Notes for Hungary

Pre-university education requires 12 or 13 years of study.

Foiskola Oklevel is a professionally oriented college-level degree. It can be offered by universities, but it is not acceptable for graduate admission.

A Red Diploma indicates highest honours (Kinuteteses OK level) and is awarded to those whose grades on the State Examination are all 5`s, whose thesis and comprehensive examinations receive all 5`s, and whose average of all other grades is at least 3.51.

Blue Diplomas are awarded to students in law and medicine who pass all examinations with the maximum mark of 5.

Applicants who have completed a first degree program of five or more years in length which includes a thesis may be considered for admission to a doctoral program.
