History and Objectives

The modern University of Pécs, founded on January 1, 2000 through the merger of Janus Pannonius University, the Medical University of Pécs and the Illyés Gyula Teacher Training College of Szekszárd, is committed to endorsing and popularising the idea of lifelong education. With its ten faculties the university offers a broad range of training and degree programs that are aimed at training well-qualified experts with a wide intellectual horizon, ranging from higher educational professional training programs to undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral degree programs. Our primary goal is to ensure high-level teaching and research, but ample emphasis is also given to programs unique in Hungarian higher education (such as The Dancing University or The Open University) that provide an opportunity to our teachers, staff, present and former students to develop their knowledge and education extensively as well as strengthen their ties to the university.
