Training programmes

The more than 300 training programmes cover almost every field of science and art. The reputation and popularity of the university is enhanced by the great number of foreign students attracted to us by the courses held in foreign languages, the various exchange programmes and the 17 colleges for advanced studies. There are approximately 1300 doctoral candidates studying in the framework of the PhD/DLA programmes, representing the highest level of education.

International relations

The University of Pécs set the internationalization of the institution as a strategic and development priority. As part of this the UP offers more then 50 full and several short training programmes in English as well as in other foreign languages. Beginning in June 2016, short training programmes await foreign students in the framework of a unique summer “trimester”. One of the main objectives of internationalization is to duplicate the number of foreign students studying at the University of Pécs before 2020, so the city of Pécs can become an even more pulsating intercultural centre in Eastern-Central Europe. Thanks to its extensive networks of partnership and exchange programmes with excellent universities in Europe, the United States and Asia, at the moment there are approximately 4000 foreign students studying at the University of Pécs, coming from more than 114 countries.

Teaching system

Due to the successful implementation of the Bologna education system, students can get involved in a dynamic, interoperable European higher education system. Instead of taking the traditional college and university courses, students first acquire an undergraduate (BA or BSc) degree, and then a Master's degree (MA or MSc). Those students who decided o dedicate some more years to science may apply for a doctoral training (PhD or DLA) as well.

Health care system

The UP Clinical Centre is one of the largest health care providers in Hungary. With its 29 health care units, nearly 3 000 staff members the centre have provided health care for several decades in Pécs and in the surrounding region. The Centre also plays an active role in the practical education of medical students and health care professionals. Working in close collaboration with the Medical School and the Faculty of Health Sciences, it combines high-level knowledge with modern medical techniques.
