The increasing number of students, departments, professors and the democratically appointed leadership of the autonomous universities and colleges co-operate in the necessary development of higher education in accordance with the Bologna Statement. The Bologna experience turned attention to those questions that were put forward by the European Union as well in order to ensure the free flow of workforce and intellectual assets. Among these, the achievement of greater compatibility and comparability of the requirements and the assessment, the preservation of cultural heritage and the competitiveness of diplomas in the work market constitute as the most significant challenges. Consequently, the reform program of the past decade and the improvement of relations and co-operation of Hungarian higher education were considered with special attention to such issues. During the 1990s the number of students in Hungarian higher education increased significantly. Elite education has been replaced by mass instruction. Today, more than one-third of university age Hungarians participate in higher education. The mid-range perspective for higher education policy is to provide higher education to every second young Hungarian. Another important goal is to reform the training structure, by ensuring a multi-level training system (with multiple possible outcomes) as suggested in the Bologna Statement. The integration of the previously fragmented institutional system led to the successful establishment of multidisciplinary universities and colleges with multiple faculties serving as regional and professional intellectual centres. The credit-system will be introduced at every institution from September This should provide a more flexible training structure and greater student mobility. 23

2 These issues are especially important given the exceptionally wide range of educational options the number of majors available is approximately 4,000. A large number of students (approximately half of all admitted applicants) have the opportunity to complete their studies with the financial support of the state. Several other grants and allowances are also available (e.g., Bursa Hungarica Scholarships, student loans, social allowances based on educational achievement). The number of students participating in in-service retraining programs is also growing. This suggests that the educational structure has to develop with increasing interest in life-long learning in mind. In summary, Hungarian universities and colleges entered the 21 st century with similar challenges and development programs as those of European higher education in general. The outstanding achievements of the previous century innovations, Nobel-prizes, institutions of excellent reputation bode well for retaining quality education in the future. STRUCTURE Higher Education System Two types of institutions issue higher education diplomas in Hungary: universities (after 5-6 years of study) and colleges (after 3-4 years of study). The relatively new type of high level vocational training programs also offer practical education in two years providing competitive qualifications. Since 1993, higher education institutions offer both tuition based and state financed training. Every student can obtain one degree that is financed by the state, on the condition that they have been successfully admitted to an institution of higher education. In considering the forms of education, a number of choices are available. There are regular, correspondence, and evening courses, as well as distance education programs. 24

3 STRUCTURE Students can obtain second degrees or complete supplementary training to their existing diplomas. In addition to state universities and colleges, a number of religious and private institutions have been established. These generally offer tuition based courses (often without requiring entrance examinations for admission). Some of these institutions are subsidised by the state. This generally means free tuition for certain majors (e.g. social work training in religious universities and colleges). The capital of the country plays a significant role in higher education. Ministries, organisations dealing with higher education as well as most universities and colleges are located in Budapest. Approximately half of the students in Hungarian higher education study in the capital. The Office of the Government Commissioner for Educational Rights (Oktatási Jogok Biztosának Hivatala) 1055 Budapest, Szalay u (1) The Hungarian Accreditation Committee (Magyar Akkreditációs Bizottság) ensures the soundness of educational programs, while the quality and content of training are guarded by the Higher Education Science Council (Felsôoktatási Tudományos Tanács). The necessary requirements for introducing a new major are determined in co-operation with other ministries such as education, defence and health. From the school year of 2002/2003 most higher education institutions will also adjust to the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS). Institutions are currently negotiating the acceptance of credits. Coming to full agreement might take some time, but the goal is unanimous: completed studies and requirements should correspond to each other at various institutions, thus ensuring greater student mobility. This also can help those foreign students studying in Hungary when it comes to getting credits at their home institution for their studies abroad. The rights of students are protected by multiple organisations and government offices. In case of an injury, any participant in the education system (institution, applicant, student, parent) can turn to the Office of the Government Commissioner for Educational Rights. Possible infringement of lawful rights will be examined with the insurance of full anonymity for the complainant. In the case of a legitimate complaint, the Office will prepare a resolution proposal for the violator. This proposal is influential, but not legally binding. The National Office of Higher Education Admissions (Országos Felsôoktatási Felvételi Iroda) is responsible for the co-ordination and implementation of the admission procedures as well as for providing official information to those interested 25

12 STRUCTURE The Hungarian Academy of Sciences Count Széchenyi founded the Hungarian Academy of Sciences in the mid-19 th century in order to develop Hungarian language and science. After World War the society of respected scholars and writers was transformed into a Soviet-style academic research institution, covering the entire spectrum of academic disciplines. The central library of the Academy, as well as the libraries of the different related institutes provide good research opportunities. The Hungarian Academy of Sciences still fulfils a very important role in Hungarian academic life since it offers large research funds, and has the special privilege of nominating candidates (akadémikus) for the most distinguished academic qualification. Hungarian Academy of Sciences (Magyar Tudományos Akadémia) 1051 Budapest, Roosevelt tér 9. (1) STUDIES Education Applicants to Hungarian colleges and universities must have a secondary school certificate. In most general admission procedures, secondary school credits and the results of oral and written entrance exams are included in a score that then becomes the basis of acceptance or rejection. This latter possibility will end from 2003, all applicants will have to pass an entrance exam. Training is based primarily on a compulsory seminar and lecture system. Seminars are, in general, informal, smaller discussion groups, specialised in certain topics and involve the active participation of students. They usually conclude with an independently written paper or an examination. Lecture courses follow the classic model, held for big audiences, where students have little chance to make comments or ask questions. Attendance is not obligatory. Lecture grades are usually awarded on the basis of exams (vizsga or kollokvium), though in a few cases on the basis of a written paper or essay. 34 The most frequent timetable of an academic year is the following: autumn semester First half of September_ student and course registration Second half of September middle of December_ preparation period Second half of December_ winter holiday (however, examinations can also take place during this period) January_examination period spring semester Beginning of February_ registration Middle of February first half of May_preparation period (one week Easter Holiday at the end of March) Middle of May end of June_examination period July August_summer holiday

13 STUDIES The general use of the credit system will facilitate the recognition of courses at other higher education institutions. Exams Grading System Hungarian higher education institutions are quite exam centred. In colleges in particular grades are considered to be crucial in terms of evaluating both knowledge and ranking. The highest grade is a 5. This stands for excellent. Grade 4 is good, 3 average, and 2 satisfactory. Exams or papers graded 1 must be repeated the other grades are considered passing. Grades matter when determining scholarships and tuition. Also, high grade point averages can be important when applying for certain scholarships, social allowances of the institution or other foundation support. Research Activity Students do have opportunities to show their creativity through individual research. The oldest traditional form of organising individual student research is through student conventions (Tudományos Diákkör or TDK). The TDK-student has a consultant teacher who provides continuous guidance. Alternatively, students become involved in the teachers research work. Students awarded prizes at the institutional and TDK conventions may hope for successful scholarly careers or at the least admission to Ph.D. programmes. In every discipline, scientific student organisations have been established in order to promote individual scientific research activities. Given the strong co-operation between the higher education system and the business sector, students in such fields have other external research possibilities (primarily in the technical, agrarian and economic sectors). 35

14 STUDIES The so-called professional colleges (szakkollégium) that are organised around certain universities and maintain some amount of independence, also represent serious workshops for scientific activities. The results and developments of such colleges are published on a regular basis. Libraries Financial difficulties have had a negative effect on the present technical facilities and book collections of traditional Hungarian libraries. However, the necessary books can be obtained with some effort (with increasing difficulty as the exam period approaches). In addition to department and university libraries, we recommend that you should visit both municipal and national libraries. In Budapest there are a number of special (national) libraries, such as: National Széchényi Library (Országos Széchényi Könyvtár)_ contains every book published in the Hungarian language Budapest, Budavári Palota, F épület (1) Szabó Ervin Metropolitan Library (Fôvárosi Szabó Ervin Könyvtár)_practically every book published in Hungarian language can be found here and it also has an important foreign language collection, and two good selections on Budapest and Sociology Budapest, Szabó Ervin tér 1.

16 STUDIES Central European University, Library (Közép-Európa Egyetem Könyvtára)_ 1051 Budapest, Nádor u. 9. (1) Common Electronic Catalogue of Libraries: Hungarian Electronic Library: CERTIFICATES Diplomas To receive a university or college diploma all required curricula exams must be passed and certified. In addition to the completion of compulsory courses which differ from one institution to the other one or two language exams are also required that certify an expected level of language competence. After coursework and exams have been completed students must write and defend a thesis within the framework of a state exam. The completion of this thesis and its defence entitle the student to receive the formal diploma. Since only completed diplomas have any value in the labour market, and as they are only issued to students who have completed their state exams, the proportion of students not completing their studies is very low. The main difference between diplomas is that some jobs differentiate between college and university diplomas. In general, over the last decade, higher education degrees have earned a higher value in Hungary, which is partly due to the increasingly competitive domestic labour market. Academic honours (e.g., rite, laude and summa cum laude) that appear in diplomas are only formal, but the value of a degree does depend on the reputation of the given higher education institution. International recognition and equivalence of diplomas is based on inter-state agreements. Official recognition, however, also depends on legal regulations that are highly influenced by the local labour market and professional lobby interests. The Hungarian Equivalence and Information Centre a background office of the Ministry of Education can provide more detailed 38 Hungarian Equivalence and Information Centre (Magyar Ekvivalencia és Információs Központ) 1055 Budapest, Szalay u Budapest, Pf. 1.

17 CERTIFICATES information related to this topic. The recognition of educational content depends on the actual field. Medical, technical and agrarian degrees are usually highly valued in Europe. Doctoral Degrees The present system has been in operation for only a few years in practice it is similar to the structure of American Ph.D. programmes. Doctoral degrees can only be conferred officially by universities, after the Ph.D. candidate has completed the programme (attended the required courses and passed the exams of the accredited higher education institution). By the end of this period officially three years (though in practice more often four or five) a dissertation (thesis) must be written and defended. The Ph.D. degree is a prerequisite for college or university careers and for certain jobs. As a relic of the former degree system, the title of Candidate (C.sc.) still exists. This is an accepted equivalent to a Ph.D. Academic Doctor (D.sc.) is a title conferred by the Hungarian Academy of Sciences for a second dissertation; it was formerly a requirement for university professor positions. Medical and law institution graduates are given the title of dr.. INSTITUTES Institutional Hierarchy The basic cells of colleges and universities are the departments and institutes (tanszék and intézet) organised on the basis of the various disciplines. In general, these are independent units with a small amount of administration. The appointment of the Head of the Department is approved by the faculty or university council on the basis of the proposal of the other faculty members associated with the department. Lecturers are granted significant freedom in setting up the 39

18 INSTITUTES timetables and course schedules of their departments. Student representation in this process is direct, although in a less institutionalised form. In universities, the next level of institutional hierarchy is the faculty council. This body includes the Dean, their Deputies, Heads of Departments, professors, students delegated by the student self-government bodies, as well as the various institution administrators. The council makes higher-level decisions. The head of the faculty is the Dean, who is elected by the faculty council. He has no say over department-specific issues. Student self-governments have a highly significant representation at this level, and, if united, they can achieve their objectives on most important issues. There are various committees operating at the faculty (or institutional) level dealing with students educational, social, and disciplinary matters. Students must appeal to these committees if they have complaints. Student self-governments have a decisive role on such committees. University councils deal with general institutional policy issues and are also the venue for various lobbying efforts. Election of the Rector and voting on the university budget also fall within the competence of this body. Positions College-university staff are ranked in a traditional hierarchy, comprising elements of the French, Russian and German systems: Assistant Lecturer (tanársegéd)_a beginner, young lecturer in general, appointed mainly to conduct exercises, assist in training assignments and to hold simple seminars. Lecturer (adjunktus)_a lecturer with a doctoral degree entitled to lecture with a certain degree of independence and supervise theses. Associate Professor (docens)_a qualified, chief lecturer, sometimes they are selected to be the head of a department. Duties include holding lectures, presiding over examination committees, and supervising doctoral degrees. Can be elected head of an institution. Full Professor (university professor) (professzor or egyetemi tanár)_the highest title in higher education 40

19 INSTITUTES conferred on the most honourable professors. These professors may become the heads of departments, and have the right to conduct courses. Heads of institutions are generally elected from among them. Following admission to a Ph.D. training program, Ph.D. candidates may also assist in the training of undergraduate students. Frequently departments and faculties invite and employ visiting or part-time professors. It is also customary to confer honorary titles (honorary university professor, honorary associated professor, etc.) on those who are not full-time employees of the institution. These titles are conferred at both colleges and universities. Administration in Universities/Colleges The administrative office for students is called in Hungarian Tanulmányi Osztály (Registration Office). For foreign students, a German or English speaking student councillor is appointed. The registration office supports the work of departments and faculty councils with administrative work, registration of students, and the co-ordination of academic affairs etc. Along with student self-governments, registration offices deal with all the administrative work related to university studies: they collect grade books and theses, register applications for state exams, provide student identity cards, collect exam fees, etc. The office is valuable for all students. It even provides certificates about school attendance which are necessary when applying for a temporary residency or work permits. Admission and registration are the most important administrative tasks. These have to be completed by a designated deadline prior to each semester. Students will then receive their student grade books (index), which contain the timetable of their courses. In case of popular courses, it is advisable to inquire ahead as to whether there are available seats. The student grade book is also required during exams for recording of grades. It is equally important to obtain and validate a student identity card. This is usually possible in the Registration Office that also issues school attendance certificates necessary for work permits and application forms for financial assistance. 41

20 INSTITUTES Student self-governments are also involved in the administration of student affairs. They primarily assist in the organising and granting of social assistance and scholarships. They provide information on student career possibilities and accommodation, as well as on social programmes. Student Organisations Student interests and concerns are heard at elected bodies the so-called student self-governments, Hallgatói Önkormányzat (HÖK). These bodies have no political or trade union affiliations, and do not operate on a membership basis. Students delegate representatives by holding elections each institution has only one general student representative body. Their main task is to represent students interests in the committees of the institution. In general, their representation amounts to between a fifth and a third of these committees. Through them students gain access to information on professional requirements, they can communicate their opinions and can seek legal remedies for their grievances. In addition, the organisation of student life is carried out within the framework of the student self-governments. Student career offices and accommodation arrangements, the organisation of cultural and student community events, legal advisory services, international relations, students newspapers and clubs frequently operate under the auspices of student self-governments. They have offices in almost every institution. They also play a role in the operation of the increasingly widespread Student Counselling Offices (Diáktanácsadó Iroda). The national organisation of student self-governments, HÖOK (National Union of Students in Hungary), is the most influential and most extensive organisation representing students at the national level. They are also involved in the planning of various ministerial organisations. The HÖOK is a member of ESIB, a European association of student organisations. Although Ph.D. candidates have student status, they also have a separate national organisation, the DOSZ (Association of Hungarian Ph.D. Students). The DOSZ operates on the basis of membership support. It is the founder of π-net, the association of European and American doctoral candidate 42 Doktoranduszok Országos Szövetsége (DOSZ) (Association of Hungarian Ph.D. Students)_ 1149 Budapest, Ajtósi Dürer sor Professzorok Háza (1) Hallgatói Önkormányzatok Országos Konferenciája (HÖOK) (National Union of Students in Hungary)_ 1149 Budapest, Ajtósi Dürer sor Professzorok Háza (1) Central European Student Network 7633 Pécs, Szántó K.
