Gateway to European education


The English Foundation Course (Preparatory Year) has been designed for students who wish to study at ELTE or another European university, but do not yet have the necessary level of language competence and study skills to start a BA degree programme. With a minimum of 800 contact hours guaranteed, the English Preparatory Year can bring you up to speed in as little as two semesters.

Which skill are you looking to develop? 


Interested in pursuing a degree at one of Europe’s many worldclass universities, but in need of the required qualifications? The English for Specific Purposes Training (ESP) programmes combine the development of academic skills in the English language with field-specific knowledge, preparing you for a smooth entrance into a Bachelor-degree programme at ELTE or a university outside of Hungary. The ESP programmes will allow you to reach B1-level language proficiency (CEFR) in just one year.


Pre-Medical Programme


The Pre-Med programme prepares the student to take the entrance examination required to participate in a regular degree program at a medical university of the student’s choice. The program consists of a selection of courses related to natural sciences, such as chemistry, biology, mathematics, and a smaller portion of humanities, like history and economics. Understanding that physicians need a comprehensive understanding of disciplines marginally related to humanities, medical schools often look for students with diverse educational experiences. The program concentrates on preparing students for their further scientific studies in English. It aims to provide students with the appropriate terminology of biology, chemistry, physics and medical English. Besides the field-specific English classes, students will also attend regular English classes to improve their communicational and study skills, vital for their further studies in medical school.
