“We live in the line of the rapid fire of moving images. They are raining down on us from every possible place: movie and television screens, computer monitors, mobile displays, presentations and advertisements... They entertain, inform and control us. But who is going to invent, design, edit and record the images of the future in a creative, smart and artistic way? This might be just you. And this is what you learn to do at the Film and Media Studies program.”

“They say: “Success is a choice and it’s yours to make.” Are you one of these people to think like that? Then we have something in common.  As a current student at Budapest Metropolitan University, I was clearly taught that the course you choose isn't what you study, it’s what you live. Here I have the chance to build a balance between my academic and social life and I have met so many nice people in the international community.Whether if they’re locals or from the parts of the world that you didn't even hear before, you’ll always be cheerful to meet these people. Apart from liking the fact that teachers would feel like your tutors during the classes and your friends afterwards the school, it makes sense of calling this atmosphere a family. Being a student here has given me the opportunity to equip myself with all the necessary skills and knowledge to further my career anywhere in the world. I thought I was only going to be a university student abroad as I enrolled to Metropolitan, but now I see I became an individual who delightedly calls this place, home.”
Vedat Direk student of our Film and Media Studies BA program from Cyprus
