Study in Hungary
Hungarian people have been living in the heart of Europe for more than thousand years. In spite of the tough difficulties the country has had to face throughout its history, Hungary owns such values that visitors from remote countries wish to see as well. After Iceland, Hungary has the greatest surface thermal water supply in the world: the healing water of several hundreds of springs helps thousands of people regain their health. The largest fresh water lake of Central Europe is also located in Hungary.
Since the end of the 1980s, Hungary has attracted a steady stream of foreign capital, well-balanced across the various sectors of the economy. Today, there are new incentives for foreign businesses and a new direction for FDI.
Hungary is truly a land of welcome for foreign investors — and a land of opportunity. These statements are justified by the fact that thousands of foreign companies have located here and their numbers continue to increase. Hungary is a member of the European Union since 2004.
Budapest, situated right in the heart of Europe along the two banks of the River Danube, is a lively, friendly city with a continental climate. It has succeeded in adapting to the modern world while preserving its rich historic past. The city offers a wealth of entertainment and cultural activities, museums, concerts, theatres, opera as well as discos, jazz clubs, elegant shops and good food. An excellent public transport system extends all across the city, but there is also always enough taxis at your disposal.

There is a great variety of museums as well. The Budapest History Museum in the Castle area, the Hungarian National Gallery, the Hungarian National Museum and the Museum of Fine Arts are just a few of the museums that offer a great journey into Hungary’s past and present.

George Fisher-Wilson, an IBS Erasmus student wrote an article about his impressions as a student in Budapest on Huffington Post; George sees Erasmus not only as a great opportunity to “immerse yourself socially” but to spend time in a foreign country and new cultural sphere where you can gain “a new perspective on your national identity.”
