The creation of the University of Pécs was first initiated by King Louis the Great in 1367. Today, the University of Pécs is one of the most prestigious institutions in the country, where there are ten faculties, which cover the full spectrum of higher education to provide high quality, comprehensive training. In addition to the education and research activities, medical treatment is a crucial activity of ours; the Clinical Centre takes care of not only of the region’s outpatients and in-patients, but in many areas has national-level duties, too.

Each year, the University of Pécs participates in the ranking of international higher education institutions and is doing well. We strive to further improve our perception in all areas.

We have and will put great emphasis on the quality of education, as well-prepared students mean the best publicity for us. In this spirit the continuous development of human resources and infrastructure conditions is our top priority. We make efforts to provide our students with a wide variety of knowledge, therefore we offer support for a significant proportion of our students to participate in a variety of internship and exchange programmes in recognized institutions of Europe and other developed countries. So that we can increase the level of education we use state of the art technology and invite the finest professors. We have taken our motto from Luis Pasteur: "chance favours the prepared mind". It is most pleasing, that the number of students has stabilized over the last decade, whereas the number of foreign students has grown significantly. Not only is the University of Pécs a prestigious institution, it is also student-friendly; we would like our student to study for achievement and have a good time as well.

The PTE conducts internationally recognized research work. We do our best to make our university an optimal choice for a workplace to our talented researchers, not just a starting point. We encourage our esteemed colleagues with internal grant schemes for an even better performance. In the research centre named after János Szentágothai there are cutting-edge technologies, equipment and tools at our researchers’ and students’ disposal. The main research profile of our University is basic scientific research, however, via applied research we continuously develop our industrial relationships, too.

Within the framework of the Modern Cities Programme, spectacular modernization is taking place at our university. In this context not only are there construction of new buildings and renovation of existing ones, but these activities are parallel with human resources training. The Modern Cities Programme was created in cooperation with the city of Pécs.

Pécs is an attractive, friendly little town and human in scale; not only does it host, but also serves like home for our university citizens. The University is the city’s dominant institution, besides the students almost all inhabitants of Pécs feel connected to it. The presence of the large number of international students from all over the world and the Mediterranean atmosphere makes Pécs a pleasant, busy university town with so much life. The University of Pécs however, is not restricted to the county seat of Baranya, there is an independent faculty in the town of Szekszárd and there is a network of training centres all over the Transdanubian region, beyond the borders even.

The Rector’s leadership invites efficient cooperation of the various faculties and employees, encourages disciplined work of our students and calls on the support of those with an interest in its work.

Description of the Program

Obese people have to fight several diseases that are in connection with their weight (cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, cancer). If you have the drive to help them, dietetics will provide you with the required knowledge. Healthy eating – and thus the knowledge of a dietitian – is essential to prevent and successfully treat several diseases, as medications or a surgery rarely provide a complete solution. Patients are often forced to stop eating their favorite treats, and a dietitian may largely contribute to the patients’ treatment, balance and well-being by offering enjoyable but healthy dietary options.
