CENTRAL EUROPEAN UNIVERSITY  
Welcome to these CEU pages and I hope you will enjoy exploring our site, or even come to visit us in person. Here you can learn about CEU’s teaching, research and policy aimed at offering world-class education -- while at the same time the university remains a small community in which almost everyone knows each other by their first-name. Here you will find that the Rector’s Office is open at any time for any member of the university community, or for visitors, to walk in for a chat. As you begin your exploration of CEU and its academic offering I would like to share with you my conviction that the central task of the university in the 21st century is to educate concerned citizens. In the past, academics have often been criticized for withdrawing to the ivory towers of their respective disciplines. But today the world has irrevocably moved from local universalism to global contextualism. That means that many of the most pressing problems facing humanity today cannot be seen from the Western point of view only, nor in terms of one discipline alone, and they also cannot be solved without placing knowledge in a practical context. These challenges include worldwide poverty, the spreading of infectious diseases, fundamentalism in religion and politics, climate change, arrested democratization, among many others. Therefore, the compass directing my work here at CEU has always been aimed at combining intellectual excellence with social relevance

UNIVERSITY OF DEBRECEN  
The University of Debrecen, like other integrated institutions of higher education in the country, was formed on January 1, 2000 by (re)uniting formerly independent institutions. Its historical roots reach back to the foundation of the Reformed College of Debrecen (1538), whose three academic sections later served as the base for the Hungarian Royal University of Sciences, created by Statute no. 36 in 1912. With this past of more than 450 years, the University of Debrecen is the oldest institution of higher education in continuous operation in Hungary based in the same city. Higher education in agriculture began in 1868, when the National Higher School of Agriculture was formed in Debrecen. The University of Debrecen has a student body of 29,000, out of which 19,000 are full-time students. More than 1400 instructors teach at the University, making it one of the largest higher education institutions in Hungary. Its 11 university and 4 college faculties, and 21 doctoral schools undoubtedly offer the widest choice of majors and other forms of training.

UNIVERSITY OF PECS  
University of Pécs, its diverse range of activities and various unique features. We will introduce you to the more immediate environment of the university together with the cities where the various faculties and units are located. It will become clear from the chronological data concerning the history of our University how significant a role the University of Pécs has played in the evolution of Hungarian higher education. By introducing the various faculties and other teaching and medical units we will outline a synergic and many-colored spectrum of training and research that offers a unique range of alternatives to those wishing to pursue their studies in higher education.

UNIVERSITY OF MISKOLC  
In 1949 Act 23 of the Hungarian Parliament decreed: "for the advancement of higher educational technical training a Technical University for Heavy Industry is to be established in Miskolc. The university will contain faculties of mining, metallurgical and mechanical engineering." Owing to the faculties of mining and metallurgy, the new technical university at the centre of the industrial zone of Borsod had a two-and-a-half-century-long history. The predecessors of the two faculties were operating in Selmecbánya until 1919 and then, until 1949, in Sopron. Between 1949 and 1959 the departments of the Faculty of Metallurgical Engineering and the Faculty of Mining Engineering gradually moved to Miskolc. In 1735 the Court Chamber of Vienna founded a school of mining and metallurgy in order to train specialists according to the requirements of the industrial revolution, and to upgrade precious metal and copper mining in Hungary (which was playing an important role in European relations). In the Hapsburg Empire the school of Selmecbánya was the first school founded by the state and operating under non-ecclesiastical control. One of the first professors of the school was Samuel Mikoviny, who was an engineer and mathematician of outstanding knowledge, and a dominant figure in Hungarian cartography.

SEMMELWEIS UNIVERSITY  
Semmelweis University, as a specialized university, plays a unique role within Hungarian higher education. In addition to its prominent role in Hungarian health care, it also enjoys a distinguished international reputation, being, in fact, the first institution to be mentioned by the European Union when discussing health-related education in Hungary. University instruction takes place in three languages, and 1,500 of our 11,000 students are foreign citizens. Over the past few years, 42 percent of physicians, 70 percent of dentists, 50 percent of pharmacists, 80 percent of physical education teachers and coaches, and 27 percent of public health officials in Hungary graduated from Semmelweis University. In addition, the university is dedicated to the education of newcomers to the medical field (School of PhD Studies), as well as to vocational training and advanced specialized training. Since its foundation, the University has issued almost 100,000 internationally recognized diplomas. Degrees obtained at the Faculty of Medicine, the Faculty of Dentistry and the Faculty of Pharmacy comply with all European requirements, and medical diplomas are accepted in two American states.

UNIVERSITY OF PANNONIA (UNIVERSITY OF VESZPREM)  
Concerning the last years the University of Pannonia has performed a dynamic development: new faculties have been established, new schools have been launched and the training forms have been transformed significantly. Today as a sheer university we deal with a large spectra of the natural sciences of art, sociology, technology, agriculture and economics. In the future we strive to adapt to the changing conditions and to measure up to new challenges. Tenders of the European Union (among others FEFA, PHARE supports) enabled this remarkable almost unique development in the country.

CORVINUS UNIVERSITY OF BUDAPEST  
Although Corvinus University of Budapest has recently been given its name, it is an all the more significant institution in Hungarian higher education due to its traditions and the results it has achieved in education and research. As a result of an integration process going on during the past few years, the Budapest University of Economic Sciences and the College of Public Administration merged in 2000. The faculties of the former University of Horticulture and Food Industry, the traditions of which go back to one and a half centuries, joined the institution in September 2003. The Academic Year Opening Ceremony in 2004 was also a name-giving ceremony. In virtue of the resolution adopted by the Hungarian Parliament, we took on the collectively accepted name "Corvinus University of Budapest" as of September 1 of that year. This name reflects a humanist institution that brings together several disciplines from social sciences to natural sciences. It willingly undertakes the human-, science- and culture-centered traditions and values appropriate to a university. Recalling the world of Renaissance, it focuses on refinement, richness in detail, variegation and creating value. The scholars of the three predecessor institutions working in different disciplines have agreed to join forces for shaping our knowledge-based society where we have to present and exploit those elements of the knowledge mass, which reinforce each other and - due to the different approaches - may lead to new research results and can provide a unique offer on the educational palette.

The various buildings of the modern campus in Gy?r were built between 1971 and 1977. During the 1970's and 1980's the institution strove to satisfy the need for polytechnic-level engineering training raised by the two determinant infrastructural branches, namely transportation and telecommunications. After the change in the political system in 1990, the institution allotted its development funds to meet the labour expectations of the prosperous economy of the region and the demands of multinational companies, which had settled in the region.

A new national institute came about, involved in research, development and services in the field of public education, with responsibilities determined by the ever changing needs of a diverse, multi-player system of public education.
