We are here for you!
Going to university is a great step and every student has the same questions: Will I fit in? Will I be able to keep up with my studies? Will I face difficulties? Will I be able to arrange all administrative issues by myself? We put a high priority on supporting you whether these are your first essential arrangements in Budapest, personal problems or academic questions. Our guiding intentions are to help you find your way, be successful and achieve your future goals.
All students can turn to the Student Support Manager and have private conversations about any personal matters simply to be heard, receive support, overcome difficulties and concentrate on studies.
Academic Counselling is provided to all students who have any academic questions related to matters such as credits, modules or academic progression. Students can arrange one-to-one meetings and discuss any academic essentials, questions or difficulties with the Academic Counsellor.
Should a student have any kind of learning disabilities or suspect that they may, guidance is provided by the Disabilities Services Coordinator. Similarly, if any students suffer with or develop a significant long-term health condition, we will provide the appropriate support.
For any student coming to IBS and Hungary from abroad, we provide you with dedicated advice related to practical everyday life matters such as legal stay in Hungary; accommodation, health insurance, opening a bank account etc.
The IBS Peer Mentoring Programme connects trained Second year BSc Mentors with newly starting first year students (Mentees). Peer support is a vital way to support the transition to life as an IBS student and our Mentors are here to support their mentees through the crucial first new semester having had experience of that same journey. You can turn to your mentors for tips on classes, assessments and social activities as well.
Going to University is a very exciting time for any individual and for a family as a whole but it can also be overwhelming and fraught with worry, especially for a parent, when your loved one is moving to another city or even another continent or country. We take pride in supporting our students as they progress into adulthood with a range of support services. We provide this information so that you are aware of the assistance that we provide in order to reassure you that your loved one is receiving the best care as possible
As much as we wish to support you in this process, due to strict Data Protection laws we are not permitted to release any information about a student to a third party without that student’s expressed permission in the Contract of Education. “Third parties” include parents, guardians, siblings and spouses. We understand that this can be frustrating but we strive to care for all students in the best possible way.
