ESN / Mentor system


Faculty mentors

Our faculty offers help and support through our mentor/buddy system. They are students of our faculty as well, therefore have a great insight on how things work. Have a look at their website to get to know them more.

Each incoming Erasmus+ student can request a mentor (when doing their registration) who will contact them via email, Facebook, or WhatsApp even before they even arrived in Budapest.

These students can help you with academic matters, you can turn to them if you have any problems like finding something in the city etc. They also are responsible for any activities, programmes organized in our faculty so make sure to follow their news.

If you have any questions to our mentor students, please make sure to contact our current head mentor László TÓTH via email.

Erasmus+ Student Network (ESN)

The above-mentioned mentor system is part of the university’s ESN organization to who you can also turn to if you have any questions. You can find more about them on the following WEBSITE.

The ESN uses an app called “Papaya” that we advise you to check out and download on your phone. Available for both iOS and Android. Check them out HERE.

As an Erasmus+ student you are entitled to get an ESN Card. This costs 4.000 HUF (around 10€) and you can use it to get many discounts at different partner organizations. You can find more information about it HERE.

In case you have any questions to the ESN organizations, you can contact them via email.

Every international student studying abroad with the Erasmus+ programme should have the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) in their possession. In case of any health-related issues we advise you to contact your insurance company for guidance before you venture into hospitals or visit doctors.

If you do not have insurance company to call, we advise you to check your local health centre that is designated to the district you are living in in Budapest (you can check the district number in the ZIP code given to your Hungarian address – for example in 1126 the two middle number indicates the district).

On the following website you can find addresses to general GPs and state-funded dentists in each district.

When visiting a health facility always have your ID and EHIC with you!
