Rector’s message


The University of Physical Education (TE) and its institutional predecessor is one of the oldest higher educational institutions in Europe in the field of body culture, including sports and education. Our University combines its traditions and culture to match the new challenges of a knowledge-based society, while taking into consideration various socio-economic demands.

TE preserves its traditions and permanently develops in harmony with what the given period requires. This is why in its educational strategy, theoretical and practical knowledge complement each other. Furthermore, in order to ensure competitive knowledge for the students in each field of study, the amount of sports training is increasing. While developing its educational content, our institution became aware of the practice-based demands formulated by the representatives of the sport federations and educational institutes, i.e. the future utilizers of knowledge. As a result, the training programs have been harmonized with labor market expectations.

The mission of the University is to train specialists who, as future intellectuals, possess a high level of personal and professional knowledge applicable in the various fields of sports. The University concentrates on developing human resources in sports and on transferring the knowledge and professional skills that play a key role in the healthy physical and spiritual development of Hungarians.

Thus, TE is not only involved in forming the social, economic and cultural image of Hungarian sports, but the lifestyle, quality of life and health-aware attitude of current society as well. Integrated education and research development services, which are built upon each other, created through the BSc, MSc and PhD programs of the University, will guarantee the generation of continuous high-quality knowledge.

The revamped programs will soon be backed by a proper infrastructural background. The future campus of Hungary’s most modern sport university will aim not only at the entire renovation of the educational and service centers on Alkotás utca and the sports facilities on Csörsz utca, but the establishment of new facilities, too.

The technical equipment and the technological and informatics infrastructure supporting the pedagogical and coaching work at our University will satisfy the most up-to-date demands of the age. The quality of the facilities and the opportunities entailed will be suitable for aiding the competitiveness of Hungarian sports and the continuous application of the latest scientific technologies. Thus, the multifunctional education and sport facilities, laboratories and public places of great quality and comfort will secure ideal conditions for the students, and will help them show their talents and abilities. Our priority is to facilitate the process of our students’ obtaining cutting-edge knowledge that they can gain for their own benefit as well as that of the sports society.
