API in Budapest, Hungary: International Business and Humanities
API students complete their classes within the International Study Programs (ISP) department of the Corvinus University of Budapest. All students who have not previously studied Hungarian are required to take a Hungarian language course. Students are automatically placed into a beginning level class. Students who have previously studied Hungarian should contact the API office. Language courses are taught in Hungarian and are worth 3 semester credits; all other courses are taught in English and are worth 1.5 to 3 semester credits. The courses are designed for American and other international students. Students who wish to take more than 15 semester credits may do so for an additional fee. API students are required to pre-register for courses prior to arrival, and official registration takes place on-site. Students are asked to indicate their choices in order of preference on the application form. NOTE: The course selection is subject to change and enrollment in specific courses can only be guaranteed upon formal registration at the university. Some courses may require a minimum enrollment, and not all courses are offered each semester. Some courses may have prerequisites. In these cases, equivalent coursework and/or experience may be considered. API recommends that students obtain pre-approval for all of their course selections and alternates prior to departure. Some classes may fill early. The sooner students apply, the better the chance at enrolling in their preferred classes.
