The most important class, however, for me and for hundreds of other Hungarian musicians, was the chamber-music class. From about the age of fourteen, and until graduation from the Academy, all instrumentalists except the heavy-brass players and percussionists had to participate in this course. Presiding over it for many years was the composer Leó Weiner, who thus exercised an enormous influence on three generations of Hungarian musicians.

Tuition fee payment for self-financed international students

The Academy has to enter into a contract with all self-financed students. Signing the contracts happens in the enrolment period of the first semester of a new programme. For international students' contracts, please see Anna Kovács in room 014 (Study Department, Ligeti Building).

The contract is for the whole length of the programme and it is stated whether the tuition fee is based on per semester or per credit. You can request the latter if you have successfully approved credit transfer request, or you could not finish your studies in the given period (e.g. 6 semesters in case of BA). If you have less than 30 credits left in a case like this, paying the tuition fee based on credit is advised.

The fee of one credit is the 1/30 of the semester fee.

Set tuition fee amounts are available here.



For international students invoice is only generated after their payment is made in order to avoid exchange rate differences as much as possible (although its effect cannot be entirely eliminated). However, you may request an invoice beforehand, but please note that the Academy only issues HUF based invoices.

You can find and print your invoices in Neptun (Finances > Invoices).

In your transfer amount please include the possible banking fees (please make inquiries at your bank), the Academy cannot be held liable for that. If your payment falls short, you will have to pay the missing amount separately until the given deadline.



In exceptional cases, taking into considertion the student's financial matters, academic achievement, requesting tuition fee payment in instalments, and asking for delayed fee payment is possible within 21 days after the end of the registration period the latest. If you are interested, please see your study adminsitrator.
