Education in Hungary

When you enter another culture with children, there are plenty of opportunities to experience that culture in different ways. One really cool aspect of Hungarian culture we’ve been experiencing is the school system. Below is a graphic outlining the way Hungarian schools work. All public schools, starting with ovoda (preschool/kindergarten for ages 3-6), are free. When a Hungarian citizen enters college (főiskola) or university (egyetem), his/her first degree is free. Isn’t that awesome.
