Useful Information

 

1. By means of the Higher Education Law of 2011, the state grant supported status can be extended by four semesters, thus, based on the legislation in effect, the length of the supported period for a given program in case of students with disabilities may be longer than the length of the given program by not more than six semesters and must not exceed the 12+4=16 semesters altogether.

2. We operate a closed mailing list for students with disabilities at the University of Miskolc to share important information (e.g. calls for conferences, grants or job opportunities etc.).

 3. Students with disabilities applying for the Erasmus Programme will be eligible for further support.
