A Hungarian delegation – led by the Tempus Public Foundation – participated in a series of professional programmes in Shanghai, China from 26th to 30th October. The main goal of the visit was to promote Hungarian higher education, scholarship possibilities and academic cooperation by participating in the China Education Expo (CEE) 2016 fair and taking part in the Chinese-Hungarian Higher Education Forum which was organised by the Foundation in close cooperation with the Consulate General of Hungary in Shanghai.

The visit in China was the second time in this year where the representatives of the Hungarian institutions introduced their services. At this time TPF co-organised the Chinese-Hungarian Higher Education Forum with the Consulate General on 27 October. Nineteen representatives attended the event from fourteen Chinese institutions. The Forum was opened by Levente Horváth, Consul General emphasizing the importance of such events where real discussions and meetings could be realized. It was followed by the presentation of Lívia Szentmártoni, Consul for Culture and Education about the cooperation between China and Hungary in the field of education. More presentations were held about already existing best practises. The Forum ended with a marketplace session, where all Chinese participants could have the opportunity to discuss cooperation possibilities with the Hungarian institutions.

The second event – China Education Expo in Shanghai – was focused on student recruitment with the aim of introducing Hungary as a study destination between 29-30 October. Among 34 national pavilions Tempus Public Foundation provided the ‘Study in Hungary’ booth for the Hungarian delegation. Hungary could be competitive as a small European country for Chinese students, because it provides cheaper, but still high-quality higher education and loads of English language courses in different fields. The Stipendium Hungaricum Scholarship Programme has also caught the Chinese students’ attention providing tuition-free education with monthly stipend, free dormitory place and other advantages for them to study in Hungary. It was a great feeling to listen to some Chinese students speaking in Hungarian in Shanghai.

The delegation was represented by the following universities:

  • Corvinus University of Budapest,
  • Eötvös Loránd University
  • Eszterházy Károly University
  • Pannon University
  • Semmelweis University
  • Szent István University
  • University of Debrecen
  • University of Pécs

At the China Education Expo (CEE), the delegation was supplemented by Central European University.

Tempus Public Foundation attended the Sarajevo University Fair that took place in Sarajevo, 4th November 2016. The ‘Study in Hungary booth’ attracted high interest among the participants of the fair. In order to recruit students the representatives of TPF provided information about the Hungarian higher education and promote the Stipendium Hungaricum Scholarship Programme.
