University Foundation Programs

At Budapest International College, we provide you with University Foundation programs prior to starting your studies one of our partner universities.

A Foundation program is 

  • strongly advised if you have not developed confidence in Maths or you have not gained sufficient education in Maths-related subjects during your high school studies.
  • compulsory if you do not meet the requirements of the university you are applying to and you do not pass the online Maths test as part of the admission process

Please note: as of now, all BIC students must continue their education at one of our partner universities, we do not provide standalone preparatory or foundation programs. All Conditional and Final acceptance letters are signed by the respective university, which makes you eligible for a study visa. In case you decide not to continue your studies at the respective BIC partner university, your residence permit will be revoked and you must leave Hungary immediately.

University Foundation Program – Professional Track (Two semesters)

Professional Foundation programs are designed for you, if you wish to study engineering, IT or science at one of our partner universities, but your professional skills (Math, IT, Physics etc.) are not yet on a level to start a university program. Our admission staff will evaluate your eligibility for Bachelor’s level studies during the online admission interview and Math test. If you need to improve your skills before starting the Bachelor’s program, they will guide you to the Professional Foundation program for 1 or 2 semesters.

This is a crucial step before starting university, as engineering, IT and science programs are extremely advanced, and require a high level of professional preparedness. Don’t worry though; our professors have a long experience in introducing you to even the most complicated tech skills, thus you will start your university years full of confidence.

University Foundation Program – English Track (Two semesters)

All BIC partner programs are taught in English, thus you need at least a B2 level of English. In case our admission staff decides that your command of English is not enough to start the Bachelor’s program straight away, you need to pass a 1-or 2- semester long English language preparatory program at BIC before joining your chosen study program.

During the preparatory semester(s), you will attend English, professional English, European culture and elective classes, where the main goal is to improve your general preparedness for studying engineering, IT or science in Europe. Our professors are all helpful and supportive English and culture teachers, who will help you obtain the necessary skills in a short amount of time. We will make sure that your reading, writing and speaking skills all improve and you can be confident in studying even complicated subjects in English.
