  1. Transcript of Records (list of courses issued by the home institution) in English OR Hungarian
  2. Language proficiency certificate of a B2 level

    Although B2 is highly recommended, with some partner institution we agreed on B1, which means, for some students a B1-level certificate is accepted as well. Please inquire about this information from your home coordinator.

    B1 and B2-level internationally accepted English language certificates:

    Certificate of B1 or B2 knowledge issued by the home institution | TELC | ECL | Euroexam International Certificate | Cambridge [ESOL] | IELTS | BEC | ILEC | City and Guilds | Pearson Test of English (General) | LCCIEB | TOEFL IBT | TOEIC | Skills for Life | University of Michigan | International ESOL | British Council

    In case you wish to study only in Hungarian, you do not need to send a certificate.

  3. Motivation letter in English OR Hungarian.
  4. Learning Agreement

Details on available courses are found on the following website:
Please only indicate courses in your Learning Agreement which are planned to be launched in your planned study period. In case you indicate courses, which are not on the list, your Learning Agreement will be sent back to you for correction.

  1. A passport-sized photo of you (e.g., 2 x 2 inches, 51 x 51 mm)
  2. Scanned Passport/ID document (from non-EU country nationals we can only accept Passport!)

After sending all the documents and the application is successful, Károli Gáspár University will send an Acceptance Letter to the student who will be then responsible to forward it to their home institution.
