Be our Exchange Student Ambassador at your Home Institution

Being a student ambassador of UP MS abroad

If you have been a visiting student to UP MS returning to your home university, 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 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 our university at their sending institution. In such a case, please contact us so that we can help you with additional information and useful materials. Send 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.
