College scholarship, grant and advisory system

Scholarship and grant advisory system

Recognising the need for a young person starting their higher education studies to be able to navigate the various tuition fees, scholarships and tuition support possibilities, the Budapest Contemporary Dance Academy has established an advisory office, which provides personal counselling to prospective and current students of BCDA. The office helps the student to explore the possibilities of obtaining part or all of the necessary resources for tuition fees and living during the study period.

For a young person at higher education, understanding how to find the financial resources to live and achieve their professional goals is part of their personal development and their way of life. Learning about support opportunities and systems is an essential part of this process. The responsibility for the way in which a student finances his/her own life is primarily his/her own and partly, depending on the possibilities, that of his/her family. As a contribution to this, the BCDA helps students to find grants and scholarships.

Examples of tuition fee support and other scholarship opportunities:

  • Rectorial scholarships
  • National higher education scholarships
  • Excellence Scholarship of Capital Circus of Budapest
  • Municipal scholarships
  • NGOs and foundations with which BCDA has a good professional relationship and which provide partial or full tuition fee support to students on the basis of good references.
  • Student loan
