Our Erasmus awards

E-Quality Award - 2005
E-Quality Award is the European Quality Label for decentralised projects and mobility activities carried out under the Socrates programme. The commitment of the institutions and the coordinators for the Programmes is crucial for the success of the European Educational Programmes. The E-Quality Label acknowledges quality in this field, thus strengthening the institutions´ commitment to the programme.

Outstanding Erasmus Coordinator - 2007
2007 – The 10th birthday of Erasmus in Hungary.  On this occasion10 Hungariancoordinators have received the award "Outstanding Erasmus Coordinator".Two of them were from our university: Mrs. Maria Dudas and Mrs. Livia Kokas.

International Cooperation Quality Award 2009
The national ‘Quality Award for International Cooperation’ aims to recognize educational and training projects of outstanding quality, implemented with the support of Lifelong Learning Programme (LLP).

The 2 millionth Erasmus student - 2009

The benchmark of the 2 millionth Erasmus student was reached during the academic year 2008/09.To celebrate this landmark achievement, every participating country in the Erasmus programme was requested to nominate students, who participated in an Erasmus mobility period for studies or placements during the year. The Erasmus statistics are collected in each country separately as the Erasmus mobility scheme is decentralised, therefore it is impossible to say whom exactly the 2 millionth really was. Therefore, the European Commission opted to select 31 students, one from each of the participating countries, to represent their respective country as the 2 000 000th Erasmus student. The booklet contains the testimonials of these 31 outstanding students, who have shown their excellence in enriching their academic career by studying or doing a traineeship abroad and are listed by the protocol order.

We are proud of our student Németh Gergő, who was selected from our university (The predecessor of Óbuda University was the Budapest Tech) to represent Hungary.
