Hungarian higher education continues to struggle with serious dropouts, according to a study by the Office of Education (OH), a third of young people who start their careers at university and colleges do not reach graduation, but in some subjects the repetition rate is more than 50-60 percent, wrote Magyar sat down on the Sabbath.
The newspaper added that the biggest “risk” was information technology and lawyers.
The smaller the college, the more successful the students.
More than a third of the three-year undergraduate courses are completed without passing. Dropouts in IT, Engineering and Science are very important, and the situation is noticeably better in the arts.
The chances of dropping out are higher in correspondence and distance learning than in a full-time job.
There are more men leaving the system than women.
In the case of non-split five-year courses, the proportions are similar: a third of the studies end in failure. Most students drop out of law training and the least drop out from architecture and general practitioners.
Many give up almost directly: 8-12% of students in non-segmented courses do not complete one semester, and another third on university leave after a maximum of two semesters.
More of those who study for free are graduating.
Students complete master’s programs more successfully than undergraduates. Special education and psychology are particularly good, with only 3-6 percent of dropouts in the latter field.
