Mission and Vision

The University of Physical Education is one of the oldest, most successful and professionally acclaimed universities for education and sports science in Central Europe. We greatly respect and value our legacy, preserve our traditions and continuously explore innovative methods in education and research. The latter meet 21st century expectations for higher education as well as our students’ expectations of firm knowledge, quality educators and services, along with great extracurricular experiences. Our management is dedicated to serving generations of undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate Hungarian and international students. Our faculty includes globally-renowned educators. Our students and alumni are high achievers in various areas of sports and science.

TE, traditionally called "TF", is the proud home of numerous Olympic champions, great sports coaches, educators and recreation experts. The TE community provides support throughout the careers of our students and alumni, helping them to aspire personally and professionally and enjoy a life-long career support. TE is currently involved in a major campus reconstruction and expansion project. The infrastructural development runs parallel with substantial development in our educational programs and research portfolio, quality assurance as well as a complex internationalization initiative, including mobility services, English language programs and strategic institutional partnerships.

As a result of our modern curriculum, multifunctional sports facilities and community spaces and events, our students enjoy the opportunity to obtain competitive knowledge that meets labor market requirements while accumulating lifelong experiences with unique TE student life. Our dedication also serves larger aspirations of improving the health and wellness of Hungarians and those beyond our borders as well.
