Learning vacation - Summer Universities in Hungary

This year, many Hungarian universities offer online educational programmes during the summer break in order to keep young minds sharp and provide a place for further development. In this article, we take a look at the Hungarian summer schools and summer university programmes offered.

Summer schools/universities are short-term educational programmes organised by universities outside the curriculum, with the goal of deepening the knowledge about specific topics of university students, oftentimes open for the public as well. Many of these summer courses come with ECTS credits, new professional relationships and many opportunities to develop. We collected these educational programmes with the most important details for you to pick and choose from.
