The doctor of the Year in 2016, still remembers when he arrived to Hungary several years ago. He fell in love with Budapest at the first sight. His studies in Hungary changed his life completely. Tempus Public Foundation’s International Alumni Team had the opportunity to spend an afternoon with him at Gyula, where he lives and works. He talked about the beginnings, his job, community work even about his future plans.
Tempus Public Foundation relaunched its call for applications for foreign applicants to conduct short or long-term research in Hungarian higher education institutions or any research institutes in the academic year 2017-2018 within the framework of the Bilateral State Scholarships programme.
