Student organizations

Student Council

Hallgatói Önkormányzat, HÖK
“Közgáz” Campus - Main Building, Room 17
E-mail: hok(at)uni-corvinus.hu  

The Student Union is a special unit among university bodies. Its central responsibility is to represent the students’ interests. Its members are elected annually. Each faculty has its own SU board, which are coordinated by the University Student Union (EHÖK).

The SU’s jobs are threefold: representation of students, communication and other services. The SU is present with 1/3 of the votes at all important decision-making meetings of the university, such as the Senate, the Faculty Councils and the Committees. Students with education-related issues should turn to the Student Union for help and assistance. As for communications, the Student Union has the responsibility of informing students about university news and changes in regulations. Other services include organizing amazing events and professional lectures, which are a huge part of student life.

The Student Union also has an International Team, which is committed to help incoming international students with any trouble they might have. You can contact them at kulugy(at)bcehok.hu.

AEGEE

Association des Etats Généraux des Etudiants de l’Europe, European Students Network Association
“Közgáz” Campus - Main Building, Ground Floor, Room 9

AEGEE is present in more than 200 cities with 13 000 members. As a unique European organisation, it only operates on local and European level and not on a national one. AEGEE’s aims include promoting international mobility, protecting democratic values and human rights, promoting a unified Europe and creating an open-minded society.

In order to achieve these goals, AEGEE organises summer universities, exchange programmes, trainings and conferences. These events are organised by local students and attended by young adults with various European nationalities. Members of AEGEE-Budapest can attend these events and participate in the organisation’s life, the weekly meetings and community programmes. There is a camp every six months and weekend training programmes. Members can also help, participate or initiate organising the international events.

AIESEC

“Közgáz” Campus - Main Building, Ground Floor, Room 21

AIESEC, as the UN acknowledged, is the world’s biggest international non-profit organisation which is run by students. It is present in more than a 100 countries, on 1600 universities, with 50 000 members. Hungary joined this network in 1972, and by now we have 12 offices in 8 cities.

The profile includes a young, dynamic team, improving their skills and managing the International Internship Programme.

There are two kinds of membership at AIESEC. As a long term member, students have the opportunity to explore their potentials and enhance their skills for the benefit of their future career. During the AIESEC years, they are going to be able to participate in internships and tasks that allow them to improve and test their theoretical knowledge in practice. The other membership type is the participation in the International Internship Programme. Within this program, they can apply for various internships in 110 countries from all over the world, in the not-for-profit, state or corporate sector. There is a choice of thousands of opportunities in the online system in a number of fields: management, social development, IT and education.

Hungarian Model United Nations Society


The Hungarian Model United Nations Society was established in 1997 by students from CUB and ELTE. Since 2009, we organise the annual Budapest MUN in cooperation with students from CEU. Students become part of a grand situation game; they can walk in the shoes of decision-maker politicians and can try, without consequences, what it is like to participate in serious negotiations.

Apart from its initial goal of modelling the UN, the society now considers it a responsibility to build a connection between the UN (with its specialised agencies) and the Hungarian youth, and to provide an informative forum on the UN and other international organisations. This manifests in various lectures and a competition for high school students on UNESCO. We also send students to youth programs and exchanges in Europe as a partner of Mobilitas National Youth Service.

ESN  Erasmus Student Network Corvinus 

ESN Corvinus grew out of “Erasmus Working Group”, a team within AEGEE, in 2007, when it was founded as a separate student organisation and joined the ESN network, which is present at 361 European universities.

The organisation is not for profit. It is responsible for organising programs for incoming exchange students, helping them to fit in and manage their lives in a foreign country. ESN cooperates with the International Office at all times.

The number of incoming exchange students grows every year; at present, it is over 300 per semester. Corvinus University of Budapest is the No. 1 university in Hungary which receives the most exchange students.

ESN has 50 helpful student members, who commit their free time to help international students.
