International School Opens in Debrecen

MTI-Hungary Today 2019.09.02.

The development of Debrecen, in eastern Hungary, can serve as an example to all Hungarian cities, head of the Prime Minister’s Office Gergely Gulyás said on Friday at the opening of the International School of Debrecen (ISD).

Debrecen’s transformation into a cross-border regional centre would be impossible to sustain without such a high-level international school, Gulyás said at the opening event. The school has been built with 3.8 billion forints (EUR 11.5m) support from the central budget, he added.

There are few educational institutions in the region that have the International Baccalaureate (IB) certificate and ISD “will be a great opportunity for the city and also for Hungary”, he said.

Gulyás also said that talented students from Debrecen and its region whose parents cannot afford to pay for the international school can apply for scholarships from the local council. The school will start operations with 56 students this year which is expected to increase to 500 in five years.
