Message from the Rector

Dear Visitors,

as the Rector of Óbuda University, I welcome prospective and current students, as well as all those who wish to obtain information about our institution via the World Wide Web. You can read authentic and up-to-date information about our courses, our lecturers, university news, our successes and achievements. Óbuda University has a lot to offer, because despite its young age, it is an institution with a long tradition and a rich history. We do our job well when we are worthy of our predecessors who reflected the challenges of their time in the most progressive and innovative ways.

Óbuda University offers a wide range of opportunities to participate in international mobility programmes and provides an attractive teaching and research environment for foreign students. We have excellent conditions for world-class research and teaching with a multicultural atmosphere in our laboratories and lecture halls.

Our university’s academic-researchers, the high quality of our training and the innovative activities that take place at our institution are increasingly recognised internationally.

In 2019, when I took over the leadership of the institution, international rankings unofficially placed Óbuda University in 2083rd place, and today, the Times Higher Education (THE) ranking now officially places the institution in 1079th place among the world’s best universities. So we have moved up a thousand places. In THE’s ranking of young universities, Óbuda University is the best Hungarian higher education institution, ranking in the top 301-350 in February 2022.
