Why should I study here?

The roots of higher education in Eger can be traced back to the beginning of the 18th century. Legal instruction started in 1740, while the teaching of philosophy was launched in 1756, along with the establishment of the College of Theology in 1700.

What are the admissions criteria?

Students need to provide a Secondary school leaving certificate and English language skills. 

What is student life like?

Eger, with its population of 60,000, is a popular tourist attraction; each year, hundreds of thousands of tourists visit the city's spectacular Baroque monuments and historic buildings; the Castle, recalling the days of Hungary's heroic resistance against the Ottoman Empire, the Minaret, built during the Turkish Conquest; and enjoy the open-air bath and the taste of Eger wines. The Gyöngyös Károly Róbert Campus of EKU is located at the foothills of the Mátra mountains with easy access to Budapest, the capital of Hungary. Jászberény, with a population of 28,000, is a town with a pleasant atmosphere in the North Great Plain region of Hungary, 80 km from Budapest.
