Be an Exchange Student Ambassador

Being a student ambassador of UP MS abroad

If you are currently a student of UP MS who has won an international exchange opportunity, you are one of our most valuable representatives abroad. You may be asked to give a presentation about the University of Pécs Medical School at university events, or can participate in a Study Abroad fair during or after your exchange where you have the right and responsibility to act as an ambassador of UP MS.

Your key task is to inspire potential exchange students to come to UP MS. Exchange students strengthen the international profile of our Medical School, which is an important contribution to the high world ranking of our Faculty, since the more incoming exchange students choose our Faculty, the more students at UP MS have an opportunity to go on an international exchange.

Here you find some helpful information to facilitate your role as a student ambassador:

Admission and Academic Bulletin:

Sometimes exchange students at our partner universities are asked to give a presentation about their home university at their host institution. In such a case, please contact us so that we can help you with additional information and useful materials. Send us an email to in good time before the presentation so that we can send you international brochures, posters, bookmarks and digital material.

Perhaps you have your own idea on how to promote UP MS – email your suggestions to the Office for International Relations and Erasmus Programme

Ask our Students!

What better way to find out about the student life, campus environment at UP MS or about living in Pécs, Hungary, than by asking actual students? If you are ready to be a contact as a UP MS Medical student, please let us know the field you would be here to help prospective students with and your email address through which they can contact you.

We encourage our visiting students to reach out to our UP MS students and ask them to share their experiences.

ERASMUS+ - The European Union's programme for education, training, youth and sport (2021-2027)

Erasmus+ is one of the European Commission's most successful and best-known programmes. Funded by the European Union for almost 30 years, Erasmus+ has enabled more than 3 million European students to spend part of their studies in another European higher education institution or at a European organisation. Studying abroad is a key focus of the Erasmus+ programme and has proven to have a positive impact on later career prospects of the participants. It is also a chance for students to improve their language skills, become more confident and independent, and get to know the culture of the host country at first hand.
