When you are coming to university in another country, there are lots of things you need to know,
from travel and accommodation arrangements to sorting out your documents.
We would like to help you and make your life easier,
so we’ve collected some useful information for you about these matters:
When you arrive to the Liszt Ferenc International Airport (Budapest Airport) you can travel to Debrecen with TroubleShooter’s contracted shuttle bus partner or by train. Please let us know if you need a pickup from the airport.
You can use the railway to travel from Budapest Airport to Debrecen, to travel within Hungary or visit the neighboring countries.
At the main campus area, Auguszta Hostel and OEC West Hostel are the most popular dormitories among international students. It is a general suggestion for newcomers to stay one semester in one of the dormitories until they get know the surroundings and the city.
Before you start searching for a flat and browsing sites, please read this useful guidance. Some agencies are advertising themselves with free services for students. Here in Hungary, the agents are paid by the owners of flats; they pay a fee for advertising their apartments and finding a tenant to rent their apartment.
After arrival, all international students have to register at the Directorate-General for Aliens Policing. This guide provides useful information and lists all the documents you will need.
Registered international students can apply for a student card. The student card entitles you to certain discounts (public transportation, museum entrance fees, cinema, etc).
Public transportation in Debrecen is provided by DKV (short for Debreceni Közlekedési Vállalat – Public Transport Company of Debrecen). 2 tram, 5 trolleybus and 51 bus routes and scheduled services are available.
International students need to complete their personal, paper-based registration in the beginning of their studies. The registration takes place at the Coordinating Center for International Education and the Registrar’s Office.
We know that the first few weeks in a new country can be difficult, we are here to guide you every step of the way. Feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
You will be obliged to undergo a medical examination at the border upon your arrival to Hungary to check for signs of Covid-19 infection. Those individuals suspected of infection will be required to stay in quarantine for 14 days.
Now you know the basics what you need when coming to UD!
