”Hungary was recommended to me by my best friend, so actually I just had to choose the right University. However, I must admit I have made a lot of research about the Hungarian history and found it very rich and amazing. There are so many historic places to go and many things to do. When I was searching for Communication programs in Budapest, Metropolitan was the first result. I became particularly interested in this University because Metropolitan focuses on teaching practical knowledge and I have the opportunity to practice the acquired methods and techniques on real-life issues. One of my primary reasons to study here is, those Metropolitan degrees are recognized in all EU countries and the University has a lot of partners around the world. During seminars, we study in small groups, so I feel that instructors can focus on teaching us individually and can really mentor us. They can find out in which fields we are more talented and focus on how to make us the best.”

"Journalists have a deep impact on our ability and disposition to communicate and cooperate with each other both in our everyday life and at a social level. The most important virtue of any journalist is a firm code of ethics and moral standards and the ability to look at the world as a free individual. No other basis may underpin credible and ethical journalism. At Metropolitan this is what we try to achieve in the hope that our graduates will become members of the elite group of highly professional and honorable journalists.”
