Üdvözöljük! Welcome to Budapest. Originally a native of Istanbul, my graduate studies in Political Science took me to this beautiful and unique city where I made a home and lifelong friends.

Budapest, Hungary is at the heart of Europe, with one foot in its glorious Austro-Hungarian past and another foot firmly placed into the future. The city has undergone many changes since I arrived, but its Hungarian residents, young and old, are committed to preserving its unique and colorful historical character.

Here in Budapest and Hungary, you will hear great music, marvel at one of the most pristine urban architectures in Europe yet with an authentic Hungarian character; get to experience its culinary delicacies and its wine culture as an enduring symbol of fine living since the Roman times, and study at the home of Hungary's Nobel laureates in sciences and literature. You will gain competence in a unique European language and get to practice it daily with Hungarian friends on walking trips throughout the city's beautiful boulevards and its many historical neighborhoods, sailing along the Danube Bend and visiting the other cultural and natural treasures throughout Hungary.

I look forward to welcoming you to Budapest!

The Resident Director provides academic advice, introduces you to the community and handles communication with the University.

AIFS Campus Staff with First Aid Training
