    Just a note about studying in Hungary, I have been told first hand about racism in Hungary as well as neo-nazi and fascist organisations being a strong presence there. I implore people interested in studying there to do a lot of research first, especially regarding safety. I don’t want to be xenophobic as I met an Hungarian man who was very pleasant outside Hungary, but the racism there is allegedly rife and openly practised.
