Pre-University - Entrance Requirements
If you are looking to study in Hungary or beyond Hungary in Europe, but have not yet acquired the necessary academic and linguistic competence, the pre-university programmes are here for you! These programmes have been specially designed for non-native speakers, and the admissions requirements reflect this.
Admissions to the Faculty of Humanities are considered on holistic basis. The Faculty's admissions officers consider the whole applicant, not just empirical data like a GPA or SAT scores. We are not simply looking for students with good grades, but want to admit students who will contribute to the campus community in meaningful ways.
The information below reflects what we are generally looking for in pre-university applicants.
