The ELTE Bibó István College for Advanced Studies was founded by law students in Budapest in 1983 and is based on the English College model. The foundation is based on two factors: to enrich the legal education of its members, especially in the field of human rights, and to contribute to a more vigorous Hungarian democracy. The College has stood on the basis of the principle of direct democratic participation ever since its foundation: the non-student leader and the Student Committee are directly elected by the membership of the College.
The principles guiding the College are: professionalism, consciousness, indipendence, initiative, responsibility, self-government, transparency, equality and community, which are developed in the three pillars, according to which the College organises its activities: Professionalism, Community and Social Responsibility.
