Higher-level Vocational Training

According to Act CXXXIX of 2005 on Higher Education (currently in force), the precondition for admission to higher-level vocational training – with the exceptions defined in the law – is the successful completion of the secondary school leaving examination. Students studying in higher-level vocational training are eligible for bursaries and benefits as specified by the laws on vocational training. Students are required to take a vocational examination, in compliance with the provisions applying to vocational education.

Upon successful completion of the vocational examination, the University issues a certificate of vocational qualification as defined in the National Qualifications Register and, if requested by the student, will provide a certificate supplement, as well.

High-level vocational training counts as part of the state-funded period.
