More foreign students see value in Hungarian diploma
In seven years, the number of international students studying at Hungarian universities has increased by almost two-thirds, the majority of whom consider a Hungarian degree more valuable than the one issued in their own country, according to a survey conducted this year, writes business daily Világgazdaság.
Internationalization is a strategically important task in Hungarian higher education, as domestic institutions have to compete with more than 25,000 universities in the world.
This competition has intensified due to the coronavirus epidemic, as most student countries have begun to develop their own higher education systems vigorously, said Deputy State Secretary for Higher Education Balázs Hankó of the Ministry of Innovation and Technology.
He added that the Hungarian Rectors' Conference also plays an essential role in this, on the one hand by enabling the exchange of experiences between universities, and on the other hand by representing Hungarian higher education as a unified organization.
