Nomen est omen - In the heart of Budapest for 140 years

Hunfalvy is a secondary school with great traditions dating back to 140 years. Since its foundation it has been providing training in economics and trade in Buda only a few steps away from the bank of the Danube near the Széchenyi Chain Bridge.




Language teaching

In the school five languages are taught, three of which (English, German and French) in the bilingual system and there is special language teaching in Japanese and Russian. In the previous school year 139 of the school leavers passed 151 (!) language examinations, mostly at C1 level.


Professional training

Besides a high level academic and language tuition there is professional vocational training in economics in the school. In the first two years the students study basic economics and law and set up their own business venture, which makes it possible for them to get acquainted with the basic terminology of economics and the world of work.  


International relations

The school has relations with 20 secondary schools in 15 countries of Europe. We collaborate either in EU projects, or the students travel to a school abroad every school year within the framework of several decade-long student exchange partnership programmes.
