Dear International Visitor,
Welcome to the homepage of the Language Teaching Centre of the University of Miskolc!
The primary goal of our centre is to provide students with high quality language acquisition in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Russian, Latin, Hungarian languages.
It is our university’s mission to ensure that students graduate as highly qualified professionals who meet the requirements of the current labour market. Therefore, our centre offers specialized language courses for professional purposes besides our regular general competence-based language courses. Our teachers have extensive experience in teaching technical, economic, legal, and medical professional terminologies in the above languages.
We offer specialized translator programmes to our students in material science, law, engineering and economics as well as business language courses in order to help our graduates integrate in the labour market in Hungary and abroad.
Our centre also offers international students a “preparatory year” complex programme in line with the international preparatory year curriculum. Students enrolling in the programme can acquire the language and academic competences required to enter university abroad.
We are a language examination centre as well for language examination systems specific to Hungary. Students who wish to obtain a language certificate can pass the examination in our centre and can also enrol in our popular exam preparatory courses in the above languages.
Besides foreign language acquisition, we are dedicated to teaching Hungarian as a foreign language. Our Hungarian courses are a requirement for Erasmus exchange students, and they are also a practical option for all international students in order to successfully integrate in the Hungarian job market.
Please consult the information on our courses!
