Make Hungary &
the University of Pannonia your study abroad destination

Since the founding of the predecessor of the University of Pannonia in 1949, the world has changed significantly, but the prestigious institution, defying challenges, has remained a determinative factor of the socio-economic life of the region, as well as an internationally recognised higher education institution.

Our university is characterised by outstanding academic excellence and high-quality usable knowledge, and we are the best in the country in terms of research and development output per teacher.

At the same time, we pay special attention to the formation and preservation of communities along our traditions in a family-like environment, and the preparation process for the Veszprém
European Capital of Culture 2023 programme offers new opportunities and experiences for all citizens of our institution.

The University of Pannonia offers internationally recognized education at five faculties and three knowledge centers in addition to its headquarters, and continues to cultivate the most modern fields of science through its doctoral schools. Veszprém, where the main campus is seated, has won the European Capital of Culture for 2023 programme. Campuses can be also found in Kőszeg, Nagykanizsa and Zalaegerszeg.

International applicants have the opportunity to study at our University with the
Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship programme.

Due to the talent management and having a background of a strong scientific research institution, the university essentially functions as a research center in several disciplines. At national level, our university possesses the 7th place on the list of the international institutional research ranking of excellence ’Ranking WEB of Universities’.

One of the defining elements of University of Pannonia is the collaborative research projects conducted in strategic partnerships with the actors of economic life. The most prime example of these, is the Institute of Petroleum and Coal Technology, established together with MOL in 2009, and the “Sustainability Based on Circular Economy Competence Center”, launched in 2020 in collaboration with MOL and Hidrofilt Kft.

Student Life

Besides studying, there are plenty of opportunities to relax and unwind. It is not only festivals and events along the shores of Lake Balaton that are interesting, but the ones organised on campus are also worth a try. Some of these are: (Check out the faculties brochures for detailed programmes!)


1969 may remind some people of the year of the moon landing, but for the majority of the local students of Veszprém, this year is the first year when the University Days of Veszprém (VEN) were organized! The country's first series of University Days are held every two years and have become the most important hallmark of student life at the University of Pannonia, with a campaign lasting for several months. 4 teams of students competing in different fields, own concerts, high-quality shows, a parade that mobilises the whole town and the election of the Student Rector of the University of Pannonia at the end of the event.


The biggest festival of Zalaegerszeg students is the spring festival called ZEN. Cultural programmes, sports and cooking competitions, concerts are waiting for the interested visitors and students of the higher education institutions of Zalaegerszeg.


A traditional way to get to know your colleagues better, students from other year groups and your lecturers at an event where, after the formal elements, you can enjoy the fun of the Faculties Ball. (Occasionally, three different events are organized at the same week, in which case it'sa good idea to pull up one's socks - of course the more elegant one!)


Freshers' camp is one of the most influential events of your years in higher education that you can attend before you even start your studies! Our campuses are loved by students for their small-town friendly atmosphere and active student life. To get the most out of these, it's essential to develop friendships that will last for years, and for this Freshers' Camp can be a great first step! Good weather, great atmosphere, University of Pannonia...

What else do you need?

FRESHERS’ BALL - Stork's Ball, how we call it...

The stork is a migratory bird that flies to warmer climates when the cold weather arrives. At the University of Pannonia of course it is not the case, the decorated lobbies create quite a hot atmosphere every year to make the freshmen, and older students feel at home, recite the Oath of Freshmen and to get ready for partying until the morning - all dressed up for the event.
