5-Studying in Hungary : Tunisian student Ghada Bouajaja’s experience.
Ghada Bouajaja is a Tunisian student living and studying in Hungary since 2017, she was so nice to share her experience with us. “I was studying Media and Communication Sciences in Tunisia when I heard about the opportunity.” she said. “At the beginning I was not sure about applying since I did not have any language certificate and I was not well equipped with necessary information. But since studying abroad with a scholarship has always been a dream for me, I worked hard to improve my english and to get a B2 language certificate.


The application procedure was easy and not that complicated which encouraged me more to apply. I got the scholarship in 2017 to study for a Bachelor in International Relations at the University of Pécs. I graduated in June 2020 and I applied again for the scholarship and now I’m pursuing a MA in Political Sciences at Pàzmany Péter Catholic University in Budapest”
She was so helpful and wanted to give more advice for you:” Before applying you should be well informed about the details of the application procedure.
