About Budapest Metropolitan University of Applied Sciences

MET University of Applied Sciences is one of the largest private universities of Central Europe with a constantly growing international community. Aside from the very popular programmes from Communication to Tourism, MET offers programmes which only few universities do, for example Craftsmenship, Graphic Design, Media Design, Television Production Arts, compared to other Hungarian and European universities. 

In addition to that, MET has a unique training system which means that the tuition fee includes an unparalleled series of special programs. Trainings are based on group work where only a few students work together focusing on learning-by-doing. The training technique is the most efficient way of improving communication skills and creative thinking which are the most important competencies required on the labor market.

MET offers professional knowledge at realistic prices at the heart of the European Union. The amount of tuition fees depend on various factors: whether it is a BA or MA programme, whether the student is from the EU or not, whether the student is entitled to our Early Bird discount, etc. Tuition fees start from as little as 1350 EUR / semester. Currently MET offers 15 different programmes in English, but this number is increasing year by year, not to mention the English Language Preparatory Programme which is a great help for those who do not have the sufficient command of the language to start a BA or MA programme. MET's next goal is to launch a few programmes in Russian as well from next semester. Students are welcome from all over the world at MET. MET University of Applied Sciences is proud to have had students from dozens of different countries and 4 continents so far.

Campus information

MET University of Applied Sciences has 5 campuses altogether. The main campus where the majority of the English classes are held consists of modern buildings in a green environment. Student work and learning at the University is facilitated by unrestricted access to a Wi-Fi network covering the complete area of the campus, and a number of computer work stations scattered around the buildings. 

Downtown Rózsa Street and Rottenbiller Street Campuses is home to the art programs of the University offering workshops and classrooms adapted to the special needs of art classes including a photo studio and laboratory, a cameramen studio, cutting rooms and teaching spaces for animation studies. The glass walls of the studios offer people passing by a glimpse of the artists at work. 

The equipment – such as looms, electronic kilns, etching presses, industrial sewing machines and 150 high-performance Macintosh computers – needed for the arts programs are also housed inside these creative spaces. The campus also boasts one of the very few Leonar3Do laboratories in the world with the special interactive 3D software installed offering students the opportunity to work in real space and time.

Nagy Lajos király street campus 

  • The central educational facility of the University, with its modern circular building which opened in 2006, is a unique complex compared with the premises of Hungarian higher education institutions. The two buildings of the central campus are located in a green environment. Lectures are held in the two vast lecture theaters of the circular building, each with a capacity of 360 persons, and the two smaller lecture halls of the main building. In addition, our facilities include 21 small and medium-sized seminar rooms with state-of-the-art educational technology and we also boast 9 rooms equipped for IT courses.

Those who arrive by car will find parking spaces in front of the building. Our Downtown Campus (home to the art programmes) offers easy access due to its location between two major hubs, both linked by metro, trams, trolley buses and buses.
