3. ISU – International Student Union

We have many student clubs you can join once you become a student at UD, but the largest one is definitely the ISU of Debrecen, committed to gather and help international students in all aspects of their college life. They also organize various events throughout the academic year, i.e.: Fresher’s Ball, International Food Day, or Zamat Festival.

They are a group of UD students from all over the world, who work hard to make the life of all incoming freshmen as well as current students easier, their transition to Hungary smoother and their college years full of unforgettable experiences.

If you would like to join the union, get to know them better, or be updated on what’s going on with international students on at UD, please make sure to follow them on social media.
