Pázmány Péter Catholic University
People-oriented, high quality education, classical knowledge, and innovation – that is what Pázmány Péter Catholic University offers its students. These have formed the cornerstone of Hungary’s oldest continuously operating university ever since it was established in 1635 in the city of Trnava and ever since it was re-established in 1992. With its multi-faceted education system, the University serves both to convey the traditional knowledge and values necessary for the development of the human personality in its entirety, and to develop our information society and adapt it to human fulfilment.
Our teachers are known and respected experts in their fields. Due to the University’s beneficial teacher to student ratio, we are always able to promote individual performance, enabling students to develop a direct, helping relationship with teachers. Our institution’s good reputation bolsters a good opportunity for success on the job market.
We fundamentally strive to provide training that supports everyday life, but also support students in learning and recognizing the related theoretical knowledge and relationships. For decades, our range of disciplines has included the disciplines of theology, legal sciences, humanities, social sciences, information technology, and bionics. In addition to preserving our traditions, we also strive for continuous renewal. Our domestic and international cooperation, our internationally recognized research, and our participation in partner school networks offer serious possibilities in these fields, and our mobility programs are becoming increasingly popular.
The mentality of our Budapest-centric University is fundamentally determined by our Catholic ties and intrinsic human and social values. Our fundamental approach consists of respect for each other, building intergenerational professional and friendly communities (from secondary schools to alumni), camaraderie, and helping each other. Our social programs draw more and more students each year.
The offer of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences encompasses the wide spectrum of social sciences – from psychology and teacher training through languages to political sciences. The Faculty of Law and Political Sciences introduces students to the fundamental norms of human coexistence, from Roman law to today’s reality. The education provided by the Faculty of Information Technology and Bionics is referred to as the science of the third millennium. Information technology, life sciences, bionics, and engineering will all help us achieve a better quality of life. The Faculty of Theology offers students the perspective of realizing the totality of the human personality by growing in faith. All students are given the possibility of experiencing the Catholic faith at the University and participating in the related programs.
Knowledge is transferred in a people-centric environment, always taking into account the capabilities, skills, and needs of students. The University always bears in mind the importance of the high quality of science and education – even in an international comparison. We are convinced that these internal values are responsible for allowing the degrees that we issue to hold their value and for the favorable reception of our graduates on the labor market.
