Dear Student,

Welcome to the webpage of the National Union of Students in Hungary’s (HÖOK) Stipendium Hungaricum Mentor Network.

The network’s aim is to assist the higher educational integration of freshman students that are coming to Hungary with Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship by providing a mentor pairs to them. The mentors' responsibility is to assist their mentees' administrative and educational tasks and to help them in getting used to Hungarian transportation, culture and norms. These mentors always attend the same university as their mentees and are there for them to provide help with their problems. The partner institutions are the following:

  • Budapest Corvinus University
  • Budapest Business School
  • Budapest University of Technology and Economics
  • Eötvös Loránd University
  • Szent István University
  • Semmelweis University
  • University of Debrecen
  • University of Miskolc
  • University of Pécs
  • Eszterházy Károly University 
  • Széchenyi István University
  • Kaposvár University
  • Óbuda University

One of our network's aim is to organise several cultural and touristic programmes for its members as well to make the students' stay in Hungary pleasant and to make sure they get familiar with as many of the country’s values as possible. Each event organised by the Network is free for students.

Due to the current emergency situation caused by the Coronavirus, the network had to change its normal operation as well. The trainings and the cultural programmes are being transformed into an online format at least until the end of October.  

  • There will be trainings available online, on this page. The topics of the trainings are the following: learning methodology, intercultural communication, time management and financial management.
  • Further cultural and e-learning materials are prepared about Hungary's national holidays, history, significant figures in enternatinment industry, Nobel-prize winners, literature, history of film and inventors

After watching each video, students can do some tests and quizes to get some points. The ones who get the most points receive valuable gifts.

For more information please check the subpage "Abouts us".

If you are a freshman Stipendium Hungaricum student and would like to become a member of our team and experience the cultural diversity of Hungary, complete the registration.

We hope to see you soon
