4.3/5
Overall
I wish I had known...
That the ISC is geared toward exchange students, which diminishes the academic quality, while improving the party scene. Better prepared for the Hungarian mentality.

Personal recommendation
Personally, I have mixed feelings about the ISC even though I spent two years there getting a Master's degree. My two years there really made me get in touch with who I am and where I belong, which was absolutely invaluable. For most people I would recommend spending a year there at the most, but for me two years was needed to fully get the picture. Overall, my two years there helped round out my undergrad education and better prepared me for more grad school back in the States.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions. Most people I know had a great time there and the nightlife can be fun for a semester or two before it gets really old. I made some great friends (very few new Hungarian friends though) and had the best and worst times of my life there. Hungary and Hungarians were a big disappointment, but I met some cool people from all over the world.

I wish I had known...
Yes, that it is almost impossible to get information about how to get a visa and a working permission for an internship in HUngary. That you don´t have to pay for a visa because students donßt have to pay if they do a semester abroad with support of the ÖAD

DON´T - UNDRE NO CIRCUMSTANCES - ATTEND A TRIP ORGANIZED BY THE INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS UNION FROM THE TECHNICAL UNIVERSITY (JUST OPPOSITE TO THE KÖZGAZ!) THEY ASK FOR TOO MUCH MONEY, THEY CHANGE THE DESTINATIONS OF TRIPS WITHOUT YOUR KNOWLEDGE AND THEY DON´T CARE ABOUT ANYTHING THAT HAPPENS WITH YOU IN CASES OF INJURIES AND DESEASES!

It depens on what you are used to back home. As an exchange student it is not a very difficult university,we are there to get new experiance , not to see the inside of the reading room. I will recomand everybody to not read to much.

Bring your own meds from home (over the counter stuff and prescriptions) as a lot of stuff we can buy in pharmacies over the counter you need a prescription over here. Like tylenol, feminine products, stuff like that.

Improve the administrative aspect of the school. It's very disorganized and if you want to attract students from top universities, you will definitely have to make a better impression.

Overall it was an amazing experience and I highly recommend everyone to go on exchange (no matter where u go u'll have fun). Especially for North Americans, this is a once in a lifetime experience because there are so many different countries w/in hours of eachother giving you the opportunity to travel cheaply and quickly.

I really liked the university. Staff in the Faculty of Social Sciences is not that competent but with all others I had no problems. They were all very friendly and helpfull. At the moment I see myself as a Corvinus student and not as a student from my university in Vienny.

Try to travel a lot! It is cheap and there are so many wonderful places in Hungary. What I really liked is that teachers don't want high drop-out rates. If you prepare for the exams you'll also pass them. That was a nice experience for me.
