Welcome to the University of Pécs!
I am glad that you have taken the time to take a closer look at what the University of Pécs can offer you. On these pages you can read more about our study programmes, student life and much more. I do hope that you will find this website useful in learning more about our University.
Today, the University of Pécs is one of the largest institutions of higher education in Hungary with the widest spectrum of teaching and research activities that is known and recognised even beyond our borders. Our University represents and accepts as its own a great tradition going back to the Middle Ages, while at the same time it also plays an active role in the task of institutionalising new knowledge that is aimed both at the present and the future.
With our more than 300 different study programmes our primary goal is to ensure high-level teaching and research in every possible area of study, assist the almost 20,000 students studying here as much as possible during their student life, organize study abroad scholarships and maintain and improve the quality of university services, libraries and clubs. One of our main tasks is to transfer knowledge and positive view of life to the young generation.
During their several years of study at the University our students are introduced to the secrets and depths of the branch of science they have chosen to study, while they also have the chance to meet other international and Hungarian students majoring in other areas, participate in a number of different programmes organized for them by the faculties or the University, and hopefully they also manage to find some time to experience the very active cultural life of the city of Pécs.
