The National University of Public Service has gained great popularity at the international level with its fall semester opening with 76 incoming students from all around the world. The students were greeted with the traditional “Welcome Day” ceremony on 15 September in the Assembly Hall of the Ludovika Campus. The international students were welcomed by Prof. Dr. Norbert Kis, Vice-Rector for Continuing Education and International Affairs, as well by several Deans and Vice-Deans from NUPS’ faculties.

The domestic appreciation of NUPS is further enhanced by the increasing level of interest in its programmes at the international level. While most incoming students arrive through the Erasmus+ Programme, an increasing number of students start their MA and PhD studies at NUPS based on the Stipendium Hungaricum Scholarship Programme or their respective individual self-financing.

This semester 52 exchange students have arrived from Europe via the Erasmus+ Programme with Turkey remaining the main sending country, although this year both Germany and France have stepped forward to second place in this regard. Furthermore, 24 students have come from non European countries, representing several nationalities from Africa and Asia. The list of sending countries includes Egypt, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kazakhstan, Mongolia, India, China and Russia.

NUPS has reached remarkable achievements in Hungary in Erasmus+ international credit mobility projects and is currently among the leading universities receiving support for mobility beyond Europe. Consequently, and due to the national Stipendium Hungaricum Scholarship, the ratio of international students at NUPS is continuously growing, just as the scope of sending countries and the ratio of incoming students from non European countries. An integral part of NUPS’ internationalisation efforts is to have these students actively engaged in university life. Accordingly, both central administration, faculty and student organizations strive for a quicker and more efficient integration process as well as for more available services.

The second Hungarian-Latin American Forum was held in October 2015 in Budapest. The grand opening and the programmes of the educational panel took place at the Ludovika Campus of the National University of Public Service. First to speak at the ceremony was László Palkovics, Minister of State for Higher Education, who greeted all the participants and stressed the need of a common language serving as basis for understanding. He welcomed the fact that there are more and more institutions in Hungary offering Spanish courses, dealing with the language at primary-, secondary-school and academic levels. As the strengthening of Portuguese is expected in the future, there are high hopes for the launch of a dedicated Latin-American master programme. Mr. Palkovics added that scholarship programmes, such as Stipendium Hungaricum, play a key role in the internationalization of the higher education. Hungarian students have the chance now to relocate in Brasil, Chile, Costa Rica or Uruguay, but there are negotiations with the Republic of Ecuador and Argentina as well.
Dr. József Pálinkás, president of the National Research, Development and Innovation Office was the second in line to speak, addressing issues of research and development. Talking about the primacy of science, he stressed the fact that scientific activity is inevitably borderless by ways of finding bridges over geographical distances. What is more, the cooperation of scientists and the dedicated mobility programmes do not only further the areas of expertise, but affect the national economies as well. According to him, effective R&D is central to a successful industry. At the moment bilateral agreements from the Latin American region involve Argentina, the Republic of Ecuador and Mexico.
In his speech, Dr. József Bódis, president of the Hungarian Rector’s Conference, concentrated on internationalization as one of today’s hot topics. He said that Hungary is already receiving a large number of foreign students at its universities, but new opportunities of cooperation are sought-for aiming for further opening. The cooperation of universities generally lead to positive results, one of them being the relaunch of the Hungarian courses at the University of Sao-Paolo as supported by the University of Pécs, while the negotiations continue with the University of Havana and Buenos Aires as well.
Prof. dr. András Patyi, rector of the National University of Public Service said that NUPS is a committed supporter of the opening policy, and maintains a partnership with many universities and research institutes. For Central European higher education institutions Latin America may seem distant at the first glance, but the universities of the countries are bound by the need to preserve and distribute the academic knowledge. With its own courses, the Erasmus and the Stipendium Hungaricum mobility programmes, the National University of Public Service aims at being a key player on the international academic field.

The National University of Public Service (NUPS) in cooperation with the Corvinus University of Budapest (BCE) organized an international Erasmus Staff Week hosting administrators and lecturers of various higher educational institutions from 11 countries in Budapest between the 24th and 26th of September.

The three-day event’s aim was to provide a framework for intense discussions on contemporary issues of international mobility and to exchange the best practices of participating institutions. In addition to the 15 international guests from the UK, Germany, Greece, Italy, Lithuania, Portugal, Romania and Slovakia, programme and workshop participants included representatives from the institutes and faculties of NUPS and BCE as well.

The event was officially opened by Dr. Norbert Kis, Vice-Rector for Continuing Education and International Affairs at NUPS, while BCE was represented by Erzsébet Veress, Head of the International Office. Introductory presentations of the hosting nation were provided by Szabolcs Bokodi from the Tempus Public Foundation, dr. György Hajnal from the Faculty of Economics at BCE and the representatives of NUPS’ three faculties. The visitors’ introduction was held in Hotel Gellért where interesting presentations provided excellent topics for discussion.

The second day’s programme included workshops moderated by Tamás Kowalik from the Faculty of Public Administration at NUPS. Participants’ efforts were focused on identifying related challenges that have been affecting their respective institutions and on analyzing these issues using the Action Learning method. Furthermore, in the third day’s final workshop Dr. Lóránt Horáth from the Faculty of Law Enforcement at NUPS introduced the participants to the Pain&Gain Matrix usually applied within the private sector thus providing a unique approach to the subject of mobility. Since participants came from various institutions with different size and background, various experiences were brought up ranging from general problems to special cases and unique solutions.

In addition to these programmes, international guests of the university were invited to other events as well including an evening boat cruise on the Danube. In fact, the Erasmus Staff Week was not only successful from a professional point of view but proved to be a great event to create friendships.

The International Relations Office of NUPS is most delighted to receive positive feedbacks from our guests and is looking forward to hosting the next similar event thereby carrying forth our university’s good reputation across Europe.
