Application procedures for EU citizens

 

APPLICATION PROCEDURE FOR EUROPEAN UNION CITIZENS

 
When applying for our full-time Bachelor (BA) or Master (MA) studies, citizens of the European Union can apply for two different study statuses, which are:
 

state-subsidised scholarship studies

self-financed studies

 
The application deadline for the state-subsidised scholarship is mid-February each year.
 

STATE-SUBSIDISED SCHOLARSHIP STUDIES

 
Applying for this status is possible only via the Hungarian higher education application centre www.felvi.hu
 
Since all Hungarian applicants are obliged to apply via this website regardless of the University they select, the application procedure has to be started well before the deadline. Once you have registered, additional documents might be requested from you.
 
The application form and all information and requests sent to you after the registration are in a standardized, Hungarian form, so you will probably need help in translating if you do not speak fluent Hungarian.
 
Please note that we have only a small number of state-subsidised study places and that the entry examinations are highly competitive.
 
Hungarian applicants usually have at least 10-11 years of intensive practical and theoretical musical training behind them before trying to enter the Academy and are thus well acquainted with our music education system. You will be facing a large number of well prepared applicants competing for a small number of places.
 
Please note that the International Sub-Department's staff are not in the position to help applicants with the application process.
 
Please note that by enrolling in a state-subsidized program, you agree to the conditions prescribed by the Hungarian law, listed in detail on this page (in Hungarian).

POSSIBILITIES AFTER SUCCESSFUL ENTRY EXAMINATIONS

 
If your overall performance was convincing and you are offered a state-subsidised study place, the language of your study program is officially Hungarian. This will also appear in your diploma as the official language of your study program.
 
If you want to increase your chances of getting a study place, you are advised to consider applying for a self-financed study place, as well. When filling out the application form at www.felvi.hu, you have the option of indicating that you are interested in both state-subsidised and self-financed study places. If you forget to indicate this and apply for a state-subsidised place only, you might not be offered a place as a self-financed student, regardless of the results of your entry examinations.
 
After you have applied via the centralized website, please contact the Study Department of the Liszt Academy if you want to take the entrance examinations in English.
 
You can find an English language sample of the scholarship contract that you have to sign after receiving the scholarship here.

 

SELF-FINANCED STUDIES

 

If you miss the application deadline for applying throught the higher education application centre, you can still send your application for self financed studies only, to the Study Department of the Liszt Academy until 31 March (each year) for a 60 EUR application fee. You will find the application form for self-financed studies, and the list of additional documents to be submitted here.

 

EU citizens can apply for the state-subsidised scholarship every year during their studies. If you do not get the scholarship in your first year of studies, please turn to the Study Department for information about how to apply for the scholarship in subsequent years, and application deadlines.
