Located in the heart of Europe, Hungary is a land of great contrasts with 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 (Hungary features one of the largest continuous grasslands in Europe).

For the past twenty years, over 10,000 international students have attended higher education in Hungary. The country 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 while 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 of higher education in Hungary are increasingly offering medical degrees in both English and other foreign languages such as German in order to attract more foreign students. Some of the top countries from which international students come to Hungary are Germany, Israel, Norway, Iran, China and Canada.
