Academic Program

TOTAL CREDIT HOURS SEMESTER

12 – 15 semester credits

API students who choose to study abroad in Budapest complete their classes within the International Study Programs (ISP) department of the Corvinus University of Budapest.

Students can specialize in international business courses such as marketing, finance, and economics, or choose from a variety of humanities courses such as law, political science, psychology, and more. All courses, with the exception of Hungarian, are offered in English.

All students who have not previously studied Hungarian are required to take a Hungarian language course. Students are automatically placed into a beginning level class. Students who have previously studied Hungarian should contact the API office. Language courses are taught in Hungarian and are worth 3 semester credits; all other courses are taught in English and are worth 1.5 to 3 semester credits. The courses are designed for American and other international students. Students who wish to take more than 15 semester credits may do so for an additional fee.

TANDEM PARTNERS PROGRAM AND THE “AMERICAN CORNER”

API students in Budapest have the exciting opportunity to participate in the Tandem Partners Program. Corvinus University’s Tandem Partners Program facilitates intercultural exchange by matching full-time Hungarian studentswith recently arrived study abroad students. It is a program with mutual benefits! The local Hungarian students are eager to share the Budapest they know so well with their API Tandem Partner, and the API students are encouraged to integrate with local students and learn more about Hungarian life, both inside and out of the university setting.

With help from the U.S. Embassy, Corvinus University has also established an “American Corner” – a center on campus where students can go for academic support, study/computer areas, and American-style entertainment.

TRANSCRIPTS

API students will receive a transcript from the Corvinus University of Budapest upon completion of their program.
