Tuition Fees and Funding Options

Tuition fees

Compared to the rest of Western Europe, tuition fees in Hungary are very affordable.

Tuition fees vary depending on the selected university and study programme but below you will find a starting point for your further studies and an opportunity to see the bigger picture. To obtain accurate information regarding tuition fees visit the website of the chosen university.

Most institutions require the tuition fees to be paid before enrolment.

Funding options 

Those who want to find funding options as self-financed students can take student loans with a favourable interest rate from the Hungarian Student Loan Centre.

To apply you need to be under 40 years of age and must hold a permanent residence or immigration card. To help with repayment of the loan, an incomebased repayment scheme is available. This means that the amount of money a student needs to pay back and when it needs to be repaid depends on how much the student is earning.

Another option to fund your university studies is to get a student job through student-job agencies. According to Hungarian law a student is entitled to have either a full-time (8 hours) or a part-time job (4 or 6 hours), however scholarship contracts may control the conditions under which a student can work. The minimum wage for unskilled work for 8 hours per day is around 430 EUR while the salary is approximately 560 EUR for skilled jobs.
