Policy Framework


There is no coherent framework in Hungary on the recognition of voluntary activities. The Act CCIV of 2011 On National Higher Education, however, opens up the possibility to include voluntary activities in one’s  studies:

'Students shall be granted the opportunity to enrol for optional course units specified in the operation and organisational manual of the institution up to 5% of the credits required for the award of the diploma (or have the alternative option of engaging in volunteer work)'.

The more exact regulations of accepting voluntary activities are on the level of the higher educational institutes.


Existing arrangements


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