Required Post-Acceptance Forms
Upon acceptance to BSME, you will be given access to various post-acceptance forms. These forms are required for participation in the program. Please complete and submit them as soon as possible. This will give us ample time for scheduling and coordinating.
Visa / Residence Permit
US and Canadian students will not need a visa or a residence permit, since their stay in Hungary will be less than 90 days. International students must check with their home country consulates for the most current and accurate information. Please read the information provided in this link for more details.
Make sure you have a passport that is valid until the end of your planned stay in Hungary. If you need a visa, your passport must be valid for six months after the end of your stay.
Make sure you have a US (or equivalent) international health insurance that is valid in Hungary (and countries you plan to travel to) covering at least up to 40,000 USD of your health expenses, and is valid for your entire stay. Read more on Health Services.
If you use prescription medications, please take steps described on the Health Services page.
