1 CORVINUS UNIVERSITY OF BUDAPEST, HUNGARY 2014 SPRING SEMESTER EXCHANGE REPORT Toby Lee Major: Finance and Operation Management

2 Monthly Activity Log January I arrived on Budapest on 24 th January. Corvinus assigned me a dormitory, however, I can only move in on the 2 nd February. I seek help from my exchange buddies who I met them in the last semester when they came to Hong Kong. (The exchange buddy program is a brilliant idea!). One of them kindly offer his home for me to stay before I can move in to the dormitory. Since his home is not in Budapest, (approx. 45 minutes away from Budapest) I had more chances to explore different sites and most importantly, I could experience the local Hungarian living style! (His family treated me very nice and make me feel like home!) The Orientation Day was on 27 th January. You will definitely make some friends there! After the information session, you can decide whether to join the ESN member and those parties and event organized by them. They organized a two-day trip in Eger. But I did not join it since I think I could organize my own trip in some other days. (Actually I did!) ESN would organize a lot of events throughout the whole semester. There were many festivals throughout the year, Fish Festival, Pork Festival, etc. You can find a lot of delicious food there!

3 February I finally moved to my dormitory on 2 nd February. I was the lucky one since I got the Raday Street dormitory which is the newest, the closest to school and the best one. Originally I had to share the bathroom with guys, but after I told the director of the dormitory, he considered my concern (and maybe also the cultural difference) and allowed me to change my room. The room condition was quite satisfied, there are common rooms, gym room, and also kitchens and toilets in each floor. The first day of school is on 3 rd February. I felt good and excited about it. I met some Hungarian friends in class and we became good friends and hanged out many times during my whole exchange period. The early February you will definitely find many parties and events which most of them are organized by ESN. I strongly advise you to join at least some of them. I did some travelling during February including Slovakia, Eger, Austria and Moacher. (There was a Spring Festival over there!). Party Time!!!

4 March Mid-term came during the mid of March. You would know the exact date on that first date of class or in Moodles. (LMES of UST). Better prepared it properly since they are super easy and it contains quite a lot of percentage of the whole results. Besides that, you can fully enjoy your travel! I did a lot of travel during this month, including Czechoslovakia, Poland and Turkey. I went to Turkey to visit my friend who was exchanging there and I truly love that trip! Turkey is so amazing and I would advise you not only go to Istanbul but also the other area in Turkey. April Lots of presentations and projects would be due on April. But I still found time to manage two of my most memorable trips London and Netherland.

5 I truly love these two country, especially Netherland. I was so lucky to join their King s Day, which is their national day and everyone would dress up orange to celebrate that day. Dress up everyone!! May May was a pretty tough month since I had to do my revision for the final exams and also planned for my 25 days trip in Europe. The semester ended at the middle of June so I booked the returned ticket for it at the

6 very beginning. However, exams for UG students would be finished around middle of May. That s why I had my one month trip! I went to Spain, Italy, France and Germany in these 25 days. However, I had to tell you that it would be a very tough trip since the cheap airline would only allow you to take a baggage. That s mean you have to carry your necessities in one backpack! (Some airline don t even allow you to carry your handbag) I got sick at the middle of the trip. So always remember to bring your medicine when you go on travel. The last day school, she is the professor of Film and History. Super nice! June I reserved three days to pack and also to visit my buddy s family once again before going back to Hong Kong. It was really sad for me to say goodbye, especially you don t even know whether you would see your friends and family there again. I can never forget the time when I was living in Budapest my second home. <3

7 General Exchange Information 1) Visa Procedures Visa is not required for people holding a HK passport to stay in Budapest, but obtaining a residence permit within 30 days of arrival is required. The school will send you an informing you on what you need to do. Below is the list for required documentaries: - Two passport photos - Corvinus Student ID card - Passport and its copy - School Attendance form - Form for non-eu/eea citizens (it will be attached in the ) - Accommodation reporting form (you will get it on the orientation day / in the International Office) - Original proprietorship register and its copy (in case you are not living in the dorm) - Lease contract (ditto) - Bank account statement (official certification from your bank about the sum on your account that covers all your expense during your stay in Budapest; it can be your own bank account or one of your parents ) and its copy - Health insurance and its copy

8 - Charge of the process is HUF that must be paid off in fee stamps (available at any post offices) Direction to the immigration office: -Take tram #47/49 to MorixzZsigmondKorter -Take #33 bus to Hengermalomutca 2) Accommodation There are two dorms available, one in Raday utca (the new one), one in Kinizsi utca (the old one). The dorms are around HKD500/months, including utility fee. I was assigned with the one in Raday utca. I am satisfied with the condition. Every two rooms will share one bathroom. Each floor share one kitchen. 3) Orientation Activities Before the semester began; the ESN will invite you into a Facebook group for all the exchange students in that semester. Orientation Day will be held in late January and more and more activities will be held throughout the semester.

9 4) Course Registration You will receive from the university about the registration in Nov. The registration period begins in late-dec; make sure you mark it down on your calendar because places are filled up really fast. If you cannot get into the courses you want, try to send an to the professor for help. The Courses I took: Tourism Marketing and Management Marketing Elective Service Marketing Communication Cross Culture History of Modern Europe Interesting; some company visiting would be organized during the semester The content is so easy and similar to MARK2120 in UST. Fair. But not very useful though. My favorite course! Interesting and inspiring. The professor is so nice and it is easy to follow. Quite useful especially when you travel around European countries since you will learn a lot about their history backgrounds. Quite tough since you need to read the required readings and

10 Film and History hand in your summaries every week. Interesting and easy. The professor is so nice and she will try her best to help you if you have any problems. 5) Safety It is very safe to stay in Hungary. But be careful when you are in trams/bus/metros. There might be pickpocketing. My friends and I did not experience any safety problem in Hungary. So relax but be awarded! 6) Food I spent some time in adapting the eating habits in Europe. But after that I find that I could not stop eating like European! E.g. eat ham and sausage without cooking it, drink tape water, etc. It is easy to find cheap and nice diners all around Budapest. You will be surprised by the low price but good quality restaurants there! The Traditional Hungarian Goulash Soup

11 7) Transportation When you get your student ID card, you can go to any metro stations to buy a student monthly pass at 3850HUF. (Around 150 HKD). With this pass, you can take most of the transportation within Budapest. Do not try to be a fare-dodger, because you will never success in Budapest. (Especially when you take Metro!!!) 8) Communication Most of Hungarians cannot speak English. You will not find any difficulty in school, but communicating with Hungarians in other places is another story. One big advice is to translate the thing you want to buy from English to Hungarian before you do any shopping and write those words on a paper. If you are interested, you may take the Hungarian for beginner course in school. It quite useful and it will help you to start a conversation with the locals. 9) Cost & Expense Item HKD Airline Ticket 9500 Transportations 800 Rent 2500 Living Expenses 22000

12 Travelling cost Insurance 1600 Total Items to bring Passport Passport photo International student ID ATM card (Citibank card is recommended because no transaction fee is needed and there is one Citibank ATM near school) Winter & Summer clothes Adapters Medicines Swimming suit for thermal bath You basically can buy everything you need in Budapest; hence, you may want to save some spaces in your suitcase for your souvenirs. If more information is needed, get my contact from SBM Exchange Team by ing at

13 Budapest is definitely the best place for exchange if you are on a budget and expect to experience European life style. There is no word to describe the night view, night life (much better than in HK), food, people right there. Hope you can find its beauty as I did! GOOD LUCK! when we were in Lake Balaton!
