International Alumni Network in Hungary
The story behind
The first International Alumni Network, coordinated by the Tempus Public Foundation, is aimed at establishing and enhancing an interactive, highly engaged and vibrant alumni community of former full-time and part-time foreign students who have attended or graduated from any higher education institutions in Hungary. 

Dear Alumni,

We really appreciate that you have signed up for our new alumni newsletter.

The Tempus Public Foundation is the leading Hungarian organization when it comes to international mobility and scholarships in education. The number of foreign students who decide to study at one of Hungary’s higher education institutions are continuously increasing. The Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship programme is the perfect example of it. More than 2300 Stipendium Hungaricum newcomers started their studies at Hungarian universities in the Autumn semester. The programme attracts more and more foreign student every year from Eastern Europe, Latin-America, the Middle-East, Africa and Asia.

In addition, Hungary is also getting more popular among foreign students when it comes to the Erasmus+ programme. According to statistics released by the European Commission, Hungary is the 18th most popular destination country out of a 34-nation field.

So the time has come to form a special network from these students and to establish a first of all virtual space for networking. The first International Alumni Network, coordinated by the Tempus Public Foundation, is aimed at establishing and enhancing an interactive, highly engaged and vibrant alumni community of former full-time and part-time foreign students who have attended or graduated from any higher education institutions in Hungary. The purpose of the network is to provide the possibility for boosting professional networks and a forum to connect and (re)unite with former fellow students and alma mater.

We are working hard to build an efficient alumni network, and to provide useful services for you and for the future alumni. A few of you has already reassured and encouraged us regarding this initiative and also applied as volunteers to support the community in different ways and we are really happy about that. We ensure you that you will meet our enthusiastic alumni volunteers soon!

This alumni newsletter is actually the first step towards an efficient alumni network where we want to bring you the most important Hungarian news and information from all fields such as education, science and research, social and professional events, networking, business and a lot of other topics so everybody can find something interesting.

We are really excited about the International Alumni Portal too that will be the so called soul and heart of the community and will be launched in the near future. So stay subscribed and get the related information from first hand.
