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.
Run for over 10 years now, the Erasmus Mundus programme supports gap-filling international master’s programmes. Hungarian higher education institutions, too, have significant achievements in this excellence programme run by the EU.
How can effectively co-operate the fields of education and the world of work? How can companies and enterprises get more interested in dual training? These were the main issues of the conference on 11-12 June 2015 in Budapest, attended by 95 participants, representing 10 European countries. The event was organised by the Austrian, Romanian and Hungarian Erasmus+ national agencies, with the support of the NetWBL international network.
