Student life at the Faculty of Humanities and Social Studies

Konyvtar_-_szamitogepekOur international students commence the academic year by attending the orientation week organized by the faculty to welcome them. During this week students participate in an intercultural sensitivity training that prepares them for working with Hungarian and other foreign cultures. They can apply these skills at student dormitories where they might stay. Since these only have a limited number of places available, the international staff, their mentors help the students find a flat that they can share with other students, if needed. Besides their coordinators, students can count on their mentor as well, a Hungarian student that helps them with daily affairs and informs them about the numerous programs that our faculty and city offer. Regardless of the program they are in, our students may deepen their knowledge of Hungary by attending Hungarian language and culture classes. Our students can also explore the cultural and sports facilities, and they can enjoy the different festivals and concerts in the city.
