FACULTAS COGNOSCENDI ACADEMY


Introduction


The Academy is a private educational institution situated in a central area of Budapest. It was established in 1998 by a non-profit foundation which also maintains it financially ever since from fees and donations. Its main mission is facilitating young people to gain qualifications competitive in the labour market, in the meantime acquiring knowledge useful for the society. Accordingly, the Academy places an equally distinguished emphasis on staff helpfulness and quality. In 2003 the quality assurance mechanism of the Academy was certified as one meeting requirements of ISO 9001: 2000 European Union standards. The principal of the Academy, Tibor Tóth has a MA in History and another in Social Politics, a PhD in History, and a Postgraduate Diploma in Educational Leadership.


Further education courses
This first faction of the Academy was launched in 1999. Currently it provides four officially recognised post-secondary full-time training courses (approximately at the Higher National Certificate level in Britain), namely "Marketing and advertising", "Business administration", "Logistic administration", and "Educational assistant".


Higher education courses
In 2004 a partnership agreement was officially made with the University of Debrecen, and by next year the Academy became the Budapest venue for its two year long European Studies postgraduate diploma course. From September 2008 a BA History course validated by the University will also be launched. Both of these courses are delivered on a part time basis by highly qualified academic staff of the University of Debrecen.


Secondary education courses
Having recognised the need to endow prospective students of higher and further education with high standards of background knowledge, a secondary education division of our Academy was launched in 2003. This four year long day and evening school specialises in preparing students for A-level exams in the areas of the social sciences and humanities, providing them a solid basis for post-secondary education in those areas (without neglecting other areas of useful knowledge). To achieve that aim, optional courses are provided for them, delivered predominantly by university lecturers in History, Law, Psychology, Hungarian Language and Literature. Our students also have the opportunity to learn three languages (English, German and French), to take ECDL courses and exams, and to be involved in extra-curricular creative arts and sports activities.
