    1. Dear farah,

      As it is written in the post, and in the Official call (link above), they have extended the previous deadline. Now the deadlines are 16 December if you require a visa for Hungary, and 16 January, for those who do not require visa. Which means that if you do not need visa for Hungary you still have time to apply.
      If you have further questions, please direct them at the organizers of the course. I am sure they will be able to help you with your concerns.

      Kind regards
