Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE) offers a variety of courses in English. To view courses in English offered to international students, visit the Eötvös Loránd Course Listing homepage, then select your department (faculty). If there are courses available in English, there will be a link to a list.

Previously equated courses can be found here: ELTE - Previously Equated Coursework

Students can live in university residences or private housing. Three student dormitories are available to international students, however this housing is not guaranteed and in limited supply.
Because student housing is not guaranteed and is in limited supply, many students opt to rent and share flats or apartments in Budapest. ELTE’s Housing Office will assist students in finding the right accommodation.
