Bank information

FAO, SCYP, Diaspora and Stipendium Hungaricum Scholarship holders have to open a Hungarian bank account upon arrival. For other students it is optional.

You can choose any bank for your Hungarian financial needs. OTP bank has mobile bank service available on site at GÖDÖLLŐ CAMPUS on the Orientation Week in September:

OTP JUNIOR account package
OTP SMART account package


Required documents required for opening a bank account:

  • Hungarian cell phone number
  • Student status certificate
  • Copy of passport and visa/residence permit
  • Address card stamped and signed by the Immigration Office

After receiving your bank account number, please record it in your NEPTUN under

  • Finances / Settings / Add bank account number / Save.

WHEN YOU FINISH YOUR STUDIES AND LEAVE HUNGARY, DO NOT FORGET TO CLOSE YOUR BANK ACCOUNT! (Try not to make any transactions on the last day, because it will make closing difficult. The bank will pay you the balance in cash)
