Requirements and evaluation of students’ performance:
Since Óbuda University students are to attend the lectures of the International Week as an intensive course; they are required to write a test on the topics our guest lecturers have addressed. Lecturers, therefore, are requested to create a test paper consisting of 10 multiple-choice questions with 4 possible answers based on their lectures and send them to the organisers.

You are invited to represent your institution with flyers and/or other promotional materials. This is an opportunity to promote academic exchanges in general and home institution in particular, to both our local and our Erasmus+ and other incoming students. These marketing materials will be hung on the walls of the campuses. Over this promotion we organise workshops for you to find together the adequate responses to the newest challenges rising on the international relations’ field.
