ACADEMIC CALENDAR

 

The Budapest Semesters in Mathematics fall 2021 program will run only if there is confidence that we can do so safely and anticipate completion of the semester in-person and in-country. The BSM Directors are closely monitoring the Covid situation in Budapest, Hungary, Europe and the United States. 

BSM will determine at least 90 days before the first day of the program whether the fall 2021 semester will proceed in person (by May 2021). The schedule below is tentative and a complete re-opening plan will be provided soon.
