. You will have time then to move into the hostel and to get to know the campus a bit. You will be assigned a Hungarian mentor student, who will help you in finding your way to the Residence Hall on the day of your arrival and will show you around. The mentor student will contact you prior to your arrival via e-mail/facebook and will also inform you how to contact the social network of SH students at the University of Miskolc. 
The earliest day you can move into the Hostel is 3rd of September.
Please make sure that you arrive by the time of the ORIENTATION AND WELCOME MEETING, held at the beginning of each academic year, specified during summer.
 
 

WHO SHOULD I CONTACT REGARDING THE DATE OF MY ARRIVAL?

Please, inform your mentor student and the IRO about your date of arrival in Hungary ASAP by sending an e-mail to your mentor and the relevant SH officer (see menu COORDINATION / ADMINISTRATIVE ISSUES)
