Following the completion of their university studies, some 31,000 young Hungarians have signed up for state-sponsored courses, which will assist them in passing the language exams obligatory for obtaining their degrees, Economy Minister Mihály Varga told Hungarian news agency MTI.

The program entitled “degree-saving program” began in 2013 to provide a solution for the 22% of university graduates, nearly 5,000 students, who could not acquire their university degrees because they were missing the obligatory language exam.

The Economy Minister told MTI that 340 courses were initiated in 82 cities and towns around the country over the past month and a half.
