International Schools in Hungary
The International Baccalaureate Organizations Diploma Programme
was created in 1968. It is a demanding pre-university course of study
that leads to examinations. It is designed for highly motivated secondary
school students aged 16 to 19. The programme has earned a reputation for
rigorous assessment, giving IB diploma holders access to the worlds
leading universities. The Diploma Programmes grading system is criterion-referenced,
which means that each students performance is measured against well-defined
levels of achievement. These are consistent from one examination session
to the next and are applied equally to all schools.The IBO has shown,
over the course of 30 years, that students are well prepared for university
work. They are accepted by universities in more than 110 countries.
Application to University
According to the LXXX/1993 Act on Higher Education, institutions of higher
education are entitled to determine their own requirements of admission.
As a result, the Ministry of Education has no right to prescribe exemption
from entrance examinations.
Institutions of higher education are fully autonomous in Hungary and as a result, the Ministry of Education has no right to influence their decision-making. Students are recommended to contact individual institutions in this matter.
