The Hungarian University of Sports Science (HUSS) has a Students’ Scientific Association (TDK), established in the 1950s. Each year the University organizes a conference, where students give oral presentations regarding their research work. The best student presenters enjoy the opportunity to attend the National Student Scientific Conference, where they are always very successful.

Before Covid -19 almost every two years the University organize and hold the International Student Science Conference (ISSC), where internationally well-known scientists, both junior and senior, are invited.

The students with their mentors publish their results in national and international journals. In addition, the doctoral and TDK students are supported in their efforts to visit the research institutions and laboratories of European, North American and Asian higher educational institutions.

We believe in the power and importance of international mobility and foster institutional collaborations that facilitate such exchange opportunities for our students. Our university community takes pride in widespread scientific connections, which make it possible for international students to conduct research in our laboratories.

The University is actively involved in international conferences and academic publications, and many serve as editors or editorial board members of national and international journals.

The HUSS has achieved a great deal in science, while continuously exploring ways of expanding our research portfolio and ensuring that high-quality infrastructural facilities aid our research at all levels.
