* An Msc degree is a requirement for enrolling in PhD studies. There is,
however, a similar stipend available for students of all levels wishing to
study in Hungary. For our university's MSc program see here:
Talented studends with a BSc degree are encouraged to apply this way, but
note that the value of the scholarship in this case is much lower, HUF 40
460 (cca 135 EUR) per month. This amount can be approximately doubled from
our grant, which should be enough to meet the basic expenses, but usually
there are also teaching opportunities to further increase students' income,
if needed.
