The University was founded in 1635 and has been continuously operating ever since. During the Ottoman occupation, the most tragic years of our country's history, Archbishop of Esztergom Péter Pázmány established the university, which proved to be of epochal significance in the history of education and religious culture in Hungary.


Pázmány Péter Catholic University is a scientific community that, through its strict and critical approach, promotes the protection and development of human dignity and cultural heritage by research, education and other activities provided to the given national and international community especially in the field of theology and human sciences but as much as possible in the area of natural sciences as well.


Research work at the Faculty focuses mainly on the interdisciplinary area between life sciences, computer science and engineering, and on strengthening the convergence paradigm of these fields. The flat departmental organization of the Faculty makes cooperation between different research groups particularly easy.

The Central Office for Foreign Affairs was set up on 1st September, 2015 because the operation of the international network system, the growing number of bi- or tri lateral agreements, the central management of mobility programs and the coordination of the international research programs made the creation of such an organisational unit indispensable. 

Student Reviews

University is like learn to swim.
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

Our university is a small one in Budapest, every teacher knows every one of us. This is really helpful, we don't feel like we are swimming in an ocean, it's just probably a swimming pool, where you have to survive on your own, but if you really need it, there will be someone who helps you.

great atmosphere, unique material, bad delivery of knowledge
Anonymous rated 2 out of 5 stars

My teacher were friendly and approachable, but most of them were demotivated. The study content was outdated and structured inconsistently. Although I completed my study programme with great results, the delivered material was not in line with the requirements. Therefore the grades do not reflect the knowledge of the students.

It feels like a family
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

It was lovely. The educators really want to best for us and ready to go beyond university boundries to help us with our studies. All in all, I would prefer a little bit more up-to-date material, I felt like what we learn is quite conservative, which of course is necessary to know, but should be extended with today's knowledge.
