During the early seventeenth century, the Reformed church in Hungary and Transylvania became increasingly involved in international connections between Calvinist pastors, professors, and students. Hungary and Transylvania could not boast a Protestant university of its own and so, whilst local academies were being developed, student ministers were supported to travel to universities abroad. By the early seventeenth century, hundreds of Hungarian students were involved in a major peregrination to western Europe. This peregrinatio academica was supported by the patronage of Transylvania's princes, Hungarian nobles, and town councils. It was hoped that the expense of sending student ministers to be educated abroad, in places such as England, would soon be repaid on their return home through their service to the Reformed church in local colleges and schools, and in parishes across the region.
