The growing popularity of the institution amonginternational students, as evidenced by the very positive results of our annualstudent satisfaction survey, is accounted for not only by the high qualityof the teaching but also by the situation of the University’s award-winningmain campus in a rich natural environment, the high level of security in boththe city and on campus, the numerous cultural sites - especially the recentlyrenovated Baroque era city centre - and the comparatively low cost of living.Moreover, the geographical location of the city of Győr facilitates travel tomany of the capitals of Central Europe.
