Moving to Hungary
Hungary has become a popular destination for expats in recent years. Even though It joined the European Union in 2004, the cost of living is still cheaper there than in Western European countries, which means you can save a lot of money during your stay. In addition to its' many job opportunities, Hungary is a highly sought-after destination for medical students who are attracted to the relatively comfortable admission requirements, the reasonable tuition fees, and international English programs. Also, as a medical student you will get a diploma that is recognized by the European Union and the United States.

Now that you know a bit more about the country, let’s give you a run through on how their healthcare system works.

    Cheers to that!
    It is considered rude to clink your beer glasses in Hungary. This dates back to 1848, when the Austrians quashed the Hungarian Revolution and 13 major officials were executed, the Austrians clinked their beers after each one. Since then it was banned for 150 years, and still to this day is frowned upon.

    The Wild East?
    Forget the Wild West in the USA, Hungary has its own version of cowboys called Csikos. They wear predominantly blue and roam the plains of Puszta on horseback.

    Name please!
    In Hungary, if you want to name your child something that is not on the official list of names, then you have to get permission from the government at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences of all places.
