Education System in Hungary Created by Dávid Gönczy 11/A
Education System in Hungary Children in Hungary start school at the age of 6 and are supposed to attend school until the age of 16, two years earlier than coming of age, that is to say turning 18. Before starting school, children are required to attend kindergarten. Elementary school All pupils start at elementary school (1 st to 8 th form). When pupils finish elementary school, they can enrol into vocational schools, where they are taught practical skills needed to perform a particular job. These schools give a trade certificate but pupils are not prepared for the school-leaving exam that is required to enter higher education. If someone would like to learn a trade and enrol into higher education afterwards, the best choice for them is the secondary vocational school offering tuition in both practical and academic skills.
Education System in Hungary Secondary schools 1/ General secondary school Most pupils who plan to continue their studies in higher education pursue their secondary education in a general secondary school, which provides general education and concludes with the so-called Matura examination. In this type of school it is compulsory to take the final exam in five subjects: maths, history, Hungarian grammar and literature, one foreign language (which could be English, German, Italian, Spanish, French, Russian) and an optional subject which is usually science, art or P:E. 2/ Secondary vocational school Secondary vocational schools currently provide general and pre-vocational education at upper secondary level in grades 9 to 12 and lead to a secondary school leaving examination, which qualifies for higher education entry. 3/ Vocational school They offer the opportunity to learn a profession. In the 9 th – 12 th grades of the secondary school, students are taught general subjects. This is a preparation phase for the secondary school leaving certificate and practical basic knowledge is taught in workgroups.
Education System in Hungary Higher Education At present, higher education in Hungary is based on the Bologna system, which is in force in most European countries, making studying abroad much easier. Students who complete their first 3 or 4 years of study earn a Bachelor’s degree and can continue their studies to earn a Master’s degree, which takes 1 or 2 years. The highest level is the doctoral degree, which means another 3-4 years of study.
