If you want to make the most of your stay here by having a closer look at the local community and learn some Hungarian to be able to find your way around easily, join our multidisciplinary study programme focusing on Central European and Hungarian culture, political and social history.


The aim of the programme is to enhance smoother communication between foreign and Hungarian students, to satisfy your possible linguistic needs and to foster integration into the local community.
The Crossroads in Hungary programme was designed to introduce students to the Central European region with presenting milestones in its political and social history and culture with the aim of raising intercultural awareness based on a multidisciplinary approach and content-based language learning.

The programme contains the following courses:
1) Between East and West (3 credits; 2 classes/week)
2) Intercultural Communication through Central European Film (1957-2010) (4 credits; 4 classes/week)
3) Hungarian as a Second Language (4 credits; 4 classes/week)

Depending on the number of students interested, we also plan to organize several short visits to places of interest to discover the city and its past and present.

To complete the programme, you are required to sign up for all the three classes above, but you can also attend any of these classes separately if you are interested in only one or two of them.

Upon the successful completion of the programme you are granted a certificate issued by Budapest Metropolitan University of Applied Sciences declaring you a young expert on Hungarian and Central European studies.

To sign up for the programme you only need to register for the classes above the same way you sign up for any other classes.
