Every year, thousands of foreign students attend various Hungarian higher education institutions, most of them as scholarship students, but more and more come to Hungary for self-funded studies, both from within and outside of Europe. Today, there is a considerable international community whose knowledge and experience gained in Hungary, as well as their links to Hungary, have mostly remained unexploited so far. Hungary’s first international alumni network seeks to provide this missing platform, to which the Alumni Hungary online portal will offer a virtual meeting point for active foreign students.
From 25 until 29th March, delegation of Study in Hungary had the opportunity to attend the 2019 Annual APAIE Conference in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia, complemented with a forum for the representatives of Hungarian universities and of the diplomatic missions serving in the Southeast and Far East Asia region and finally, a visit to the University of Kuala Lumpur. Besides, Study in Hungary organised a reception for international partner institutions at Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, which brought together 70 representatives from all over the world.
