The objective of this summer program is to introduce the Hungarian cultural heritage from many different perspectives. This summer program will help you gain insight into Hungary’s gastronomy, wine culture, history, religion and folk traditions, and political, economic and social challenges. Interactive team building intercultural sessions will also be part of this program with professional lecturers and virtual guided tours.


This is what our students had to say about the program:

„Being totally honest, I was a bit sceptical at first if the course held online can be as fun and entertaining as an on-site course would be, but the Pécs Summer School exceeded my expectations in every level. The content of the course was really well-made and even though held online, I got the feeling as I was actually in Pécs learning about the local food and exploring the museums and sites nearby. The enthusiasm and passion of the professors was evident and made me want to look for exchange opportunities in the University of Pécs! 
I cannot wait to be able to actually travel to Hungary and Pécs and see it in my own eyes after this rewarding Summer School experience :)”

Tikka Riina Maria, Finland, 2020

„While there is no virtual substitute for the flavors and aromas of Hungarian gastronomy, our class was treated to the warmth of an intimate cooking lesson. We were able to appreciate the arts and architecture of distant cities without boarding a tour bus. We listened together to Hungarian folk songs and we clapped our hands during the dances! Grateful for all of the brave professors and excellent student mentors who managed to express their enthusiasm, extend their hospitality and share their knowledge of Hungary's rich cultural heritage using an online platform during this unusual 2020 summer.”

Jeffrey Alan Mar, USA, 2020

"I have never imagined myself going through the beautiful country of Hungary and getting to know its cultural heritage as I did during the summer school programme. Today, I feel pretty lucky for having done that and I can't wait for my second trip there. Everyone should try and visit this little European gem and pass by the charming city of Pècs in order to enjoy its exquisite cuisine and meet its lovely locals!" 

Anthony Rizk, Lebanon, 2019

„My Time in Pecs was the most brilliant and exhilarating experience. Learning about the Hungarian culture was a life changing time I will never forget.” 

Mark West, United Kingdom, 2019

"The Cultural Heritage of Hungary was a beautiful experience, during which I learned much about the cultural traditions of Hungary. I enjoyed each course with all my colleagues, and every visits and trips that we made.”

Tudor Urea, Romania, 2019

„Being part of this summer school has stimulated new perspectives, ideas, and thoughts within me, gave me a unique opportunity to look at the culture and heritage of Hungary closely, and created a long-lasting impact, which eventually made me enriched. I can’t express through my words how privileged I am.”

Sinharay Mridutpal, India, 2020
