I would recommend Obuda University for every student who wants to work and study at the same time because the schedule is not loaded.

Small and friendly uni
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

It's not a big faculty, that's why the teachers were friendly, they knew our name and the atmosphere was very nice. But also because of its small size, the equipments are not so special, the building's a bit old and there were many kinda useless lectures.
