Program Description:
Budapest PRIMO - Chain Bridge
If you are interested in learning about business and marketing in a beautiful winter setting, you could study an exciting short course at ESSCA Business School in Budapest

As part of the PRIMO first-year learning abroad programs, first-year undergraduate ANU students can apply for a grant of either AUD $1,000 or $2,000 to assist them with the tuition and living costs of this opportunity.
A pair of Doing Business and Management and Postmodern Marketing in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) courses are available for first year students to study at ESSCA’s Budapest campus in Hungary over the Australian Summer (European Winter) break, from the 23rd of January 2018 to the 5th of February. The courses do not have any prerequisites, and are open to students from any degree with an interest in business and marketing. As well as studying, students engage in multiple cultural and corporate visits across Hungary, making this a unique credit-bearing experience.
Budapest is considered to be one of Europe’s most beautiful capitals, lining both banks of the Danube river. It is also one of the largest cities in the EU, and a powerhouse of business and finance. Full of stunning architecture, amazing cuisine and centuries of history around every corner, Budapest is a perfect introduction to Central Europe.


Under the ANU PRIMO first-year learning abroad programs, successful applicants will be automatically considered for one of the available grants. The program is funded through the Vice Chancellor’s Coursework Travel Grant.
To be eligible for one of the VC Travel Grants, you must:
  • Be in your first year of undergraduate study at the time of the application;
  • Seek credit approval from an academic advisor of your College to be eligible for the grant. 

First year students are considered to be students who commenced undergraduate university study in 2017 and/or who have completed 48 units or less at the start of the program. Later-year students are welcome to apply for the program, but cannot be considered for one of the grants.

Academic credit

Students will receive 7.5 ECTS from ESSCA, equivalent to 6 ANU units. This credit count towards a student's degree at ANU. Students receiving a grant must be eligible to receive credit for their studies.

Fees and Grants

To give students the best chance to undertake this program, domestic and international students have different arrangements for tuition fees. Please see the relevant arrangement below.

Please note that the grant will not cover the entire cost of the program. You will need to consider airfares, tuition fees, accommodation, visa fees etc. For more information about costs and what’s included, have a look at the program fees outline.

Domestic Students:

Domestic students are sent as exchange students, meaning that they pay tuition to ANU and not to ESSCA. This tuition is charged in the same way as other courses and can be deferred onto HECS. Students then pay ESSCA a fee of 1,100 Euros for accommodation, cultural visits, and course materials. Grants for domestic students are worth AUD $2,000.

International Students:

International students are sent as study abroad students, meaning they pay tuition to ESSCA and not to ANU. This results in a lower tuition fee than if the student went on exchange. Students pay ESSCA a total fee of 1,800 Euros for tuition, accommodation, cultural visits, and course materials. Grants for international students are worth AUD $1,000.

Application process

There are two simple steps to applying for a PRIMO program:
  • Tell us in about 150 words how this opportunity will enrich or enhance your studies at ANU and how this opportunity will benefit you personally.
  • Seek approval from your academic college to receive ANU credit for this program.
    • You can do so using the "PRIMO College Approval Form" available in the learning content section of the online application for this program. Students must upload the signed "PRIMO College Approval Form" with this application to be considered.
If a student's college does not approve academic credit for this experience they cannot be considered as an eligible applicant for grants. For students with more than one college, only one college needs to give approval.

Applications opened on 14 August 2017 and will close on 9 October 2017 and you should first apply directly to ANU Global Programs.

If you are selected by ANU Global Programs to take part in the course, you will then have to submit an application to ESSCA before 30 November 2017.
