„Personally, I am very inspired by the diversity at the University of Debrecen in terms of its population, students with different religions and their politeness towards each other’s values.
The best thing about this university is that it offers an opportunity to meet people from all over the world and the way cultural diversity is incorporated into food, events and parties is incredible. And of course, apart from all the fascination and attractions, a student always needs time and space to study. The campus culture and other learning prospects are well-suited for students in Debrecen. “
