AN INCLUSIVE COMMUNITY FOR ALL HUNGARIANS WHO ARE
PAST SCHOLARS & GRADUATES
OF BRITISH UNIVERSITIES
The Hungarian Association of British Alumni (HABA) is a non-profit organisation that caters to all UK university alumni in Hungary since 1994, in close cooperation with the British Embassy in Budapest and university-specific alumni groups. The Association was originally established for those who received scholarships to study in the UK, most importantly Chevening scholars. Now, it is open to alumni from all UK universities. Our members come from a wide variety of professional backgrounds, from energy industry to banking, academia, technology, marketing, law, and public administration. We have an active membership of approximately 100 people. In the past 20 years, HABA has been active in organising lectures, talks and social events, and undertook projects like the Visegrád4 project of knowledge sharing. Our Patron is Her Majesty's Ambassador to Hungary, HE Ian Lindsay OBE.
Our mission is to create an interactive platform for UK university alumni residing in Hungary. As the former association of Hungarian Chevening scholars, we aim to provide our members with social and networking opportunities, as well as acting as an advocate of British culture and values. We believe that having studied in the UK during our formative years has given us strong values to share. We are certain that it is not only a common nostalgic background, but has great unutilised potential.
We organise four main events in a year that are either formal or informal opportunities to meet old and new HABA members. Besides these established thematic occasions, we also provide our members with one-off exclusive programmes and joint events in partnership with university-specific alumni organisations such as LSE Alumni Association Hungary and Cambridge - Oxford Alumni Club of Hungary. Registration is compulsory for all of these events and information is provided in due time. If you would like to get notified about our upcoming, please subscribe to our mailing list here.
