In the 2020/2021 academic year, the 6 737 students in the arts represented 2.7% of all enrolled at tertiary education. At BA level, students can choose from 19 higher educational programmes, while at MA level, 45 are available. These include 8 educational programmes – e.g., acting and painting –that stayed in their old one-tier system apart from the majority within the Bologna system
The latest development was introduced in chapter 2.1: three out of the five art universities have been transformed into nominally autonomous “public interest foundations”:
- Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design
- The Hungarian Dance University
- University of Theatre and Film Arts(SZFE)
The University of Fine Arts and the Franz Liszt University of Music remained as state institutions.
