This amazing result is the happy outcome of the values that students and professors have been able to create, the excellent professional qualifications, and the high level of training and satisfaction with the services of the School, and also thanks to the very positive opinion of the students. They consider their diplomas to be a huge advantage on the job market. We have achieved this leading place thanks to the constant effort and the sound strategy of the School. All of the knowledge and energy invested have finally yielded results.
“Centre of Excellence”
The Hungarian Accreditation Commitee (in short: HAC) began in 2004 with the so-called parallel accreditation investigations: in this framework, various colleges and universities were evaluated in the same areas of education (History, Psychology, Medicine, Dentistry, Pharmacy and Law). As a result of these audits, the Medical School of the Univerity of Pécs received the title Centre of Excellence. The MAB, with experts from other countries, gave this title only to the best higher education facilities at the Hungarian Rectors’ Conference on the 12th of June 2006. The Institute will own this title until the 30th of June 2011.
