The program Budapest Semesters in Mathematics provides a unique opportunity for North American undergraduates. Through this program, mathematics majors in their junior/senior years may spend one or two semesters in Budapest and study under the tutelage of eminent Hungarian scholar-teachers.
All courses are taught in English. Classes are small. The school is near the center of historic Budapest. Living costs are modest. An optional intensive language course is offered about two weeks before regular classes begin.
If you are interested in enrolling in a course not in our database, please send this course for evaluation.
The instructors of Budapest Semesters in Mathematics are members of Eotvos University and the Mathematical Institute of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, the two institutions known for having educated more than half of Hungary's highly acclaimed mathematicians. Most instructors have had teaching experience in North America and are familiar with the cultural differences.
