1. After receiving the notification about being awarded the Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship, the first thing you need to do is enter the online application system and accept the scholarship within 2 weeks, the latest. It is not possible to accept the scholarship offer after this deadline.
2. Please, keep in mind that there is no way to change the host institution, the study programme, or the study mode that you are allocated to. Yet, you can decide whether you wish to start your studies there or not.
[/sawcon][sawcon title=”Host institution”]
Although you can take it for granted that your future host institution will also contact you, if it does not happen for some reason, take action and write to your Diaspora Scholarship coordinator.
a. They will send you your Letter of Acceptance, which is one of the documents required for visa application.
b. They will let you know about the date when you are expected to arrive in Hungary, i.e. when the registration period starts and ends.
It is normally during the first few days of September but your host institution will provide you with exact information.
Mind you, you will not be able to download the Letter of Acceptance until you upload all those certificates that were required but you did not have earlier. The final deadline for submitting the missing documents is 1st August.
[/sawcon][sawcon title=”Letter of award”]
After you received the Letter of Acceptance, you will be able to download the Letter of Award within a few days from the system, which is the other document required for visa application.
This letter is issued by Tempus Public Foundation and it will be sent to you via email too.
[/sawcon][sawcon title=”Visa process”]
When you have both the Letter of Acceptance and Letter of Award, please start the visa application process right away – within two weeks the latest!
It is important to make the necessary arrangements well ahead of time because it may take 30 days until a visa is issued. In order to apply for a visa to Hungary, you need to contact the relevant consular office.
