The Liszt Academy cannot provide accommodation for international students, so the students have to find their accommodation individually. The International Sub-Department, however, is doing its best to give assistance in finding an apartment that suits the needs of each student. The staff is constantly working on putting together a list of flats, which are close to the Academy and provide students with a possibility to practice, so feel free to ask them for help.
Residence permit
After your visa has expired, you will need a residence permit for your studies. Please visit the homepage of the Immigration Office of the Ministry of Internal Affairs at for details on residence permits for registered students.
Health insurance
A full coverage basic health insurance policy valid for Hungary is a prerequisite for a residence permit. Either you prove that you have a basic health insurance in your country of origin valid for Hungary as well and at least for the academic year (10 months), or you are requested to obtain medical insurance in Budapest. For a list of Hungarian health insurance companies, please consult the staff of the International Sub-Department

The library of the Academy is located in the Main Building of the Lisz Academy (8 Liszt Square). Non-degree students are required to pay a deposit of HUF 30.000 in cash when registering. This is paid back via bank transfer at the end of the school year if the student has no debts towards the library. When leaving, please ask for a certificate from the librarian and submit it at the International Sub-Department to get back the deposit.
