This course examines the changing intercultural climate within the European Union in light of global challenges and pressures such as the ongoing refugee crisis, transnational terrorism and regional cooperation across Central and Eastern Europe, especially within the Visegrad Four. Globalization, or more precisely,”Glocalization,” will be discussed from various identity-related angles, including the perspectives of university cities bearing the title “European Capital of Culture.”

Our International Summer School will give you an opportunity to do more than just study!

During your stay we will organize various cultural events, such as our famous Quiz Night where different teams will compete with their knowledge about the European Union. We will also have a Pizza Night organised just for you! Is there anything better than chilling with a slice of pizza?

Do you want to also see some magic?

Our Summer School will provide you with the opportunity to be a part of the Zsolnay Light Festival, which is a multi-arts festival blending the amazing legacy of Pécs's 2000 years of history with a fantasy world.
