Services

Student services

  • From enrollment to graduation, our students participate in our personalized mentoring program.  As part of the PIQ&Lead ™ Personal program, our institution provides regular mentoring and counseling services. 
  • Academic counseling for students covers the areas of student well-being, personal career development, and academic support. Each mentor works with a small group of students to act as an internal mentor and coach. All incoming students are automatically enrolled in a mentor group so that they can move on to special communities as needed.

Housing services

  • We know that one of the greatest challenges of studying abroad is to ensure safe, well-equipped accommodation for your stay. This is why for the start of your studies KJU only recommends pre-checked accommodation at our contracted partners' facilities.
  • The moment you feel comfortable enough in Budapest and feel like you know the city, you are free to choose a different accommodation if you wish, but regardless, we make sure you have a place to stay.

Medical services

Having valid health insurance during your stay in Hungary is recommended for several reasons. First and foremost, it's a must for the application of the study visa and residence permit and it is also necessary when applying for an extension. In addition, it is important since otherwise, you will not be able to receive medical care when in need, or high sums must be paid after every treatment.

Student Life

Sports facilities

  • KJU awaits students with a colorful sports palette. Those looking for active exercise will have the opportunity to play football, table tennis, badminton, basketball, tennis, teqball, teqpong, streetball and join the Kodolányi Running Team.

  • KJU ski camps have a history of more than 25 years. This family-oriented activity welcomes students, teachers, their family members, and friends. Our rector is always among the participants, too. 

Student clubs

KJU Students’ Union is working for the students and their well-being. It is a broad-based organization of members elected by the students of the university, whose main task is to represent the interests of the students and to ensure the flow of information between the students and the units of the institution.
