Why Hungary and why the Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship? Read the story of Yernar from Kazakhstan, who started his academic studies in Tourism in Hungary after earning the Scholarship:
“Two years ago I graduated from high school and was awarded a fully funded scholarship provided by Hungarian government. When I decided to study in Hungary, I made a list of advantages of studying in this country. To mention only some of them briefly:
· We get the chance to study free of charge at the most well-known universities of Hungary
