University of Pecs

Welcome to the University of Pecs

Since King Louis the Great founded the first Hungarian University in Pecs in 1367 the city has functioned as an educational center of the country and the region with longer and shorter interruptions. With its 20,000 students and 500 different study programs the University of Pecs, the oldest university in Hungary, is one of the largest institutions of higher education in the country.

The University has conducted degree programs in English for more than 30 years and so has become one of the most internationalized universities in Hungary. We are proud to host over 4,000 international students coming from more than 100 countries of the world. With European Credit Transfer System (ECTS), credit and degrees earned in Hungary are transferable to other European institutions and vice versa. In addition to the diploma, students are also provided with a special supplement that is recognized all over the European Union.

The University of Pecs is located in the uniquely beautiful and lively city of Pecs – a proper, multi-campus university town – which was designated to be European Capital of Culture in 2010. The large international student population has become an essential part not only of the university but also of the city’s everyday life.

The university of Pecs has a uniquely wide range of international programs to offer for degree-seeking international students. At present all the ten Faculties offer various international degree programs, taught mostly in English but also in German. These programs can be characterized by their high academic quality and by their very competitive tuition fees.
