Yes, I recommend this program


Studying abroad in Budapest with API was one of the greatest decisions I have ever made.

I did not know much about Hungary prior to my arrival, but the API program staff in Budapest helped me get acclimated and where there to help with any questions or concerns that I had. Budapest is a beautiful city with a lot to do. The API programs planned awesome excursions, and gave a lot of suggestions for things to do in the city without the group.

I highly suggest studying through API's Corvinus University program!

API was fantastic

I would highly recommend this program to anyone who is looking to study abroad off the beaten path. API provides a good mix of immersing you in the culture, while providing plenty to make you feel supported. I became good friends with Hungarians and other study abroad students from all over the world alike. The overall experience was fantastic, and its a great location to travel from.

Best experience of my life!

The on-site program director is a god-send. Whenever we had a problem, got sick, etc, she was a phone call away and would help us maneuver through the problem.

The housing is nice flats in central Budapest. Located a few minutes away from the school by tram or subway. You are provided a transportation pass as well!

All the extra trips, events, and tours were also very enriching and what makes the program so awesome! Whether it's a tour throughout Transylvania or just going on a tour of the 8th District of Budapest. API allows you to see a lot of things that would go unseen if you just were in Budapest by yourself.
