Eötvös Loránd UniversityAdd to Favourites
Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE) is among the oldest seats of higher education in Hungary, and has been the leading university of the country - as evidenced by international higher education rankings - for many years. Throughout the course of its history, which stretches back almost four centuries, ELTE’s excellence has been based on the strong ties between education and research. Its mission includes preserving and enriching culture at national and universal levels, cultivating science and passing on academic knowledge, and shaping and satisfying the long-term needs of society.
ELTE, founded in 1635 and the longest continuously operating university of Hungary, serves the interests of high quality education and research, building upon the best European traditions. Motivated by the conviction that excellence in higher education is inconceivable without first-rate research, ELTE aims to represent both sides of the traditional concept of universitas at the best possible level: the creative community of instructors and students (universitas magistrorum et discipulorum) and the ideal of an institution actively engaged in the pursuit of various scientific and scholarly disciplines (universitas scientiarum).
