Péter Magyar, CEO of the Student Loan Center, said that such loans may never have been as necessary as they have been in recent months.
It is estimated that a total of 35,000-40,000 students could turn to the center this year. He added that the main task of student lending at the moment is to prevent an increase in drop-outs from higher education for financial reasons.
