College, uni applications increase 11% in Hungary
Around 102,000 people have applied to study at institutions of higher education in Hungary in the autumn semester, 11% more than a year earlier, state secretary for tertiary education József Bódis said on public television late Thursday.
"The prestige of the diploma has grown," Bódis said on news channel M1 ahead of the announcement of point thresholds for university admissions.
He said exact figures on the number of new foreign students enrolling in Hungary are not yet available, but added that more than 38,000 are enrolled at local schools at present and that number is set to increase.
