3 HUNGARY - BUDAPEST Located at around 200 m above sea level Hungary is a state of 93 thousand km² situated in Central Europe. The region is referred to as the Carpathian Basin. North to South it is 268 km and East to West it is 528 km. The terrain consists of flat land plains to the East and smaller mountains to the West. Kékestető is the highest point with 1014 m in height. The main rivers are the Danube and the Tisza, both are considered large and are conducive to ship and boat travel. The largest lake of Europe is also found here called Balaton, it is 78 km long and 14 km at its widest point, covering an area of 592 km² and is referred to by Hungarians as the "sea of Hungary". It is a summer paradise for sailing, fishing and swimming with its silky sky blue waters. Budapest, the capital of Hungary is situated along the Danube. The river divides the city into two parts. The hilly Buda is located along the right bank of the Danube, while the flat left side is called Pest. Budapest is populated with approximately 1.9 million people, roughly one fifth of the country's population. More information about Budapest, Hungary is available at: and FACULTY OF VETERINARY SCIENCE The faculty has an uninterrupted teaching record for more than two centuries (since 1787), making it thus one of the oldest veterinary schools in the world. The Faculty of Veterinary Science Szent István University Budapest is the only veterinary school in Hungary. It is a state institution supervised and financed by the Ministry of National Resources (with the co-sponsorship of the Ministry of Rural Development), and is accredited to issue the diplomas of Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (D.V.M), Master of Science (M.Sc.) in applied zoology and the postgraduate degree of Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in veterinary sciences. 3

4 Postgraduate education is also organized by the Faculty for the veterinarians on several fields of the veterinary praxis meeting the demands of the colleagues wishing to specialise themselves in a certain animal species (horse, cattle, poultry, pet animals etc.) or in a specific field of veterinary praxis (microbiologist, toxicologist, veterinary legislation expert etc.). Besides the graduate and postgraduate education, internationally highly estimated research work on practically each field of veterinary work is run by the academic stuff of the Faculty, mostly in cooperation with the support of different national and international grants. Keeping the demands of international integration and joining the European education and research community in mind, since 1989 in addition to a yearly enrolment of about 100 Hungarian students international students have been continuously enrolled in the school. A full veterinary program has been instituted and is offered in English with the pre-clinical section also in German. Currently about 450 international students are studying veterinary medicine in Budapest from all over the world. In 2001 a new Large Animal Clinic was opened in an ideal rural environment of the University Field Station area 30 km from the city. The historical campus remained the centre with the Office of the Dean, the Basic Science Departments and the new Small Animal Clinic opened in 2006, while the new Large Animal Clinic will gradually develop into a centre for farm animal and equine practices. Both sites are equally equipped with up-to-date diagnostic and therapeutic facilities and will provide increased opportunities for teaching, practical training and research. In the meantime the entire Hungarian higher education system has undergone reorganization: the formerly autonomous smaller institutions have been united into large multifaculty universities. Owing to this integration process the veterinary school is now part of the Szent István University as the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Budapest. 4

12 IMPORTANT! Attendance at lectures required The Faculty Council decided to change the Academic Rules relevant to the attendance at lectures. This change has been approved by a unanimous vote of the Council which included also the representatives of international students. Accordingly the former free attendance has been changed to a required attendance following international trends derived from the credit system. Credits are given on the basis of workload to which lectures also belong. The opinion of the Council was that the codification of free attendance is no longer compatible with the new version of the Hungarian Higher Education Act whose 2004 version omitted the paragraph on voluntary attendance. The Council left for the Departments the way and degree of control. The number of missed lectures is limited to three. Certificates of parallel study related activities will be accepted on the formula which can be downloaded from the following link: or can be obtained at the Office of Internal Relations. In case of more than three unexcused absences from a subject the semester will not be accepted. GRADING SYSTEM In the Hungarian grading system the best grade is 5 (excellent), the lowest grade is 1 (fail). ECTS grades at the Faculty of Veterinary Science, Szent István University. Equivalent ECTS Grades 5 Excellent A Excellent 4 Very Good B Very Good 3 Good C Good 2 Sufficient D/E Sufficient 1 Fail FX/F Fail 12

13 LANGUAGE COURSES Although most of the guest students join the English programme of the Faculty and study all subjects in English you may consider learning some basics in Hungarian as well. Amongst the language courses offered by the Department of Foreign Languages (building N) one of the most popular is Hungarian as a foreign language. Students can join the course at four levels: elementary, lower-intermediate, intermediate and advanced. Due to the high number of foreign students studying at our Faculty and the limited places, guest students are recommended to enrol to the course right at the beginning of the semesters. Enrolment takes place at the Department of Foreign Languages. For more info please visit: Many language schools and foreign cultural institutes organise Hungarian language courses for foreigners and EILC (Erasmus Intensive Language Courses) are offered in Hungary as well. For more detailed information on how to apply for an EILC course please visit the following website: or ask for more information at the Erasmus Office of your University. 13

CULTURAL FACILITIES There is a wide range of cultural entertainment opportunities to choose from in Budapest. There are theatrical performances and concerts of classical and light music every day, with both Hungarian artists and guests from all over the world. For more information: There are parties every Thursday at the basement of the Veterinary Science Library called the Equus Club. Grand opera and ballet are staged at the Opera House, whereas the Operetta Theatre is the place to see and hear the operettas and musicals.

Critical Mass is an international bicycling event held on 22 nd of April and 22 nd Sept every year to draw attention to the crisis caused by motor vehicles, e.g. traffic jams and environmental pollution. The Hungarian mass demonstration is one of the biggest of the world! Last, but not least we have to mention some important cultural events at the Faculty. Probably the most formal from these events is the Stork Ball organised in each November for the newly enrolled students called in local slang a stork. Another important series of events takes place usually in the springtime. It is called Equus Days with lots of fun and programmes like sport matches, carnival, parties and the so called International Day when foreign students can bring their culture a bit closer to us and present a little bit the country where they are from. 21

22 SPORTS For details about the actual sport facilities, visit the P.E. Department at building G., 1 st floor or check the website of the Foreign Student's Association (http://www.fsaunivet.com) and there is a fitness saloon at the dormitory as well. GASTRONOMY The Hungarian cuisine is a prominent feature of the Hungarian culture, just as much as the art of hospitality. Traditional dishes such as the world famous goulash (gulyás leves) are often flavoured with paprika (ground red peppers) and black pepper. Thick, heavy Hungarian sour cream called tejföl is often used to soften the dishes flavour. The famous Hungarian hot river fish soup called fisherman's soup or halászlé is usually a rich mixture of several kinds of poached fish. Other dishes are chicken paprikash, foie gras made of goose liver, pörkölt stew, and vadas (game stew with vegetable gravy and dumplings). Desserts include the iconic Dobos cake, Strudels (rétes) filled with apple, cherry, poppy seed or cottage cheese, Gundel pancake, plum dumplings (szilvás gombóc), somlói dumplings and gesztenyepüré (cooked chestnuts mashed with sugar and rum and split into crumbs, topped with whipped cream) and of course Túró Rudi a sweet chocolate bar filled with lemony cottage cheese. Palinka is a spirit native to Hungary and comes in a variety of flavours including apricot (barack) and cherry (cseresznye). However, plum (szilva) is the most popular flavour. Tokaji is the name of the wines from the region of Tokaj-Hegyalja in Hungary. The name Tokaji (which is of Protected Designation of Origin) is used for labelling wines from this wine district. And finally Zwack Unicum is a bitter, dark-coloured liqueur that can be drunk as an aperitif or after a meal, thus helping the digestion as a blend of 40 Hungarian herbs has been used to create this liqueur. 22

23 AND SOME CURIOSITIES Did you know that the safe match, the Rubik s Cube, the electric motor, the unleaded petrol, the parachute, the colour TV, the Ford Model T, the 3D microscope, the ballpoint pen, the soda-water, vitamin C and even the artificial blood was all invented by Hungarians among many other things? Only in 2010 several Guinness World Records were set or broke by Hungarians. Just to name a few of the most momentous ones: the world's largest book was completed in Hungary in March 2010, weighting kg. A 70-gigapixel panorama of Budapest became world's largest digital photograph in June (check out: The longest marathon playing basketball is 107 hours by members of the György Boronkay Technical and Grammar School.
