VISA
According to our experience, candidates who have at least 6500 Euros in their bank accounts can obtain visas more easily, of course this is not a definite rule. In Hungary, if we say that an international student’s costs average of 650 Euro per month (food, accommodation etc.) and count education period as 10 months, so calculation must be 650 x 10 = 6500 Euro. Applicants who cannot show reasonable amounts of money at their bank accounts are not recommended to apply for a visa.  This rule is not only for Hungary, applies to all students who will study outside of their home country. Consulates of other countries also want to see the same amount of money in students’ bank account.
