Under the exceptional circumstances of COVID-19, we are offering all our students a free choice: you can decide whether you wish to attend classes face-to-face or online in the fall semester. All students can choose to study online instead of attending face-to-face classes, including those who are currently in Hungary.

Please write to email@example.com if you wish to enrol online. The Student Centre will give you an appointment by email for the online enrolment. It will be done in a video chat (you will need a laptop and camera) and you will have to present your passport, original school documents and English language certificate (if you have one) and sign the contract in front of the IBS administrator.
Please note that if you choose to do the first semester online, you cannot switch to face-to-face classes as the semester progresses. There is only one exception: international students who would like to study face-to-face but arrive late due to visa or travel issues. They can start online and then switch to face-to-face when they arrive if they wish (The tuition fee is the same for online or face-to-face classes).
You will get the timetable from the Student Center.
