Avicenna International College (AIC) started its activities in 1995 by providing short courses for the medical students studying in Budapest at Semmelweis University. Later a complete one-year pre-university program was designed for those who planned to complete their studies in any medically related filed in Hungary. This course was named “Avicenna Medical Foundation Program” or AMFP. Today, those students who complete AMFP with good scores are admitted to many European universities with medical programs in English, including in Hungary, Italy, Czech Republic, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Lituania, Latvia, UK, Serbia, and Russia among other countries.
Other foundation programs were added to the academic courses of AIC, namely Business Foundation Program (BFP), English Foundation Program (EFP), German Foundation Program (GFP), and preparatory programs for IELTS and BMAT examinations.
AIC is now an accredited educational center for NCUK in Europe outside the UK. Programs of NCUK including International Foundation Year (IFY), International Year One (IYOne), and Pre Master Program (PMP) are the qualifications that enable our students to secure admission to a UK partner university upon successful completion of a relevant NCUK program. IFY courses are offered in science, business and art streams.
AIC has also developed International High School Programs and has been accredited by the Hungarian Education Authority (OH) as a bi-lingual high school. Students can earn a Hungarian bi-lingual high school diploma called Erretsegi. This diploma is valid in the whole EU as a European degree. Our students command English at a native speaker level and learn Hungarian and German at the same time. AIC high school graduates can continue their studies in any Hungarian university in Hungarian or English.
Students can also earn their IGCSE and A-Level diploma. AIC is a recognized PEARSON and EDEXCEL center.
AIC is a Candidate IB school to provide IB Diploma Program (IBDP). AIC students can choose to complete their last two years of high school studies in the IB system and earn an internationally recognized IB diploma. From 2019 September, students can apply for Pre-IB program.
From its conception, AIC has been involved in social and cultural activities to contribute to the community and get our students and teachers involved in cultural and charity works. We have always respected the mother nature.
