Eötvös Loránd University

Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE) is the oldest and largest university in Hungary.

The history of Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE) can be traced back to 1635, when it was founded by Cardinal Péter Pázmány in Nagyszombat, Hungary. The university was originally a Catholic institution, but it was secularized in the 18th century.

In 1777, the university was moved to Budapest, where it has remained ever since. ELTE quickly became one of the leading universities in Hungary, and it has produced many notable alumni, including Nobel laureates, politicians, and scientists.

The university was closed during World War I and World War II, but it reopened after each war. In the aftermath of World War II, ELTE became a center for intellectual and political resistance against the communist regime.

After the fall of communism in 1989, ELTE underwent a series of reforms. The university expanded its curriculum, increased its research funding, and strengthened its ties to international universities.

ELTE is committed to internationalization. The university offers a variety of English-taught degree programs, and it has partnerships with universities all over the world. ELTE is also a member of the European University Association and the International Association of Universities.

ELTE has played a significant role in the development of Hungary. The university has produced many of the country's leading thinkers and leaders, and it continues to be a center for academic excellence, research, and internationalization.
