You may learn Hungarian either for private everyday use for the time you stay in Hungary or for joining a university course in Hungarian. If you choose Hungarian as the language of your studies, you will be required to prove your proficiency in Hungarian before you start your studies. Candidates have the option of learning Hungarian at the Balassi Institute, the University of Pécs and the University of Debrecen.
In addition, a one-year course is provided for those who need it as a preparatory course before they start their higher level studies in Hungarian. The Balassi Institute organizes Hungarian language courses on all levels all year round for international students.
