University Heads: Participation in EU Mobility Schemes “Must Be Guaranteed”


EU education, research and mobility schemes must be guaranteed to everyone participating in Hungarian university life, regardless of who runs the university, the Hungarian Rectors’ Conference (MRK) said at the weekend.


Fully 63 higher education institutions operate in Hungary, run by either the state, churches, private institutions or public foundations, the MRK statement said. Any political debate that ends up curbing participation of Hungarian university students or lecturers in the EU’s education, mobility and research programmes is “unacceptable”, it added. These schemes must be available equally to all university students, lecturers and researchers of all EU countries without exception, the statement said.
