PPKE ITK welcomes students of all religions and backgrounds, as well as those with no religious affiliation.

The university’s Catholic nature is basically reflected in the values of its lecturers and staff, and in its community-based organizational structure. For Catholic students, a Catholic university will provide a place that is familiar and welcoming: it is undoubtedly a bonus to study at a university reflecting their values, and to practice their religion in various ways. The Faculty offers a wide range of programs to help students experience a loving community, deepen their relationship with God, and clarify their values.  

It is particularly important for students studying in Hungary, living far from their families and their familiar cultural environment, to be able to participate in the pastoral services provided by the Church in order to exercise their faith.   

Catholic Holy Masses are held in the faculty chapel every week. The university chaplain is happy to answer your questions and he is at students’ disposal for spiritual conversations and confessions.  

As a tolerant and welcoming atmosphere pervades our campus, non-religious students or students of other denominations are asked to respect the values of the Catholic Church and accept the culture and symbols present at campus. We respect your belief system but at the same time we kindly ask you to respect ours, even if you do not agree with it. This is the way how we can work and live together in peace and harmony.
