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 programs.

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 they 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, President of the European Council, former president of the Republic of Poland.
