The Students’ Academic Society, which has been operating successfully for many years, plays an important role in the faculty in nurturing the talent of students with outstanding abilities.
According to the current government decree, the aim of the academic society is to “provide high-level, high-quality professional training by developing its professional program, helping talented students with outstanding abilities, taking part in public life, educating demanding intellectuals.” (Government Decree 24/2013 (II.5.) On the excellence of national higher education)
The organisation carries out and develops its professional program in accordance with the decree, the spirit of the faculty and the traditions of the academic society. It organises courses for its members that go beyond university training, through which interested students can immerse themselves in research at the beginning of their studies. In connection with this, the members organise professional lectures and discussion evenings, where they can discuss today's exciting professional and public issues with invited speakers. The aim is to deepen knowledge, arouse interest and build commitment to research.
Thanks to this serious professional work, the members of the academic society regularly win university and state scholarships, such as the Higher Education and Science Scholarship or the New National Excellence Competition.
The members of the academic society are present every year among the most successful faculty students in domestic and international competitions, and they also achieve beautiful successes at the university level and in the National Students’ Research Society competition.
