Dear Scholarship Holder Student!
Congratulations on your acceptance at our university and scholarship awarded status! In the following letter, we are sending you information about the conditions for entering Hungary and about the start of the semester.
The semester will start on Monday, 31st of August, with the registration week. The education will continue in a hybrid form: the lectures will be held online, the seminars/laboratory practices will be held in smaller groups on campus.
In the case if you cannot travel to Hungary, you will have the possibility to register and follow the lectures online and attend the seminars later on. Please be informed that the payment of scholarship cannot be transfered for the month(s) when you are not in Hungary, students only will be entitled for scholarship payment from the month of arrival, as this amount is for the expenses of living in Hungary.
If you can travel to Hungary, please read carefully the following measures concerning the Hungarian entry requirements during the Covid-19 pandemic period.
Please keep yourself updated about the changes in these measures. Countries have been listed by color code, traveling from yellow and red coded countries fall under specific measures. The color coded list of countries can be found here: https://konzuliszolgalat.kormany.hu/download/a/53/a2000/Orszaglista200722.pdf

Please note: arrangement and costs of quarantine and 2 tests have to be done by the student, because the university cannot provide them. The costs of the tests are cca 2*100 Euros. At arrival the border police checks the foreign nationals and in case of quarantine obligations, have to fill a form, where have to provide the address of previously arranged accommodation for spending the quarantine - providing the address of university dormitories is strictly forbidden! If the police will take you to the dormitory as quaratine address, you can not go in and without accommodation, you can be dismissed from the country and be banned from entry to the EU for 3 years.
Dormitory: dormitory place can be reserved only for those who filled the application and got accepted- these are under progress- and moving in to the dormitory is only possible - even in the case of exemption of quarantine for entering Hungary - with 2 negative PCR tests, done in Hungary in one of the following locations: https://www.nnk.gov.hu/index.php/mintavetel-celjabol-felkeresheto-intezmenyek
If you do not need dormitory place, please still write this in the application form, and you need to arrange your accommodation for yourself. In this case you still need to fulfill the criteria for entering and living in Hungary, on the costs of the student.
These measures are for the common safety of everyone. Thank you for your cooperation - as our colleagues will inform you also about any new changes in the restrictions.
