More Hungarians Apply to University

Figures

More than 126,000 people have applied to Hungarian universities for the coming academic year, Culture and Innovation Minister János Csák said on Monday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.

The number is up from 99,000 a year earlier, Csák said.

State secretary Balázs Hankó said around one-fifth of applications for next year are for programs in engineering, the natural sciences, mathematics, or IT. Application numbers at the University of Nyíregyháza, near the border with Ukraine, are up 60%, he added.

The admissions office of Eötvös Loránd University (Elte), in the capital, got the most applications: over 17,800. Runner-up was the University of Debrecen, with close to 11,400 applications, followed by the University of Szeged with around 9,000 applications.

Applications to economics programs made up 21% of the total submitted to admissions offices, more than any other area of study.

Csák noted that the number of foreign students enrolled at Hungarian institutions of higher education now stands at over 42,000.
