"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit."

Tradition and Innovation

The University of Pécs, founded among the earliest universities in Europe, is striving towards promoting the capacity building of Hungary and the European Union in the fields of research, academics, arts and health care. The University intends to play a key role in its region in terms of intellectual output, the well-being of citizens and economic development.

We are committed to establishing an environment, where all forms of outside the box thinking and creativity may thrive on a wide scale of basic and applied sciences and arts. Our priority is to strengthen university-centred innovation and research to improve the quality of life of citizens.

We wish to achieve our goals by educating and training outstanding professionals, scholars and artists, bringing our brightest minds home, combining traditional and innovative elements of scientific research, and building an outstanding and accepting community at our University.
