Dual education is a specific form of training in higher education. It involves education being delivered throughout the training period, in a system with specific provisions for the methods of training and the evaluation of the knowledge acquired.
The dual education system is a great option for a student, but it also comes with more responsibilities. For example, in addition to completing their studies as a full-time student, participants in the dual education programme also complete a regular internship at a company as a “student-employee”. As a result, they will have gained a significant amount of work experience by the end of their course.
The dual education method has been available at the Budapest Business School since 2014.
The dual education system, which initially started at one faculty, is now available in all faculties and majors. According to the curriculum, which contains specific provisions for the training period, the training methods, the classes and the assessment of the acquired knowledge, the practical training element of the course takes place at a qualified organization, within the framework defined by the Council for Dual Education.
Dual Education Administration
Applying for dual education begins by selecting a partner organization from the list of dual training places. If your recruitment into a company is successful, the partner will enter into a contract with you. An agreement between the dual partner, the university and yourself, is a prerequisite for entering into the university dual education system.
At the end of each semester, you will be required to prepare project work, which will be evaluated by your corporate mentor and university professional coordinator. You can also evaluate the partner, in order to assist the continued development of the dual education system.
At the end of dual education, the University will issue a certificate of your project assignments. This will include your project assignments and the partner and university evaluations for them.
