UD International Scholarship 2024

The Hungarian Government has initiated a pilot program with the objective of offering opportunities to international students who are currently not enrolled in Hungary to pursue their higher education studies in Hungary, including at the University of Debrecen.

The program's mission is to increase the number of international students in international degree programs related to natural sciences, medical and health sciences, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Moreover, the aim is to amplify the involvement of international students in professional internship programs, to facilitate their integration into the Hungarian labor market and to enrich the pool of qualified international students in Hungary.
