Talent Management in the Hungarian Higher Education

Student Research Societies (TDK)


Over the past six decades, a unique form of cooperation between students and teachers has developed in the Hungarian higher-education system. Known as Student Research Societies (TDK), their activities have played a crucial role in the Hungarian education system and in its world-class achievements.

Student Research Societies have become the preeminent organisation in which gifted Hungarian undergraduates can have their talents fostered and promoted. They are the main platform for self-study, quality tuition and scholarly education, where prominent researchers and talented students can take their first steps towards scientific success in an encouraging and democratic atmosphere.

Most institutions of higher education in the country provide an opportunity for students to join Research Societies. Learn more here.
