Student Exchange programme (based on inter-institutional exchange agreements)

Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME) has a wide range of bilateral agreements with universities all over the world. In the framework of Student Exchange programme BME is happy to welcome exchange students from partner universities based on valid bilateral Student Exchange agreement. BME and partner universities can generally accept one or two students per academic year, however, the exact number of participants is specified per partnership.
For applications to be valid, students need to be nominated by their home institution and students have to submit their online registration. 
Nominations by sending institutions are accepted for a full academic year (fall and spring semester) but students’ online applications and online course registration can be submitted always only for the coming one semester.
BME is planning to launch the upcoming semester face-to-face but the final decision will depend on the future coronavirus situation.
According to Government Decree 291/2020 (17 June) on travel restrictions during the pandemic preparedness period introduced by Government Decree 283/2020 (17 June), the following persons are allowed to enter Hungary without restrictions:
- Hungarian nationals,
- EU nationals and nationals of EEA member states and Switzerland (excluding UK),

- furthermore, granted through reciprocity, nationals of Serbia – based on the Decree of the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade 9/2020 (17 June)
Persons not falling under the above categories are not allowed to enter Hungary.
Please note that this regulation may change in the future but we cannot guarantee that we will be able to accept incoming students out of Europe nationals in September face to face. Please be informed that in any case, our university will provide online courses for those who were accepted by our university but cannot start their mobility in person.
