UD Values, Vision and Mission

By 2020 the University of Debrecen intends to become a highest-ranked research university through integrating education, research, health care and agricultural activities with an international ranking in the upper half under both, “programs” and “institutions”. Due to a wide offer of English language degree programs, combined with an outstanding quality of education, the UD has been successful in attracting the greatest number of international students, out of all Hungarian higher education institutions.

The university is an active member of the international scientific community and has many partnerships. The university’s research and development activity has steadily grown and is ranked as outstanding when compared nationally.

Supporting students’ scientific activities is a top priority. The best graduates are encouraged to start working in this field at the university after their graduation. The University of Debrecen provides its graduates with a practical background and labour-market oriented knowledge, which is far above the average national level by involving them in practical work through partnerships with local and national companies.
