Requirements and Programs
Language requirements

The Preparatory Program does not require any language certificate, but having one earns you extra points when applying. We are accepting students with English knowledge equivalent to 5.0-5.5 IELTS for the September intake, 5.5-6.0 IELTS for the January intake. Level checked during online interview.

Please note:

  • For BA programs in English, besides the good high school results, an Intermediate (European B2) level English language examination certificate is the precondition of the admission.
  • Participants take the intermediate (B2) level state accredited language examination at Corvinus University, or they can choose IELTS General exam.
  • The minimum language requirement is Corvinus B2 level or IELTS 5.5.
  • Please note that for most BA programs IELTS 6.0 is required.
  • For MA or MSC the required level can be IELTS 6.5.

Dormitory information

  • It is possible to apply for a dormitory place in Tarkarét Dormitory for study period 2022/23
  • During the interview, we will ask you if you are interested in this option, and if there is a place, we will ask you to pay the dormitory fee with the tuition fee.
  • If you pay for dormitory, and after arrival, you change your mind about living there, there is no refund for the first semester. You will have the option to move out in January and get back the second semester’s fee if you notify the dorm manager, complete the moving out process and notify us.

Documents required for the application:
• Application Form
• Transcript of high school results in the last two semesters (English original or authorized translation into English)
• passport-size photo
• motivation letter (optional)

High school graduation certificate is not a must for the preparatory admission, but it has to be submitted for the BA application.

VERY IMPORTANT, please read it carefully: For the application for any BA or MA study program in Hungary the Apostilled or verified copy of your high school graduation certificate or BA degree is required. If your country is the member of the Apostille Convention, you should contact the education authority, usually the Ministry of Education to do this administration (put a stamp) on your original degree (not the translation). In countries outside the Apostille Convention, like China, two stamps are needed for the verification: one from your national education authority and another one from the Hungarian Embassy that you can get at the visa application.

Corvinus Preparatory Admission Office does not require a verified copy for the preparatory application, but you are asked to get it and bring it with you when you arrive in Hungary to start the program as it is essential for the university application, and it is much more complicated if you
must take care of it later while you are in Hungary.
