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.


Student services

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.
