Study abroad in Pécs!

The first University in Pécs was established by Louis I of Hungary in 1367, the letter patent issued by pope Urban V, similar to that of the university of Vienna. The university existed for a few decades, then split into two schools, one of jurisprudence and one of theology in the course of the 15th century. The university of Pecs was completely discontinued during Ottoman occupation, then restarted in 1785 by Joseph II moving the Royal Academy from Gyor to Pecs. In 1802 the Royal Academy was moved back to Gyor by the order of Francis I, and higher education was discontinued in Pecs until 1833, when the bishop of Pecs in conjunction with the city senate founded the Pecs Academy, comprising a legal and a philosophical faculty.

The modern University of Pécs was founded in 1912, and was originally located in Bratislava (Pozsony in Hungarian). Since after the WWI Bratislava was no more part of Hungary, in 1921 the university moved to Pécs, where it remained to this day. In 1951 the medical faculty was separated from the university offering a good opportunity to study medicine, and till 2000 was a separate institution. The university was renamed Janus Pannnonius University in 1982. The present University of Pécs was created on January 1, 2000, via the merger of Janus Pannonius University, the Medical University of Pécs and the Illyés Gyula Teacher Training College of Szekszárd.

With its ten faculties the University of Pécs plays a significant role not just in Hungarian higher education but also in European higher education. That is why lot of students from around Europe goes to study abroad in Pecs. The University offers a broad range of training and degree programmes, ensuring high-level knowledge-transfer and research. With its more than 30,000 students and nearly 2,000 teaching and research staff the impact of the University of Pécs extends well beyond the borders of Pécs.

In September 2006, a modern higher educational training system initiated by the European Union was introduced in Hungary too, known as the Bologna process, which offers students an opportunity to pursue their studies in a dynamically developing, convertible European higher educational system. Opening a new perspectives to study abroad in Pecs. The traditional college and university level training programmes were replaced by a three-tier system consisting of a basic training programme (BA, BSc), a master level programme (MA, MSc), and doctoral level (PhD, DLA) programme.

In order to meet the demands and the needs of the surrounding community for continuing education, the University of Pécs has started to develop its programmes within the area of life-long learning. In addition, the University attaches great importance to training in the colleges for advanced studies. Nearly every Faculty offers training in the framework of this organisation that encourages students to pursue their own research.

Due to the credit system, first introduced in Hungary here in Pécs, an increasing number of Hungarian students participate in international study programmes as an integral part of their education, and likewise, an increasing number of international students and researchers come to the university to study abroad in pecs and to conduct research every year. Therefore, the University of Pecs continuously works on expanding and improving its co-operation with other universities and international research institutions and is already part of a large network at different levels.
