The Inside Scoop from Students 
  • We loved our classes at Corvinus! Hungarian for Beginners is a #1 favorite!
  • We found the Corvinus professors to be very dedicated to teaching and to their students and with more real life experience in business than back at home.
  • We loved the mix of international and Hungarian students in our classes.
  • We found the API support excellent (including the orientation events after arrival) and are incredibly thankful for everything.
  • We found the API cultural activities and excursions really interesting.
  • We became super independent and planned a lot or our own travel all over Europe
  • We really appreciated the comfort and privacy of having a single room at the residence hall.
  • By choosing a non-English speaking country for our program, we definitely benefitted from the experience more, learned a lot, and feel more confident.
