Education Founded in 1955, the Faculty of Pharmacy offers degree programmes at undergraduate (M.Sc., Dr Pharm), postgraduate and PhD levels. Teaching currently takes place in Hungarian and English, while a German-language programme is set to launch in September 2011. Talent Fostering There is an excessive demand for admission to the Faculty every year, and a large number of gifted students enrol, who have already achieved success at high school science competitions. This… [+] includes, for example, the gold medallist of the 2010 Chemistry Olympiad held in Tokyo, Japan, which drew participants from 68 countries. Talented students are rapidly integrated into research projects under the guidance of dedicated supervisors and take part in student research conferences at the University, and at national, and international levels. These students often proceed to PhD School, where they become devoted scientists. Career Opportunities Graduates of Semmelweis University’s Pharmacy programme have numerous career opportunities to choose from. Whether these professional pharmacists decide to seek employment in public or hospital pharmacies, the pharmaceutical industry, health authorities, regulatory agencies, or academia, statistics show that they generally obtain their desired job within 21 days of graduation. Research, Development and Innovation The Faculty of Pharmacy has been a research-oriented unit of higher education ever since its foundation. Fundamental research produces some 120 original peer-reviewed papers annually with an impact factor of 200, headed usually by Pharmaceutical Chemistry and Pharmacology. Organic and Medicinal Chemistry, Pharmaceutical Technology, Analytical Chemistry, Pharmacoeconomics and Pharmacognosy are also well-represented in these statistics. Research work is based upon state-of-the-art instrumentation, including a 600 MHz nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometer, mass spectrometers, various hyphenated separation instruments, animal facilities, library, and computational platforms, and are supported by national and European funds. Drug development and innovation traditionally take place in collaboration with industrial partners. New types of drug formulations, such as gastro-retentive tablets of enhanced bioavailability, bone implants, and others have recently been elaborated and patented with assistance from advancements in nanotechnology. International Relations The Faculty is involved in several international collaborations in research and education, both in Europe and overseas. Today especially, strong ties exist with the University of California, the Catholique University of Leuven, and Imperial College, London. Highlight of Accomplishments The Nobel laureate János Harsányi received his Pharmacy diploma from our Faculty, two original drug molecules (deprenyl and vinpocetin) were discovered through the participation of our professors, and several new pharmacy-related, species-specific physicochemical parameters have been introduced, developed and utilised here, just to name a few of our noteworthy accomplishments.
A virtual tour of our University The University of Veterinary Medicine is the only veterinary school in Hungary. It is a state institution supervised and financed by the Hungarian Ministry of Human Capacities and is accredited to issue the diplomas of Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (D.V.M.) and the postgraduate degree of Philosophiae Doctor (Ph.D.) in veterinary sciences. The University has an uninterrupted teaching record for more than two centuries, making it thus one of… [+] the oldest veterinary schools in the world. A Brief History of Veterinary Education in Hungary In 1787, shortly after the foundation of the world's first veterinary school (1762, Lyons) a "Chair for Animal Healing" was established at the Faculty of Medicine in the town of Pest (now an area of the city of Budapest) to provide students of medicine and surgery with basic knowledge of animal diseases and their management, an integral part of a general practitioner's activity at that time. As an independent University, the school has earned an international reputation in the first half of the 20th century. As a part of the countrywide reorganization of higher education in 2000, the University became the Faculty of Veterinary Science of the newly founded Szent István University. From summer 2016 our school regained it’s independence thus the former name the University of Veterinary Medicine applies. International Accreditation In 1995 the veterinary school was internationally accredited by the European Association of Establishments for Veterinary Education (E.A.E.V.E.). The follow-up visitation took place in 2004 with a positive outcome. The accreditation of the Budapest veterinary school was reinforced by the E.A.E.V.E. and the F.V.E. (Federation of Veterinarians of Europe). The Accreditation Report concludes: "The University of Veterinary Science can claim a proud position among its European counterparts. Its young graduates need not be afraid to compete with their European colleagues for their knowledge and practical skills." Since 2004 Hungary is a full member of the European Union which means acceptance of degrees within the EU and their equivalence with degrees from other EU-countries. The Budapest-diploma is accepted in addition to EU-countries in several others as well. After the completion of a board exam in Canada or the US, the graduates are entitled to a residency and to practice in North America. Facts and Figures The University of Veterinary Medicine Budapest is, as appropriate for a country with a population of 10.5 million, the only veterinary school in Hungary. Current enrolment is about 100, 120 and 120 students for the Hungarian, German and English programs, respectively. This means that we have a total of 1400 students at the veterinary school. As in the case of all state universities in the country, the University is officially supervised by the Ministry of Education and its teaching and research programs are also sponsored by the Ministry of Agriculture and Regional Development and the Hungarian Academy of Sciences.
The modern University of Pécs was founded on 1 January 2000 through the merger of Janus Pannonius University, the Medical University of Pécs and the Illyés Gyula Teacher Training College of Szekszárd. However, its roots go back to 1367 when the Anjou king of Hungary, Louis the Great established the first Hungarian university in Pécs. With its ten faculties - Faculty of Adult Education and Human Resources Development, Faculty of Business and Economics, Faculty of Illyés Gyula… [+] , Faculty of Health Sciences, Faculty of Humanities, Faculty of Law, Medical School, Faculty of Music and Visual Arts, Faculty of Sciences and Pollack Mihály Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology- the University of Pécs plays a significant role in Hungarian higher education. The University offers a broad range of training and degree programmes, ensuring high-level knowledge-transfer and research. With its students and nearly 2,000 teaching and research staff, the impact of the University of Pécs extends well beyond the borders of Pécs. A modern higher educational training system initiated by the European Union was introduced in Hungary too, known as the Bologna process, which offers students an opportunity to pursue their studies in a dynamically developing, convertible European higher educational system. The traditional college and university level training programmes were replaced by a three-tier system consisting of a basic training programme (BA, BSc), a master level programme (MA, MSc), and doctoral level (PhD, DLA) programme. In order to meet the demands and the needs of the surrounding community for continuing education, the University of Pécs has started to develop its programmes within the area of life-long learning. In addition, the University attaches great importance to training in the colleges for advanced studies. Nearly every Faculty offers training in the framework of this organisation that encourages students to pursue their own research. Due to the credit system, first introduced in Hungary here in Pécs, an increasing number of Hungarian students participate in international study programmes as an integral part of their education, and likewise, an increasing number of international students and researchers come to the University of Pécs to study and conduct research every year. Therefore, the University continuously works on expanding and improving its co-operation with other universities and international research institutions and is already part of a large network at different levels.
