Minister of Education and Culture of the Republic of Hungary makes a courtesy call


Dr. István HILLER, Ph.D., Minister of Education and Culture of the Republic of Hungary made a courtesy call on Vice President KOIZUMI Junji on Friday, September 18. Dr. Hiller was accompanied by the Hungarian ambassador extraordinary and plenipotentiary to Japan, and the adviser to the minister on his visit to the Suita Campus. The purpose of the Dr. Hiller's visit was to express gratitude for the establishment of the Department of Hungarian [Language] at Osaka University and to exchange opinions about the current situation, results of Hungarian instruction, and future exchange programs and cooperation.




Hungarian began being taught in the Foreign Language Department of Osaka University in April, 1993 (which at that time was Osaka University of Foreign Studies). At the time of the inauguration of Hungarian language study, valuable books about Hungary were donated through efforts of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and the Hungarian Embassy in Tokyo.

Osaka University has university exchange agreements with Eötvös Loránd University and Károli Gáspár University and also enjoys a flourishing exchange with Debrecen University.





After the courtesy call, in order to deepen the relationship, the party talked with students enrolled in the Department of Hungarian and three international students and researchers from the Republic of Hungary on the 2nd floor of the Icho Hall.
