Programmes for internationals

The National University of Public Service (NUPS) offers several opportunities for international students, practising professionals and executives including full degree and exchange programmes, summer schools or tailor-made trainings.

Full degree students

NUPS offers degree programmes at all levels for Hungarian speaking students. International students are also welcome to apply for master level and PhD programmes offered by the University.

The Faculty of Public Governance and International Studies welcomes students for the 3-semester-long International Public Service Relations MA degree programme taught in English, while the Faculty of Law Enforcement offers a joint master degree programme titled “Policing in Europe”.

Furthermore, the doctoral schools of the university accept applications to conduct full degree studies in several research areas that are connected to public administration, military sciences, military engineering or law enforcement.

There are several scholarship opportunities offered by the Hungarian government, the most popular of which is the Stipendium Hungarium governmental scholarship programme.

Exchange students

Given that Hungary is an EU member state, NUPS is actively engaged in the Erasmus+ programme through which all the faculties and doctoral schools accept exchange students from all around the world. Several students conduct exchange studies according to bilateral agreements. Besides its European partners, NUPS has partners in Israel, Kazakhstan, China, South-Africa, Egypt and Russia with whom student and staff exchange programmes were successfully fulfilled recently while the scope of partner countries and partner institutions is continuously expanding.

Tailor-made programmes

The short-cycle training programmes are designed for practising professionals and executives and are offered in several fields. These programmes are built to meet the specific requirements of customers, therefore the length or the composition and intensity can be customized along with the number of participants.
