Career orientation Open Day at the Rákóczi College

For the second time this year, an open day was held at the Ferenc Rákóczi II Transcarpathian Hungarian College on 19 May. The aim of the event was to give the visitors an insight into the life of the institution and its units, as well as to inform them about the admission procedure for higher education in 2023.

The institution held its first Open Day on 10 March. At that time, prospective students and their parents had the opportunity to get a glimpse of the institution’s life and explore its structural units. They could find out more about the opportunities offered by the departments from the heads of the individual departments and from the lecturers.

On the second Open Day, the attendees were welcomed by Ildikó Orosz, the president of Rákóczi College, followed by a joint recitation of this year’s slogan: The college is waiting for you!

“I encourage everyone to come and have a look around, to experience many interesting things and to come back during the admission period, because the college is waiting for everyone”,

said István Csernicskó, rector of the Rákóczi College.

Attila Tóth, Secretary of the Admission Committee, then introduced the representatives of the departments and presented the day’s schedule.
