A freemover is a student who wishes to study abroad independent of any exchange program. Freemover students are welcome to apply to Corvinus University of Budapest to study independently. Freemover students have the same access to all the university coordinated programs and courses taught in English as our other degree-seeking students.
The student’s home university may already have an Erasmus partnership orother agreement with Corvinus University of Budapest. This means that the student can be nominated through the partnership program (e.g:Erasmus) however,they can freely apply as a Free-mover student too. We do not recommend sending in applications via both channels, our free-mover applicants mostly opt for this option as Erasmus places have often limited number of seats available or we do not have an partnerhsip agreement with their home university.
In case the applicant’s home university is in the Unites States please check if the institute has a partnerhsip agreement with Corvinus University aspart of its Study Abroad program.
See the list of our partner institutions below.
Freemover students are responsible for following the regulations of their own home universities with regards to study abroad and credit acceptance. Before committing to a semester at Corvinus, freemovers should first confirm with their home universities that their credits earned at Corvinus will be accepted at their home universities.
