Rector's welcome

On behalf of the management of the University of Nyíregyháza, let me bid you a warm welcome on the official website of our institution. The University of Nyíregyháza, as one of the outstanding universities in the landscape of universities of applied sciences in Hungary, does not just offer high-quality teaching and research but also a personal approach to students, a vibrant students’ life as well as an unparalleled infrastructure.

Our university plays a vital role in the Hungarian higher education sector outside of Budapest and is one of the most important intellectual hubs of the city of Nyíregyháza, county Szabolcs-Szatmár-Bereg and the entire region.

Being one of the state-of-the-art and most popular universities of Hungary, at present we accomodate almost 4,000 students in a beautiful and intellectually inspiring environment. Our university, established by merger of two predecessor institutions in 2000, has accepted the challenges of the 21st century, implementing an education and infrastructure development programme which has made us nationally and internationally known. The building complex of our campus as well as the innovation associated with it, were awarded first prize at the architecture world competition of FIABCI and Wall Street Journal in the category of ”public buildings” in 2009.

In the institutes of our university, future experts are educated in the areas of humanities, teacher training, social sciences, economics, art education, engineering, agricultural science, computer science, natural and sports sciences. Placing a high value on improving the life quality of our special-needs students, our university is accessible in its entire area. To us, the key to success is expressed by our motto: ”Knowledge of generations—For generations”. Due to the high quality and the hands-on approach of our teaching activities, our students receive an expertise that makes them succeed in the labour market.

Since the University of Nyíregyháza seeks to become an international university we provide our international students with a package of all-round assistance related to their studies and later graduation. We also warmly welcome our international partners, teachers and researchers, in order to strengthen and propagate science without borders.

We would be happy to welcome you soon as one of our students and shake your hand at the opening ceremony sending out the message: ”Congratulations, you have made the right decision when you have chosen the University of Nyíregyháza.”
