University of Pécs
History and objectives
When it opened its doors in 1367, the University of Pécs was the first institution of its kind in Hungary. Over a tumultuous six-and-a-half centuries, it has been dissolved and reopened by various authorities, but the series of modern incarnations has been on-going since 1912.
The university has been rapidly developing and internationalising. Students can take advantage of a wide and varied selection of almost 70 programmes covering business, social and natural sciences, IT, engineering and medicine. There are all taught in English, which lends the university an international feel. Indeed, there are more than 4,500 foreign students from 114 countries enrolled today.
Prospective learners who cannot commit to a full degree are welcome to visit one of the summer schools or look into a semester or two on the various scholarship schemes available. This way, they will still get a taste of Pécs: a small and friendly place to live, but one full of interesting things to do and see thanks to its time as a European Capital of Culture in the year 2010.
