Science Without Borders

July 17, 2013
The "Science Without Borders" is an international education program funded by the Brazilian government and Hungary was the first participant in this cooperation from Middle-Eastern Europe. From September 2013. thousands of brasilian students started their study program at different univerities all around the country. The University of Dunaújváros received a total number of 70 brazilian students during the 3 years.


In the first period with the full number of 20 brasilian participant, the University of Dunaújváros received the fifth largest group in Hungary. In 2014. February a second group of Brasilian students arrived in Dunaújváros. From the 32 new participants 24 of them started their first semester subjects on our Bachelor programs while the other 8 of them formed an English preparatory course.

The 24 students from the second group with the 20 students of the first group did their professional internship during the summer of 2014. The internship took place in various companies in Hungary and was organised by the University of Dunaújváros. The first group of Brasilian students traveled back home at the end of the summer.

At 2014 September 6 new students arrived to Dunaújváros and together with the second group they start their studies in our Bachelor programs. In January 2015 those Brazilian students who had no English language preparatory program finished their studies in Hungary and returned home. Now the remaining 12 students finishing their studies and participating in their internship programs till the and of the summer.

From September 2015 the last team of Brazilians students, with 9 people arrived to our city. Just like the ones before them, they had 2 semesters of studies and 8 weeks of internship here.

Now the Science Withour Borders program finished - based on the decision of the Brazilian Government - but the University of Dunaújváros hopes that in the near future we can accept new groups from Brazil again!
