our mission

Creating a link of information between Hungarian students in the UK and the Hungarian labour market

Our last four sessions intended to create a connection between the Hungarian talent pool that is to be found within the higher education communities of the United Kingdom, and the leading, up-and-coming, as well as start-up firms in Hungary. This year’s session serves to foster, enable and enrich this link, and to help stakeholders on both sides of the job market to further leverage this network.

Our growth is showing signs of the true potential of our enterprise but we will not stop until all Hungarian students within the UK have either attended our conference or have received opportunities through our network. This is our fourth session and we are proud to present the figures of previous years.

student delegates in 2019

 

This year represents a landmark in our initiative’s history as we launched the Meet-up series for the first time to cater to the needs of Hungarian students throughout the year. At the first event in June, attendees had the chance to see the clash of the start-up and the corporate world in a roundtable debate. The latest event was in September, where students could hear an interview with Her Majesty’s Ambassador to Hungary on current affairs and the implications of Brexit and participate in a workshop on the art of public speaking.

By expanding our range of events beyond our flagship conference we not only kept our current audience engaged with our initiative throughout the year but significantly increased the number of students interested in being part of the

Future of Hungary

 
Following last year’s conference, 43% of student delegates applied to and completed an internship in Hungary during the summer. This number surpassed even our most optimistic expectations.

Gala Dinner

As a closing gala to our conference, this fine dining experience is generally held at one of the historic buildings of Cambridge, providing a beautiful end to a productive day. Our participants take this opportunity to establish further connections with each other and firm representatives, and have great conversations over wine and cheese.

Last year's venue choice was the historic University Arms Hotel. The hotel was first opened in 1834. It was originally built as a coaching inn to provide a resting point for travelers before the development of railway network in Britain. With its staggering interior and fine-quality dinner, it was a superb venue to host our delegates. You will soon see what do we have for you this year.
