Preparatory Programs based at the Faculty of Social Sciences and International Relations

Preparatory Program for International Participants

9 months from 14 October 2019 to 14 July 2020

Application deadline: 26 August, 2019

The complex Preparatory Program of Corvinus University of Budapest (PPCUB) prepares participants, future students of Corvinus University for admission and high performance expected in academic programs offered by the University. PPCUB covers intensive English language training and optional Hungarian language, as well as specialized professional preparation according to the BA or MA study choice, as well as other supplementary services, like tutoring, mentoring and counseling. We ensure a culturally and socially beneficial study period in Hungary.

Please consider that Corvinus University is a higher education institution with high international prestige and accordingly high admission scores for its most popular study programs in Economics, Business and International Relations. Therefore, only very good secondary school results can make the application for BA study programs realistic. For BA programs in English, besides the good high school results, an Intermediate (European B2) level English language examination certificate is the precondition of the admission.

The program is tailored to the specific needs of the participants in the group and prepares them for the admission requirements. The completion of the Preparatory Program highly contributes to the knowledge and skills of the participant to satisfy the admission requirements, but does not replace the official application procedure, and the admission is competitive. Participants take the intermediate (B2) level state accredited language examination at Corvinus University, or they can choose IELTS General exam. The minimum language requirement is Corvinus B2 level or IELTS 5.5, but please note that for most BA programs IELTS 6.0 is required, while for MA or MSC the required level can be IELTS 6.5. Applicants for BA studies in Business and Economics write the Math test in May.
