Student Visa from Nigeria to Hungary Description
International students who want to stay in
Hungary for more than 90 consecutive days and who are not EU citizens are required to apply for a long-term student visa to stay in the country.
Student visas requirements for Hungary vary, therefore it's important to inquire well in advance about the entry regulations which apply to your home country.

To receive a student visa for Hungary, you must first have an offer from a Hungarian university.

You can only apply for your student visa prior to your departure from the Hungarian Consulate or Embassy that has jurisdiction in your state or country of permanent residence.
Processing a visa usually takes around one month, but could be longer so make sure you apply as early as possible to avoid any unnecessary complications.

When the consulates requires an appointment, you may need to schedule it around 4 to 6 weeks in advance because appointment times are limited.

After the appointment, the visa processing time usually takes an additional 1 to 4 weeks.
You will need to apply for your residence permit within 15 days of arrival in Hungary.

This applies to both EU and non-EU citizens planning to stay in Hungary for longer than 90 days.

I checked them out, they really have affordable tuition fees. My only problem with them is the long duration before getting citizenship, you will have to spend a whooping 8yrs before applying for citizenship. That's like almost a decade.
That's the only discouragement I have about them for now.

Well, still researching, let's see how it goes God's willing.

Thanks again @ Op, you're doing an amazing job.

I have checked all the universities you listed as well as others from my online search. The least tuition I am seeing is €3200 & it is per semester NOT per year.
So for a 2year MSC, your tuition fee is €12800, that's not cheap bro
