7622 Pécs, Vasvári Pál utca 4.

The University of Pécs, the oldest university in Hungary, was founded in 1367. Today it is one of the largest Institutions of Higher Education in the country and offers a wide spectrum of courses to some 20,000 students in approximately 500 different study programmes. The highly qualified academic staff are a guarantee that students are provided with the most up-to-date knowledge to the highest, internationally recognised standards and so earn a degree which is highly competitive in today’s labour market.

The University has conducted degree programmes in English for more than 40 years and so has become one of the most internationalized universities in Hungary. We are proud to host more than 5000 international students – who come from more than 130 countries world-wide. The university offers more than 90 degree programmes and preparatory courses for international students taught in English and German.


The University of Pécs is located in the uniquely beautiful, vibrant and lively city of Pécs – a proper, multi-campus university town – which was designated to be the European Capital of Culture in 2010. The large international student population has become essential part not only the university but of the city’s everyday life as well. In 2017 the city of Pécs has received the UNESCO Global Learning City Award.


“Pécs is a metaphor for Europe. Because if we agree that the main landmarks of a European town are the Market Square, the Town Hall, the University, and the Cathedral, this town with the oldest Hungarian University, with five churches in its name, is worthy of being a metaphor for Europe many times over.”


Donald Tusk - Honoris Causa Doctor of the University of Pécs, former president of the European Council, former president of the Republic of Poland
