Foreign university falls foul of new Hungarian law

Hungarian flag flying on flagpoleThe Hungarian parliament has given the green light to legislation that could mean the closure of a popular foreign university campus.

The country is exerting tighter regulation over its foreign seats of higher education, and now requires that they must have a campus in their country of origin.

The Central European University in Budapest is the only institution to fall foul of the new regulations. It is registered in New York, but has no single country of origin.
