Following the systemic change and the political restructuring at the beginning of the 1990s, previously established cultural relations, including higher educational relations, were reduced to minimum.

Development of Russian-Hungarian Relations
At the meeting in Moscow of Minister of Human Capacities, Zoltán Balogh and Russian Minister of Education and Science, Dmitry Livanov in April 2013, the Hungarian party indicated that 147 Russian students were then attending Hungarian higher educational institutions, including 54 students with state scholarships, although many more students could be educated in Hungary. Balogh also described the approval “Global Opening” state scholarship scheme, which was aimed primarily at the East. The Minister talked with appreciation about the activity of the Russian World Foundation, which has established a language and cultural centre in Hungary, and also suggested further talks on establishing Russian language centres in a number of Hungarian regions.

The relations with higher educational institutions, described as strong co-operation, were primarily based on Hungarian links with 12 Russian agricultural-educational institutions.
