Higher education at university level generally consists of a course, usually four to six years in duration, which confers  the higher education qualification of Oklevél/Egyetemi Oklevél (University-level Degree) after the defence of a thesis and successful completion of the final examination.

This qualification - which may also be called "Master's"- entitles holders to practise a profession or to continue higher education studies and obtain a Szakirányú Továbbképzési Oklevél (Post-university Further Specialization Degree) in one to three years or to pursue doctoral studies.
