Policy Framework

 

There is no coherent framework for the recognition of volunteering in Hungary. However, the Act CCIV of 2011 on National Higher Education opens up the possibility of including voluntary activities in studies:

'(...) students shall have the opportunity to collect up to five percent of the total number of credits required for obtaining a diploma by taking optional courses, or by participating in voluntary activities in substitution for those courses.'

The more detailed regulations on the recognition of voluntary activities are at the level of the higher education institutions.

 

Existing arrangements

 

The only existing recognition tool is Youthpass which can be used to prove the participation in Erasmus+ voluntary activities.
