For many students living away from home is a new experience. UPMS ISC’s housing not only provides you with choices, but also is a jumping-off place for lifelong friendships.
Hungary is a member of the Schengen Area, which comprises 22 member states of the European Union. The Schengen Agreement created Europe’s borderless Schengen Area with no internal border controls. Several members of the European Union, i.e. Bulgaria, Cyprus, Ireland, Romania and the United Kingdom, are currently not part of the Schengen co-operation.
In Hungary banks are open on weekdays from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. (on certain days till 5 or 6 p.m.). Banks are not open on Saturdays or Sundays.
The Hungarian healthcare system is well organized: primary health care is available from family doctors, and they refer patients to specialist doctors at the Clinical Center. All higher education institutions provide a health care facility at their medical centres.
The Health Center offers medical services for ISC students at their campus at Nyár utca 8. You can make an appointment to see the doctor if you feel ill, or inquire about vaccinations when preparing for international travel etc.
Pécs is located in the Southern part of Hungary. Budapest-Pécs Intercity trains leave regularly and arrive in 3 hours’ time. Motorway No. 6 leads directly to Pécs if you drive by car.
Students can easily move around Pécs by bus. We help them to apply for their student card and then they can buy cheaper bus passes. During the first month of your stay please buy full price bus passes to avoid being charged with a fine.
Our students have access to a number of services, for example psychological counselling, sports facilities at different locations around the city, the City Library to expand their horizons.
Our city was the European Capital of Culture in 2010.
