The University of Pannonia (UP) in Veszprém offers study programs in several areas: engineering, natural sciences, agriculture, information technology, business and economics, humanities, social sciences and pedagogy. The Faculty of Modern Philology and Social Sciences introduced new BA and MA programs following the adoption of Bologna-system in European higher education starting in 2005. In 2015 with the cooperation of ISES, UP launches a new master’s program in International Studies at the new university campus in Kőszeg.

The Institute encourages and conducts research that integrates theoretical and practical studies, responds rapidly to changing social and economic conditions, and contributes at a high level to international political, social, economic and cultural life. Internationally recognized for its top quality reserach by the European Comission, ISES was designated a Jean Monnet European Center of Excellence in 2010 and awarded a UNESCO Chair in Cultural Heritage Management and Sustainability in 2012. The new Institute for Advanced Studies, Kőszeg (iASK), along with ISES promotes socially relevant research in the humanities and social sciences. The Institute thus is continously expanding with its core faculty and affiliated researchers into a leading European think tank and research centre, providing a home for the minds of the future to grow.
