One question we often receive from our prospective students is regarding the Budapest International College Ranking. Is it a good & reputable college to study at? Let’s see the answer.
Let’s quickly settle this: Budapest International College is Foundation College, so we cannot be ranked among higher education institutions (as we don’t have our own Bachelor’s and Master’s programs.) So what does BIC do?
- We are the admission office of multiple Hungarian Universities. Our team conducts the entire admissions procedure from documentation to the interview. The Universities are just signing the Final Acceptance Letter at the end of the procedure and waiting paitently for their new students to arrive.
- We also provide Foundation programs for students who need some extra boost in their skills, before starting their studies at one of our Universities. After finishing the Foundation program, you can continue your studies straight at your chosen study program.
So you see? BIC doesn’t offer own Bahchelor’s and Master’s so of course, we don’t have our own ranking either.
Then how do you know that BIC offers good quality admissions service and Foundation courses?
- Well first of all, so far 5 reputable Hungarian Universities accept our admissions and Foundation students completely. It’s not just a promise- we have an agreement & contract that states that our Universities are happy to accept anyone who BIC accepts. That’s how much they trust our judgement.
- Our Foundation professors are all extremely highly qualified & they are also teaching at various Universities. The Algebra teacher? – He’s a professor at Óbuda University. Our Physics teacher?- He’s currently doing his PhD teaching university students all the time. Programming teachers? – Developers and web designers with multiple qualification. English tutor?- She’s a language examination expert and language teachers with decades of experience.
- The curriculum is personal for each student. All our Foundation Students receive an individual and unique timetable tailored exatly for their needs. Do you need to develop your English more? – don’t worry, you’ll get more classes. Do you have issues with Physics or Discrete Math?- just take classes again to practice more.
See some testimonials from students who got admission through BIC!
Admission process(es) for any institution are usually very stressful and tiring. It is alway a question of; what is next, how to do it, and a gamble between if it is a failure or success. With BIC, there is nothing to worry, as they hold your hand through every step in your admission and visa process, erasing all the questions of; what is next, how to do it, and boosting your confidence all the way through. I really enjoyed my admission process as it was far from stressful and tiring. In fact, there's this lasting impression created in me already about the college..."they are excellent".
Each of us has the inner dream to achieve a degree from a reputed foreign university to become successful in life. BIC helped me to find the best offer for me. BIC guidelines helped me like a treasure map- especially Anett was very helpful and guided me in every path. I’m really thankful for their support.
Thanks to the BIC team, the admission process was as easy to follow and stress-free as it could be. I appreciate how well-structured everything was; for each step, I had plenty of information that answered all of my questions, including tips on how to apply for a student visa. Special thanks goes to Anett, who was proactive and super helpful with all the questions I had.
You'd think the university admission process could be tough and potentially stressful, it was no such case with BIC; I had a splendid experience, the staff is really supportive, open to help and understanding! Very glad I got to work with you.
