Exchange students

  • Exchange students remain enrolled at their home university while spending a few months to a full academic year at PPCU Faculty of Information Technology and Bionics, either within the framework of the Erasmus+ program or an exchange agreement at faculty level between their home university and PPCU.
  • You will only be accepted as an exchange student if your home university has an exchange agreement with PPCU Faculty of Information Technology and Bionics in your field of study.
  • Two of our MSc programe (Computer Engineering, Info-Bionics Engineering) are in English and the Faculty provides several courses at BSc level in the fall semester also. In the Medical Biotechnology MSc program, courses are also available in English, provided that there is a substantial interest from incoming exchange students for a special course. Most of our professors have a good command of English, and a lot of them also speak other languages as well. Therefore, we strongly advise interested students considering to study at our Faculty but not speaking any Hungarian to get in touch with the International Relations Office at a very early stage, to be able to discuss needs and possibilities, before handing in the actual application.
  • You may write your thesis as part of your Erasmus+ mobility period. For this, you need to have a thesis advisor from PPCU as well. Please specify the name of the chosen PPCU professor in your Learning Agreement (and the thesis title as well, if possible). Please note that your thesis project cannot be accepted for your mobility if you do not have a PPCU advisor. We recommend you to turn to your supervisor at your home university who can hopefully link you with one of our professors competent in your specific field of interest. However, if you have difficulty in finding an academic advisor, you may address our International Office as well.
