Recommend or get recommended by a friend – both of you will get 15% discount from a semester’s tuition fee! 

How much discount can I get?

In case you bring us more students, you will receive even more discount: 15% per every new student. More recommendations are worth you more: you can even get a 75% discount! 

(This means a maximum of 5 recommendations.)

Who can be eligible?

  • Each METU student (international and Hungarian) who recruits new international students. 
  • Each recruited incoming international student.

How can I claim the discount?

The new incoming student should indicate the coupon code sent to the referrer METU student while filling out their application profile

When will I get the discount?

If you were recruited by a METU student, you'll get the tuition fee discount in the 3rd active semester of your studies. 

If you have recruited a student, you'll get the discount in the following active semester after the referred friend has enrolled with an active status. So, if they start their studies in the Fall semester, you will receive your own discount for the following Spring semester.

In case you are not an active student by the time you could claim your tuition fee discount – either because you finish your studies or because your student status is terminated - the discount will be given to the new incoming student in the form of a 15% discount off their 3rd active semester’s tuition fee.

General regulations of discounts:

  • If students enroll in a passive semester, they lose the allocated discount for that given semester. This means that if students are eligible for a discount in a later semester (because that given discount is valid for two or more semesters), they will not be able to use that discount due to being on a passive semester.
  • The maximum amount of discounts can not exceed 25% per semester. The ’Refer a friend’ and the MNB discounts are excluded from this regulation, which means that in these cases the 25% tuition fee discount can be exceeded. Please note that applicants entitled to EU fees may also receive up to 25% discount.
  • If students apply for two programs simultaneously, they get the applicable discount(s) for the one that has a lower tuition fee. If this is not possible due to technical restraints, then they get the applicable discount(s) on the program for which they enroll sooner.
