Only 1/4 of Students Abroad Intend to Return to Hungary
Only a quarter of the students studying abroad say that they will definitely return to Hungary when they finish their studies, according to research conducted by financial consulting company Blochamps Capital in cooperation with the Hungarian Youth Association student organization, writes business daily Világgazdaság.
According to the results of the Youth Affluent Finance 2022 research, most of those involved choose to study abroad because of higher quality education, which does not necessarily cost much more than if they graduated from a university in Hungary.
Since joining the EU, the proportion of Hungarian students studying abroad has increased from 1.7% to 8%.
In Hungary, the number of students in higher education shows a decreasing trend. In 2005, 380,000 people participated in higher education, while in 2021, it was only 253,000.
During the same period, Hungarian students studying abroad increased from 6,300 to 20,000.
