Description of International Foundation Year

For those students who require additional instruction or review in sciences and in English language we offer foundation year courses to prepare them to study in their chosen degree program. Students successfully finishing the Foundation Year program with average 4.0 are guaranteed admission into any engineering, IT or business program.Offering a range of courses, including intensive English language study, which bridges the gap between the students' current qualifications and background and the knowledge and skills required for honors courses, the International Foundation Year provides students with the necessary skills to proceed to study their chosen discipline.

Education of basic science subjects - biology, physics, mathematics and chemistry is quite demanding in Hungarian High Schools. The Foundation Year program is recommended for those applicants who do not have enough knowledge in biology, physics, chemistry, mathematics or in any of these subjects according to Hungarian standards, and need further studies and a period for acclimatization before entering an engineering, IT or business program. In addition to these basic scientific subjects, courses in Academic English and Hungarian languages are also included in the program.

The preparation of foreign students, to enable them to successfully learn subjects at the University of Debrecen, is carried out according to the curriculum of the foundation year. During this time, several subjects will be taught to students: standard English language, professional English language, Hungarian language for foreign students, and optionally, - depending on prospective studies, ­- mathematics, IT skills and biology, chemistry, or physics. The language courses may be supplemented by laboratory exercises.
