»» PCU At present, the Partium Christian University organizes its study programmes, that is, Human and Social Studies, Economics, and Arts, within the framework of three major faculties. Thanks to the institution’s accreditation it has become possible to organize MA programmes, thereby you can complete the second cycle of the Bologna System based education. More than 1000 students are enrolled in the PCU’s BA and MA programs, and with the setting up of new departments this number will hopefully be raised to 12001300, which would mean restoring the conditions before the adoption of the Bologna System. »» SOPCU (PKED) The Students’ Organization of the Partium Christian University (SOPCU) is a nongovernmental and non-political student organization. It was founded in 1995 as the Students’ Organization of the “Sulyok István” Reformed College (SOSIRC). In 1999, when the Partium Christian University was established, the organization was renamed SOPCU.


»» Colloquia Language Center Is an institution under the auspices of the Partium Christian University. The main focus of the institution is the administration of examinations, but it also offers quality language education to all at an affordable cost, in a supportive, friendly atmosphere, where students come first, whether their goal is academic, professional or personal self-improvement. From absolute beginner to proficiency level, there’s a program to meet your needs. They offer customized classes that are adapted to  the learners’ exact needs and work schedule. Rapid acquisition of foreign language proficiency is essential to compete in today’s global marketplace.
