The University of Miskolc looks back to a history of more than 275 years. The world’s first higher education institution of technology, the Mining Academy of Selmecbánya, represented special knowledge and value. Its heritage and relics pervade the life of our University even today. The students studying in the Bologna-type programmes become participants in an up-to-date system of education aimed at meeting the demands of the labour market. Our campus is located in a natural environment unique in Europe; from the academic buildings to the student hostels, to the library, the dining halls to the up-to-date workshop hall, everything is embraced by the Dudujka Valley. Our University is the largest higher education institution of the region of Northern Hungary and a scientific centre of decisive significance both at regional and national levels.
