July 9, 2021

Turn 2 at 13:00

After the establishment of the Faculty of Health Sciences of the University of Pécs in 1989, it issued the first diplomas in health sciences in 1993 at a summer graduation ceremony. The members celebrate the most important event of the faculty together with the newly initiated specialists in health sciences, sports sciences, social sciences.

The diplomas will be conferred upon students in a ceremonial event again this year in the historical centre of Pécs, at the Széchenyi Square, with which we would like to honour the graduating students who - after application - want to take part in the ceremony.
