Located in the heart of Europe Hungary is a land of great contrasts that has a wealth of culture and history, complemented by a language very different from its neighbors. The country is situated in the low, flat area of the Carpathian Basin, with a landscape of hills and plains, and it features one of the largest continuous grasslands in Europe.

For the past twenty years, over 10,000 international students have attended education in Hungary. Hungary is especially popular for studies in sciences – particularly in such fields as medicine, dentistry and veterinary medicine, to name a few. These are all programs with very competitive admission in many countries - Hungary offers an accessible alternative.

Hungary's high-quality medical degrees are accepted by the World Health Organization and are directly transferable to any EU country. Schools in Hungary are increasingly offering medical degrees in both English and other foreign languages such as German to attract more foreign students. Some of the top countries from which international students come to study in Hungary are Germany, Israel, Norway, Iran, China and Canada.
