Meeting on Bhutanese prospective students

On January 24, 2014 a high-ranking delegation was welcomed at Szent István University by our Rector, Dr. János Tőzsér. The Honorary Consul-General of the Kingdom of Thailand in Germany, Khunying Barbara Riepl, and Countess Nicoletta Batthyány-Szentágothay, visited Hungary in order to ensure university places for 5-10 Bhutanese students, starting their studies here, 2015 onwards.
During the discussion, all English degree courses of Szent István University were introduced and offered for the prospective students. As it was also expressed, their academic expenses and living costs will be privately funded by Khunying Barbara Riepl. The meeting was followed by a short tour around the campus, and ended with an agreement on starting the preparations for the visit of Her Majesty Ashi Sangay Choden Wangchuck, the Queen Mother of Bhutan.
