Alumni news - 2016-02


All international students are recommended to insure themselves in their home country. Valid health insurance for the duration of the programme is obligatory (if your health insurance card does not specifically state that it is valid for EU member states or that is valid specifically for Hungary, please ask your insurance company to supply you with an official letter to this effect as the Hungarian Immigration Authorities may need this statement when you arrive to the EU). NB: The health insurance must provide full coverage, emergency health insurance will not be accepted.

Full insurance coverage is provided for Erasmus Mundus scholarship holders by the Consortium of Master CoDe.
