General Info

In Hungary, a growing number of students seek opportunities for further
education in the United States in programs offering a first degree as well
as in graduate-level courses. The Commission established the Fulbright
EducationUSA Advising Center in 1994 to advise Hungarian students
wishing to pursue their further education in the United States.

The center is open to the public and its services are available for
individual and group counselling (for undergraduate and graduate
students, post-doctoral fellows and researchers). The center also handles
inquiries on all aspects of United States education.

With its library of reference books, American university catalogue
collection, handouts, CD-ROMs and internet access, the EducationUSA Center
provides the most comprehensive source of information in Hungary
about U.S. higher education. Fulbright EducationUSA maintains close ties
with the American Corners in Hungary. The center offers workshops on
the American system of higher education and serves as a liaison between
American universities and the foreign relations offices of some Hungarian
