During the program, other immersion opportunities and cultural experiences such as social hours, cooking classes taught by Hungarian students, and volunteering activities will be available.

Volunteer Program

AIFS has developed a volunteering program for students in association with a Budapest based NGO on themes of social responsibility and inclusion of the Roma community. In the spring semester, students will assist in leading a conversation course for children and new mothers from Budapest Roma communities. They will receive training and instruction and will be supervised by an NGO team leader. In the fall, students will take part in community projects where they will interact and work alongside local volunteers and community members in carrying out small renovation tasks in a Roma settlementís primary school and kindergarten and work in the community garden of the settlement.

√údv√∂z√∂lj√ľk! 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 other cultural and natural treasures in 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.
