Hungarian university gets go-ahead

THE JÁNOS Seley Hungarian University in the southern Slovak town of Komárno will start operations in one year as a Slovak-accredited institution, cabinet ministers agreed on August 22.

The decision must still be approved by parliament but it is believed that the first Slovak university providing education to the country's Hungarian minority in their mother tongue will open its doors to about 300 undergraduates in Autumn next year.

The university is expected to have three faculties - teacher training, economy, and theology.

The institution is currently accredited in Hungary as a branch of the Budapest University of Economic Sciences and Public Administration. It also cooperates with the Budapest University of Technology and Economics.
