About

National University of Public Service, a “University of cooperation”

The National University of Public Service (NUPS) is a unique institution situated in Budapest, the capital of Hungary.

NUPS is the key educational institute and thin-tank of the Hungarian public service, thus being responsible for the education of future personnel of public service including civilian professionals as well as military and law enforcement officers. Besides these, NUPS is the sole institution providing continuing education and executive training for practicing professionals. In this sense NUPS provides a carrier-long training and learning platform from undergraduate-level to senior and executive civil servants and by doing so offers a knowledge-based carrier-advancement development opportunity. Lecturers of NUPS are members of academia and often practicing professionals at the same time, thus students not only receive theoretical knowledge but first-hand experiences as well. In addition, to serve the needs of central and local governments, the University has developed a “comprehensive approach” enabling the later mobility and cross-carrier paths between civil, military and law enforcement services. Furthermore, NUPS not only pays attention to developing world-class education but also to creating a modern, lively, open and student-friendly environment with the most developed infrastructure.
