Opening ceremony of the new academic year at the Medical School and Faculty of Pharmacy

5 September 2022

The opening ceremony of the academic year of our School and the Faculty of Pharmacy took place on 4 September, where Dr. Attila Miseta, Rector of UP, delivered the first speech.

"You have come to a place where you will learn everything from the world of molecules to the basics of biophysics, the workings of cells, tissues, and organs, which you will need later in practice. Many times during your career, you will look back with gratitude at the classes where you had to learn things in a seemingly redundant way. At the university, the first thing you have to do is learn how to learn" - these were the words with which the Rector greeted the first-year students.

Welcome speeches were delivered by Professor Ferenc Gallyas, Head of the English Program, and Professor Péter Than, Head of the German Program, followed by a speech by Dr. Lajos Botz, Dean of the Faculty of Pharmacy. He said that in today's turbulent, epidemic-ridden world, the common goal is to train pharmacists who can overcome difficult situations. He added that they will not have an easy time of it, but their teachers are committed to helping them become well-prepared professionals. Professor Judit Pongrácz, Head of the Biotechnology BSc program, concluded the series of speeches.

After taking the oath, the first-year students were welcomed by Martin Pénzes, President of the Medical School’s Student Council, Paula Kvame-Aarrestad, fourth-year English program student, and Luca Hagel, fifth-year German program student.
