The application process for the University Programme of Mathias Corvinus Collegium (MCC) has commenced, welcoming first-year university students.
The institution’s University Programme is available not only in Budapest but also in Debrecen, Győr, Miskolc, Pécs, and Szeged, as stated in the announcement.
Applications for the training in Budapest are accepted until 17 March, while for the training in regional centres, the deadline is 14 April. The institution awaits applications from students who will complete their first university year in the spring semester of the 2023/2024 academic year and who have full-time student status at a higher education institution in the given region.
It was noted that admitted students to the Law, Economics, MCC-Mindset Psychology, Media, International Relations, Social and Historical Sciences Schools, operating within the institution, can join a motivating community and gain international experience.
MCC, which has been around for 28 years, provides free tutoring and mentoring for the most talented Hungarian youths, even beyond the country’s borders.
The MCC University Programme is unique in Europe, offering small-group, personalized training covering multiple disciplines, complementing traditional higher education in Hungary. The statement emphasized that many of their students have been MCC learners since primary school, thus participating in the institution’s entire training spectrum. For them, the MCC journey has provided not only professional knowledge but also a cohesive community and friendships.
There has been an increasing number of applicants for the University Programme in recent times, with over 600 university students currently studying at MCC.
Their programmes are available in 17 locations across Hungary and in nine settlements abroad. The aim of MCC is to ensure that young people’s education depends not on their financial situation but solely on their abilities and to enable Hungarian students to apply their deepened knowledge gained abroad for the benefit of the country and their immediate environment. Therefore, the training is free of charge for admitted students.
Students of the University Programme can also gain international experience through MCC’s talent development programme, which supports them with international scholarships. In addition to continuing their studies at the world’s most prestigious universities, students can also participate in conferences and research programmes. Among other opportunities, they can familiarize themselves with EU institutions and decision-making processes with the help of MCC’s Brussels office.
The statement highlighted that students can pursue summer university studies in cities such as Berlin, Vienna, Oxford, Cambridge, or at Quinnipiac University in the United States.
