Milestone Institute

  • Admissions are now closed for the academic year 2016/17.
  • Our mission is to act as a national centre for nurturing, launching and bringing home talent. Rather than strike out on their own, we seek to create a community of bright young minds who want to broaden their horizon by studying abroad. Our hope is that they will return, so that Hungary as a whole will benefit from the experience and skills they have gained. In the last four years, we have thus prepared nearly 300 students for leading English-speaking universities.
  • The Milestone Institute offers a 4-year preparatory programme for studying abroad, tailor-made to students' needs, with entry possible in any year. If you are taking your Érettségi in 2017, our Senior year is the right option for you. For those taking the Érettségi in 2018, we offer the Junior year, and for students aged 14 and above the Freshman and Sophomore years.
  • To find out more about the Milestone Institute, its programmes, and studying abroad in general, register to attend one of our Open Days:
    • Every Thursday 18:00
    • Every Saturday 15:00 and 16:00


HeadofMentoring1Welcome to the Milestone Institute website, designed to answer your questions about the programmes we offer, as well as our broader mission and values. Whether you are a student looking to establish the foundations for your university studies, a parent supporting your child in finding his or her path, or a teacher helping your students continue their education in the best institution possible, the Milestone Institute is the right port of call.
  We know it's a long road, as we ourselves have followed it. The establishment of the Milestone Institute was the result of many a conversation amongst our team, a group of people who experienced both the benefits and challenges of studying abroad. Certain themes emerged as universal, from the importance of personalised tuition and independent study to the difficulty of going it alone in a foreign environment. By and large, we essentially drew the same conclusions.
