Hello Erasmus! 08. Sep. 2023

Spain was the largest participant, with Portugal, Italy and France sharing the second place, followed by Turkey. This year, students from Greece, Mexico, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan have also come to spend six months on a part-time course at the University of Debrecen (DE).

The largest number of students , 40, came again this year came to the Faculty of Medicine, but many chose the Faculty of Humanities, the Faculty of Economics, the Faculty of Pharmacy, the Faculty of Engineering and the Faculty of Science and Technology.

- From the 16th and 17th centuries, it was important for higher education in Debrecen to cultivate international relations, especially with the European Reformed sister schools, the memory of which is preserved in the glass windows of the Main Building's Lobby, showing the cities where the students of the predecessor Reformed College went on peregrinations, Orsolya Jánosy recalled the past in her welcome speech.

In her speech, the head of the International Office of the University of Debrecen stressed that Debrecen has the largest number of foreign students among Hungarian universities, with more than 7,000 students from over 120 countries studying primarily in English-language courses at the institution, which means that the newly arrived Erasmus scholarship holders have a large number of choices to choose from.

After the welcome, the guests were treated to a taste of Hungarian folklore by folk dancers and the Szeredás folk music ensemble, followed by an authentic Hungarian dinner.

The opening evening ended with a joint dance party in front of the Aula.

Naturally, the International Office supports not only the studies of the student who come to opuzr university, but also the scholarship programs of our university citizens abroad.
