By Tamás Székely // 2017.04.13.

More than 10,000 young Hungarians pursue their studies abroad, mostly at universities in western Europe and the United States, daily Magyar Nemzet said on Thursday, citing a survey.

Austria and Germany are the two most popular countries with about 2,000 Hungarian students each, the survey conducted by the Engame Academy student centre said. The third most popular destination is the United Kingdom, followed by Denmark and the United States.

More than 40 percent of students choose a western university to obtain a marketable diploma and more than 30 percent said they were dissatisfied with the level of education in Hungary. Almost 40 percent of those Hungarians finance their studies with a student loan, 33 percent with family support and about 30 percent from a grant, the paper said.
