For prospective students

Thank you for your interest in studying at Budapest Business School (BBS).

We would like to give you the necessary information about the application procedure to Budapest Business School.

First of all, let’s see the steps of the application:

Steps of application to BBS (please read it thoroughly)

Choose the programme to which you want to apply for. The website of BBS or the Information booklet for International Students will help you to find the programme, which is the most suitable for your motivation and ambition.

You may find detailed information on degree programmes of BBS HERE!

Compile your application folder by filling and signing the application form and writing the necessary personal documents (CV, motivation letter).

Before sending your signed application form, please make sure that the following documents are also attached: 


In case of applying for bachelor’s programme:

  • The copy of the secondary school graduation certificate and its notarized English translation.
  • Documents of other previous studies (e.g. transcript of records in English). 
  • The copy of a B2 level English language proficiency certificate (e.g. IELTS, TOEFL or TOEIC).
  • A photocopy of the main page of your passport, which should be valid at least for six months calculated from the beginning of your planned studies (2021, September).
  • Medical certificate of satisfactory health condition that allows studies in a foreign country.
  • CV and motivation letter.


In case of applying for master’s programme:

  • An officially attested true copy of a BA/BSc degree certificate and its notarized English translation.
  • Documents of other previous studies (e.g. transcript of records in English). 
  • The copy of a B2 level English language proficiency certificate (e.g. IELTS, TOEFL, TOEIC).
  • A photocopy of the main page of your passport, which should be valid at least for six months calculated from the beginning of your planned studies (2021, September).
  • Medical certificate of satisfactory health condition that allows studies in a foreign country.
  • CV and motivation letter. 

Please note: before submitting your application folder, you have to pay the Application fee (150€ one-off and non-refundable fee) at the same time. (Please find the bank data on page 5.) After having transferred this amount, please do not forget to attach to your application folder the copy of the bank certificate of your payment.  

Please check that your application is complete before sending it.

Please send the bank certificate of the payment of the Application fee, your filled and signed application form with the listed documents to the following e-mail addresses:

szabo.nora@uni-bge.hu 

studyinfo@uni-bge.hu

After receiving your application folder, we will give you a feedback on the acceptance, if necessary we may ask some additional information.

In the next step, your application will be evaluated and as a part of it we might invite you for a skype interview or ask you to fill an entry examination paper or test.

The decision taken by the Evaluation Commission on your application might be “Accepted”, “Conditionally Accepted” or “Rejected”.

“Accepted” means that you are accepted to the programme you have applied for.

“Conditionally Accepted” means, you are accepted to the programme but you have to send some missing documents to meet totally the admission criteria.

This may happen in case you are just finishing the secondary school, so you will need to send us the final secondary school leaving certificate after the end of the academic year, which proves that you have successfully finished the secondary school according to the educational rules of your country.

This may also happen in case you are applying to a master’s programme but you are doing the last year of your bachelor’s study, and you have not graduated yet. In this case you will have to send us your degree certificate. 

This situation may occur in other cases, i.e. you have passed your language examination but you have not yet received from the language examination centre the language certificate. 

In both cases (“Accepted” and “Conditionally Accepted”) you may go to the next step in the application process. 

“Rejected” means you do not meet the admissions requirements due to your insufficient language proficiency or study results in the secondary school. You will be rejected as well, if the result of your entry examination paper is not satisfactory or during the skype interview, you could not convince the teacher of BBS of your ability to study at the programme. Unfortunately, in this case, you cannot go ahead with the application process. Inasmuch you are strongly determined to study at BBS, you may improve your language proficiencies and other skills, so you are more than welcome for the next intake. 

In case you receive an “Accepted” or “Conditionally Accepted” status, you will be sent a Preliminary Letter of Acceptance (PLA). Following the information given in the PLA, you have to pay the tuition fee for the first semester (Please find the fees of the programmes on page 4). After having transferred the necessary amount, please send us the copy of the bank certificate of your payment.

As soon as BBS receives the relevant fee, the final Letter of Acceptance Decision (LAD) will be issued and sent to you which allows you to apply for a study visa at the nearest Embassy or Consulate of Hungary. At the Hungarian Embassy, you will have to apply for a long - stay entry visa (period exceeding 90 days) for educational purpose. Please note, that you may only apply for programmes launched in full - time schedule.

If your status is “Conditionally Accepted”, it will be stated in the LAD, that you may only start your studies after the missing document(s) are provided.

Please contact the Embassy to get informed about all the necessary information related to the visa application.

Please inform us when you have submitted your application for study visa.

We will send you an information letter containing practical information on BBS as well as on everyday life in Budapest (transport, insurance, prices weather etc.) We will send you a “List not to forget”. You will receive the calendar of the academic year, which helps you to plan your arrival date. You will get informed about the administrative tasks you have to do after your arrival to Budapest.

Please inform us if you need help to get an accommodation and we will send you offers. As a matter of fact, there is a shortage in the free places in the dormitories of BBS, so you will have to plan to rent a room or place in an apartment or hostel.

Application deadline for citizens of non - EU countries (D type visa is required):

not later than June 30, 2021.
