Close to 40,000 foreigners study at Hungarian unis
The number of foreign nationals enrolled at Hungarian universities climbed over 38,000 in the 2019/2020 academic year, close to the 40,000 target for 2023 set by Innovation and Technology Minister László Palkovics in 2014, state secretary Tamás Schanda said on Wednesday.
The number of foreign university students has risen by two-thirds since 2013, Schanda said.
About half of foreign students enrolled in Hungary believe a diploma earned locally will be more valuable than one awarded in their home countries, he added.
