Academic year

The academic year in Hungary starts in September and is built up of two semesters: fall and spring semesters. Both semesters start with a registration period which is followed by the study period and an examination period afterwards.

General structure of the year:

  • 1st Semester (Fall)
    • Registration period: early September
    • Study period: early September – mid-December
    • Examination period: mid-December – end of January
  • 2nd Semester (Spring)
    • Registration period: early February
    • Study period: early February – mid-May
    • Examination period: mid-May – end of June
  • In the 1st semester (Fall) usually there is a one-week fall break in October/ November.
  • In the 2nd semester (Spring) usually there is a one-week spring break around Easter (in March or April).
  • The summer vacation lasts from the end of the 2nd semester (Spring) until the beginning of the 1st semester (Fall).
