The Program is open to undergraduate students of all disciplines with a sufficient personal maturity to adapt to a new environment and to a foreign society. Consequently, any undergraduate student of a University or College of good standing, who by the time of the start of the SysNeuro Summer Program has completed the first two semesters of his/her studies, is eligible to enrol in the Program.

Students from any academic background are welcome, however, familiarity with one or more of the following disciplines is likely most conducive to completing a successful study in the framework of SysNeuro: computer science and mathematics; natural sciences; biology; neurobiology; medicine.

Students from other disciplines should contact the Program before application time in order to discuss the compatibility of their academic background and the expected benefits to be derived from completing the Program.

The selection of students takes place on a competitive basis, with previous academic results constituting the sole selection criteria. The general minimum entry requirement at application time is a US grade point average (GPA) of 3.0. Students with a GPA lower than 3.0 should inquire with the Directors on the possibility of a waiver.

The Program operates on agreements with various Colleges and provides different services as per agreement. This is a fully tuition driven program and most students are expected to fully cover their own tuition costs.

Tuition fee and accommodation: $5300.

Estimated living costs for the two months of the program: $1200.

SysNeuro students get full Semmelweis U transcripts (US compatible) directly acceptable at their sending (home) universities.

Students’ home universities typically require the achievement of credits as result of a study abroad stay. In the case of doubt, the acknowledgement of earned credits by the students’ home university must be negotiated in the application phase. BSCS Systems Neuroscience students are properly enrolled at Semmelweis U at the time of their studies in Budapest.

Thus the SysNeuro credit system is identical with the credit system of Semmelweis University, which in turn strictly follows the ECTS (European Credit Transfer System). For official ECTS information, please consult this link:

http://ec.europa.eu/education/tools/docs/ects-guide_en.pdf

In terms of credits numbers, BSCS Systems Neuroscience offers 18 ECTS credits, detailed as follows. Students can obtain 1.2 credits for one contact hour. The 8 courses (7 Neuroscience and 1 Central European Culture), each is consisted of 20+3 hours of lectures+practice, equals 16 credits and an additional 2 credits can be obtained for the Hungarian language course.

Every BSCS Systems Neuroscience student attending at least 90% of the classes and meeting the requirements of each examination receives a Semmelweis transcript as well as a Certificate from the Department of Anatomy, Histology and Embryology, Semmelweis University demonstrating the duration and other specifics of the courses attended and also the grades obtained.
