Study Programmes

Information for students concerning the 2021-2022 academic year

Starting from September 2021 we plan to fully return to in-person teaching. As health, safety and well-being of our staff and students will remain our highest priority we may be opting for a hybrid mode of teaching, which will include a mix of offline and online learning in an optimum combination.

As a formal requirement, all our full-time students enrolled in one of our courses (BA, MA or non-degree), are expected to live in Kecskemét during the academic year. This requirement has been set in order to ensure that students’ time spent with us is as rewarding and fulfilling as possible.

Part-time students of the non-degree study programme should contact the Registrar’s office concerning the residence requirement.

We will be offering online classes separate from our BA, MA and non-degree programmes. These online classes will be available in the form of live remote sessions. Students applying for these sessions will be exempt from the residence requirement.
