  • 1. Hungarian tertiary education system Tertiary educational attendance has grown rapidly over the years both in Hungary and in the more developed countries, but the gap between them has remained. Although there is a rise in the number of university students in Hungary there are big differences between the different regions of the country. The Education Ministers from 29 European countries decided to harmonise and unify their Higher Education. It has resulted in the Bologna Process which currently has 47 participating countries among them Hungary.The aim was to make an easily comparable system. A Higher Education system which is based on three main cycles: bachelor, master and doctor. They wanted to make it more mobile, travelling to abroad to study is available. Admissions to tertiary institutions To get into a higher education institutions you must successfully pass the upper secondary school leaving examination, called mature exam. They can do advanced or normal level exams from the courses. Admission is decided according to a score system which is made up of the secondary school leaving examination results and the secondary school performance of the students. Higher education institutions may offer state funded and fee-paying places for applicants. The number of state funded places determined by the government every year. Bachelor and Master programmes Bachelor: BA/BSc programmes of 6 to 8 semesters (ISCED 5A, 180-240 ECTS credits) lead to a first degree Master: Master level programmes (ISCED 5A, 60-120 ECTS credits) of another 2 to 4 semesters require a first degree as admission criterion. The pre-requisite to entering doctoral programmes (ISCED 6) is a MA/MSc degree. There are a few fields of tertiary education (e.g. law and medical studies) where undivided long programmes remain the standard form of study (10 to 12 semesters, 300-360 ECTS credits) leading to a first degree but equivalent to a MA/MSc degree. Advanced vocational programmes Short cycle advanced vocational programmes ( 120 ECTS credits) are relatively new in the Hungarian education system. These programmes can be provided both by higher education institutions and upper secondary schools. These programmes lead to an advanced vocational qualification but does not give a degree.
