 "My European adventure started with beautiful Hungary. I came to study in Eger last year and it was a life changing experience. Every single day was a new adventure for me that was completely different from my life back home. While being here, I have the chance to meet new people from all over the world, I've made new friends with whom I'm exchanging culture and traditions. Having this time away from my country also allowed me to become a mature and responsible young person. I've learnt that developing strong relationships with people is one of the most important things in life.

Im so fortunate for having this opportunity to study here in Eger for 3 years. My speciality is computer science and my teachers are so nice and helpful.

Apart from studying, I really enjoyed sightseeing in Eger,it's rich in monuments and natural attractions. It is reasonably considered as the baroque pearl of Hungary.. The castle and the outstanding view from it, the Minaret, Dobo square, Basillica, thermal and Turkish baths and so on. The university itself is truly beautiful building in which there are libraries and many interesting rooms as well.

So, for you people who are willing to study abroad, I would recommend coming to Hungary. This experience will give you a fresh new vision, a new way of life perception and allows you to discover other cultures around you, cultures you wouldn't even know existed.

Well, in the end, I hope everyone will get the opportunity to come here and have a unique educational experience as I just did."

 "My studies at Eszterházy Károly University started on January 6th, 2014. It was also they day I started to fall in love with this huge community. I confess I underestimated either Eger and Eszterházy at first, what was a big mistake I've committed. The Hungarian people are nice, polite, fun, receptive and PÁLINKA! Eger is awesome! The city weather is great, the food is good and not expensive, the castle is amazing and the city is not big, what is nice if you like to sightseeing on foot and enjoy the fresh air through the tree's leaves. The International Programme Office was really helpful and they gave us all the information we needed, like the dormitory where we would stay and the university buildings locations. Furthermore, we had a reception week for all the international students, where we could meet each other and have a sightseeing with a professor as a guide, what brought us to the first Hungarian Language lessons.

As soon as possible, Dr. Gábor Kusper, Head of the Department of Computer Science, contacted all of us to talk about the subjects we would take. We could select most of them and have English classes with very good professors, including Dr. Kusper. The subjects were very well taught and we could enjoy every minute, from the lectures to the practical parts. The building structure is also amazing and something that really caught me. They have amazing laboratories, with good computers and equipment, as robots and drones.

As an international student, the Erasmus Students Network (ESN) managed some fun programs we could do together, as the PaintBall, Trips, Hangouts, Film sessions, etc.

Come to Eger, come to Eszterházy Károly University! You'll never regret and I can ensure it will be the best part of your life, like it was for me!"

"I lived in Eger for one year and a half and I experienced the most wonderful time of my life. I did not choose Eger as first option and I regret that. It could have been my first option since the first moment I decided to go to Hungary, because this city has changed my life incredibly and unexpectedly.
The university was the first place I got used to and I made so many friends there. The teachers were amazing and helpful with me and the other international students. Every problem I had, the mobility office was prepared to help me and to sort each of them out.
When I arrived in Eger, I did not have friends at all. And it turned into an useful situation, since it pushed me to make new friends and to know new cultures as well.
Another great thing that happened to me was the contact with the Erasmus students. We used to live in the same dormitory and had such a great time together in Eger. Ever since then we have been great friends.
Eger is a wonderful and cosy city in the North part of Hungary and it is the best option to go on exchange if the aims are to improve language skills, to meet new friends and to have a really Hungarian experience. Furthermore, the most tasty and the best known wine of Hungary is from Eger. There is a wine valley not so far from the city center and the other international students and I used to hang out and have a time off around there. We also can find the best cakes of Hungary in the bakeries of Eger, the most polite and friendly Hungarians on the streets and the most beautiful architecture I have ever seen in a small town.
This experience will be in my mind for the rest of my life and all that I turned into since Hungary, I owe to Eger and the friends I have made in this unforgettable city.
Lastly, I would like to give some advices.
First one: if you have the opportunity, live with the other international students;
Second one: get involved in the activities provided by the University. They are an unique experience.
Third one: Learn some Hungarian words. It may be very useful to make new friends and to get some help easier on the streets.
Last one: Enjoy every moment of your life either making friends or studying a new subject, for example. Change your habits, discover yourself, take this time to draw a new future way"
